Staying active while staying at home

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both. This can be achieved even at home, with no special equipment and with limited space.

Dancing, playing with children, and performing domestic chores such as cleaning and gardening are means to stay active at home.

There is a wealth of online exercise classes. Many of these are free and can be found on YouTube. If you have no experience performing these exercises, be cautious and aware of your own limitations.

Walking, even in small spaces or walking on the spot, can help you remain active. Stand or walk around your home while you speak on the phone, instead of sitting down.

Stand up whenever possible and interrupt sitting and reclining times every 30 minutes, if possible. During sedentary leisure time prioritise cognitively stimulating activities, such as reading, board games and puzzles.

Relax as much as possible by taking deep breaths and practising meditation.
