Achieving a goal, however small, is empowering. This will boost self-confidence in all areas of life. Exercise may tire us at the time but in the long-term it will give us more energy. We may sometimes find that regular exercise makes it easier to complete our every day activities, like getting up and dressed in the morning.

It also improves sleep which means we get a double-boost to our energy levels. It helps memory, brain function and will reduce stress. Exercising is also a great time to do some thinking and problem-solving.

Getting active will become fun (even if it isn’t at first!). And the more fun it is, the more we’ll benefit.

If you are not as active as you would like to be or you know someone who isn't, we have lots of resources or contacts to help you on your way. Here are a few ideas:

  • Read our Being Active Guide to see how you can get started. It is for everyone with lived experience of disability or health conditions. We wrote the Guide in partnership with Disability Rights UK and it provides the information you need in a quick, easy format. 
  • Every Body Moves powered by Toyota is a way to discover inclusive local opportunities to become more active.
  • There are many organisations working at local and national level that can support you to be active. Some of these are the National Disability Sport Organisations. They can offer advice and opportunities for people with specific impairments.

We hope you find enough information on our site to get started. Get in touch and tell us how you enjoy being active too!
