We are Undefeatable!

Did you know that people with health conditions are twice as likely to be inactive, and over a third do less than 30 minutes of activity per week?

We are Undefeatable is a new national campaign which aims to inspire and support people who have an existing health condition to become more active. Being more physically active can help people manage long-term conditions such as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Mobility limiting conditions
  • Heart conditions
  • Cancer
  • Types 1 and 2 diabetes
  • Asthma

Physical activity helps people reduce anxiety and fatigue; improve self-confidence, self-esteem and general mood; and prevent additional conditions developing

It’s easier than you think to start getting more active:

However you get more active, it’s all good. Find ways to move that work for you

Small amounts of activity add up – so it’s good to start small and build up

Finding something that you enjoy means you’re more likely to keep doing it

Living with a health condition means how you feel can change from day to day. Listen to your body and do what feels comfortable.

For information, support and inspiration on ways to be more active that suit your health condition, go to www.weareundefeatable.co.uk

There’s lots of information on local activities at www.activebucks.co.uk where you can download a free trial activity voucher!
