Staying active after being discharged from hospital can be difficult, especially during lockdown. However, keeping active doesn't have to mean strenuous exercise, just having a walk around the house or a light cleaning spree can even be enough. 

Exercise isn't just good for the body, but also for the mind as it can help reduce stress and improve your overall mood. 


Older People

If you're able to, it's important to keep moving while at home.
