Being active can help you feel good and help you manage stress. Try to build exercise into your daily routine and aim to be active for 30 minutes a day - or try for 10 000 steps! Choose any activity that gets your body moving and increases your heart rate.

Even if you are feeling stressed try to make time for exercise. It can help you to sleep better, improve your concentration and energy, and help you to block negative thoughts. It’s also a great way to socialise with friends.
