Being Active with a Health Condition or Disability

When managing a long-term health condition, being active is about finding what works for you.



Building Activity into Daily Life

There are a range of resources available online that can help you move more. Even better, many of these resources are free, so you can use them whenever you'd like. Many videos and written tutorials are available online, allowing you to try activities for beginners or those that are easy to try in the home. Some of these are structured as classes that you can follow at home. Some are written as guides for you to do in small chunks or in your own time. Search for "at home work outs" or check out one of the resources we have linked to get started.
