Active Updates – Newsflash from Active Calderdale

Posted on Updated on

Here is our news and updates with ideas to keep you active and healthy!

 

 

 

Walk to School week runs 5th to 9th of October encouraging both pupils and grown-ups to travel to school on foot. A number of primary schools in North Halifax have already signed up and will receive resource packs.  If you’re school hasn’t signed up there’s a free resource pack available at Living Streets – Walk to School.

 

 

To Couch to 5K?

Have you been taking part in the Move the Calderdale Way Challenge?  If you’ve been walking more than half an hour at a time why not start the NHS’s Couch to 5K during the last week?  Just replace 3 half hour walks with 1 minute of gentle running (start slow) and 1.5 minute of walking for 20 minutes. It’s a simple 9 week course designed for beginners and there’s an easy NHS C25K app that talks you through each session and even gives your encouragement.

Autumn is here and with COVID restrictions back in place it’s can seem harder to maintain health and happiness and leave you feeling  less inclined or able to get out and about. Why not give yourself a free MOT with the NHS’s One You – How Are you Quiz.  It takes 10 minutes and gives personalised advice on mental and physical health, diet, alcohol and smoking.
