We Are Undefeatable is a campaign supporting people with health conditions to be active through the ups and downs, celebrating every little victory. Their website is full of great ideas on how to get active, starting as slowly as you like, and feeling the mental and physical benefits, whatever your circumstances. Below are a few of the key messages from their website and you can also find lots of good ideas on their YouTube channel.
FIND ACTIVITIES YOU ENJOY
Doing something you actually like means you’re far more likely to keep doing it. Try a few activities until you find the right thing for you.
Moving more with friends, family members, and others can also help make things more fun.
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR GOOD DAYS
Each day, listen to your body and do what feels comfortable to you.
Make the most of your good days. On your not-so-good days, you may need to do less. Small amounts of activity all add up.
START SLOWLY AND BUILD UP
Don’t expect to see big differences overnight. Even small changes can have a positive impact on your health.
For some people, aiming for ten minutes of activity a day can help them get started.
Whether you are building movement into your day by doing things like taking the stairs or stretching from a seated position, or trying different activities like swimming, chair exercises, or Pilates, it’s all good for your health and wellbeing.
