Myth:

 

I don’t have time for much exercise, so I may as well do none at all

Busting it:

 

Some physical activity is better than none, so for those who don’t feel they can launch straight into a vigorous routine that’s fine.

 

Start by trying to reduce sedentary behaviour by:

  • Minimising the amount of time spent in prolonged sitting.
  • Parking your car an extra 5 – 10 minutes’ walk from work or the shops.
  • Turning off the TV and enjoying some gardening.
