Physical activity matters during this period and, actually, we think it's more important than ever right now. Being active in a way that is right for you, can improve your physical health, help manage stress and anxiety and just generally make you feel better. You can also still go outside for a walk, run, cycle - or any other way you normally get active outside - provided you are doing so in a way that meets the latest guidance on social distancing and advice on unnecessary social contact.
