We’re all 23.5 hours away from getting fit

We can all make excuses to put off making time for exercise, and that doesn’t have to be a sweatsoaked session in the gym.

The single biggest difference to improving health is being active for up to 30 minutes a day or 150 minutes per week. Staff can learn more by watching a short, light-hearted, animated video, “23.5 hours” narrated by Dr Mike Evans, a Canadian professor of public health.

As well as exercise, Dr Evans also talks about the benefits of weight watching, eating a healthy diet, cutting down or stopping smoking and drinking sensibly.

Chris Kelly, health improvement senior (physical activity), explained that the idea behind the video is to keep inactivity to 23-and-a-half hours.

He went on: “Hopefully the message will strike a chord with staff, who will then pass the information onto patients.”
