Edinburgh Back to School Tips

Back to School Tip #8: Get Active

Keep going, or get started


It’s proven that physical activity boosts our sense of well-being.

Your Child: If your child started to be more active during lockdown, think about how this can be continued. If not, what small steps could you encourage. Be curious about what may interest them and plan how they could try something new.

You: A lot of us were more active individually as well as together as a family – playing games, going for cycle rides and walks together. We will have noticed the benefit; plan how you can keep these activities going.

Together: As lockdown eases we can benefit from more exercise outdoors and reduce some of family screen time and online activity.

Remember little rewards to yourself and family can help establish a good habit!
