Stay active indoors this winter

Exercise is important all year round but perhaps most importantly during the colder months when the tempreature drops or it's unsafe to be outside.

This NHS 10 minute workout guide shows you  basic home exercises for people who want to stay active indoors.

Exercising in Winter

Strength, balance, flexibility and sitting exercises are ideal if you want to improve your health, lift your mood and remain independent. Take a look at the NHS 'Easy low impact exercise' section to get started.

Are you finding it harder to stay dry at the weekend? Is most of your drinking at home as an after-work habit, or out with friends where it’s harder to avoid the social pressure?

Horsham District Council’s Wellbeing Team is supporting Alcohol Concern’s Dry January Campaign. 

Dry January is the UK's one-month booze-free challenge that helps millions reset their relationship with alcohol every year.
