Introduction to the Importance of Regular Movement

As Physiotherapists Perth, we must encourage our patients to lead healthy and active lifestyles. We understand that starting a new exercise routine can be daunting, especially if you’ve been sedentary for a while. That’s why we’ve put together these 10 tips to help you move in 2023 and make it a fun and enjoyable experience.

10 Simple and Fun Tips to Help You Get Moving in 2023

  1. Small walks (10 minutes) are better than no walks. Start with a simple walk around the block and gradually increase the distance as you build your stamina.
  2. Park slightly further away from the shops and increase your walking distance. This minor change can make a significant difference over time.
  3. Ask a friend to walk with you. Having a companion can make the minutes fly by and the experience more enjoyable.
  4. Dust off your exercise bike or pump up the tyres of your outdoor bike. Aim for a 15-minute ride, and gradually increase the distance as you build your strength.
  5. Go for a walk along the coast and enjoy the fresh air. There are plenty of spots to sit and rest if you need it.
  6. Go to your local pool for pool walking. The weather is perfect, so there’s no excuse not to go.
  7. Shopping centre walking is excellent if it’s too hot outside. Have fun window shopping while getting some exercise.
  8. Discover exercise equipment at your local park. Many parks have free gym equipment that you can use to improve your fitness.
  9. Put your favourite music on when you do jobs at home. The beat will put a spring in your step, and you’ll achieve those tasks in no time.
  10. Find opportunities to move anytime you can. Squats while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil, sit to stand during your office work breaks, neck stretches when the traffic lights are red.
