Exercise is a vital way of improving both our physical and mental health. It is also crucial to anybody wishing to lose weight.

Once you have found a form of exercise you enjoy, do it:

  • Often enough - 2-3 times a week for 20-30 minutes
  • Hard enough - to make you feel breathless
  • Long enough - it must become part of your life for good.
