Finding the time and motivation to exercise on work or school days can be tricky, so why not slip it into your commute – it might even save you money!
Even if you don’t live close to work or your children’s school, you can still incorporate walking, cycling or jogging into your travel time.
Slipping some regular physical activity into your commute is a healthy way to start or end your day. If you can’t do it every day, even just starting with one day a week will increase your physical activity levels. It’s also positive for your children as it can increase their road awareness and experience and help them develop healthy habits later in life.
