Physical activity

Regular exercise can help to:

  • improve your mood
  • boost your self-esteem
  • manage your weight
  • reduce your risk of serious health problems such as heart attacks, strokes and type 2 diabetes

The Essex Wellbeing Service (EWS) can help you to set personalised goals and realistic plans to help achieve them. This could include recommending local leisure centres and activity groups. EWS could even help you with a referral.
