Moving is good for you. And you don't need to hit the gym or run for miles in the rain to feel the benefits. However you move, as long as you move more, it all counts.
That Counts! is Greater Manchester's campaign that’s inspiring us all to move more, in our own way.
It could be dancing around the kitchen, jumping in puddles with the kids, walking the dog or running for the bus.
Visit That Counts! for more ideas and inspiration for your way to move for 30 minutes a day.
Keep your drinking in check
Regularly drinking beyond recommended amounts can have many, often hidden, effects. Switching alcohol for soft drink alternatives from time to time can boost your physical and mental wellbeing.
Looking at how and when you drink can help you stay in control.
Visit our Drinking pages for information and advice.
Making some small changes to your diet can cause a big difference to how you feel. From cutting down on sugar to increasing your fruit and veg, there are many ways you can make a change.
When it comes to food and drink, the healthy option is not always the easy option.
Visit our Eating pages for information and ideas to help.
Make a note of this
Songs can really lift your mood. Don't sit there in silence, suffering from annoying noise or dwelling on your worries. Escape into a world of music instead.
There are loads of ways to get music when your at home or on the move.
And music is one of the things that makes Greater Manchester great. Why not take advantage of so much going on to get out of the house and meet other people? Visit Manchester can help you find out what's going on right across the city region.
Take one away
Eating too much sugary, salty food can really get you down. You don't need to cut it out completely, but cutting back can make a big difference to howe you feel.
Cut out one unhealthy readymeal or takeaway a week. Replace it with something homemade and a bit more healthy - even if it's just beans on toast. Visit our Eating pages for some ideas.
Give a little kindness
Doing good feels great. Even small acts of kindness can make a big difference to someone nearby, and help you feel happier and more fulfilled.
With over 15,000 voluntary and community organisations across Greater Manchester, there are loads of opportunities to give something back. Visit Do-it.org for easy ways to volunteer nearby.
If that feels a big commitment, simply talking to your neighbours or saying hello and thank you to people when you're out and about can be a great way to start.
