Get Moving, Stay Active & Live Your Best Life in Blackburn with Darwen this April!

Exercise isn’t just for fitness fanatics or sporty types. Taking regular exercise & keeping active can benefit people of all ages & fitness levels.

Research shows that exercise can improve your health, confidence & your quality of life. It's a great stress buster, can help you to maintain a healthy weight & it lowers your risk of developing major chronic diseases, such as heart disease & diabetes.

Physical activity can also boost your mental wellbeing & change your outlook on life. It can help people with anxiety & depression & in some cases, even help prevent such problems from developing in the first place!

The Active April calendar above from the Action for Happiness team is full of great ways to get outside & get moving this month. Why not take a look & share your #ActiveApril photos with us on Facebook & Twitter? We'd love to see what you get up to & your activities can help to inspire & motivate others in our local community too!
