Share Your Moves and become more active

Published: 13 May 2021


A new campaign has been launched encouraging people to share their moves and become more active in their daily lives.

Live and Move is asking people from Exeter and Cranbrook to join in with their campaign #ShareYourMoves, to get an area wide conversation going about what makes it easier to move more, day to day.

It’s been a challenging year and many people’s lives and daily habits have changed, some more dramatically than others. Making sure everyone moves their bodies is vital for wellbeing, but finding ways to do that and making the change isn’t always easy.

Live and Move, who are funded by Sport England as their Exeter and Cranbrook Local Delivery Pilot, are inviting people to share their experiences of the challenges to moving more - and their ideas and solutions.

Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure and Physical activity at Exeter City Council, said: "With summer on its way and the end of restrictions on the horizon there are so many things we might get back to. Getting more active can add to the feeling of wellbeing and maybe increase the choice of things we can do.

“Getting more active isn't necessarily about buying a bike you won't use or jogging kit that stays in the wardrobe. It's also about increasing how active we are in our day to day life. Take the stairs more, park further away, get off the bus a stop earlier, take a short walk during lunch break, just a few ideas. There are so many great ideas, it's about small changes that can make a real difference."

James Bogue, Programme Lead, said: “Physical activity has been talked about for a long time now as a kind of ‘miracle cure’. There’s no doubt that moving more can improve quality of life, and if you find the right way for you and your lifestyle it’s also really enjoyable. We all need some fun as we are moving out of lockdown for the last time.

“Our message to people is to move in ways that fit the way you live, that’s what makes a habit sustainable. We’re excited to share stories of how people in the Exeter and Cranbrook communities are living and moving as we head towards summer!”

Cllr Wood added: "The Live and Move programme is about helping us to become more active to help us feel better and enjoy life more. The #ShareYourMoves campaign is a great way to join in – let's share the ideas for the changes that we have made to move more. Let's show what physical movement and activity means for people in Exeter."
