How to fit exercise into your everyday life; SELF HELP.

Byline: DR MIRIAM STOPPARD

Set a time for physical activity and stick to it. You're more likely to find time to be active if you do it at the same time and on the same days each week.

Split activity up throughout the day - you can achieve your target in bouts of 10 minutes or more.

Walk your children to and from school. This will also help them develop a strong pattern of physical activity.

Join a gym. Find a class or club that allows children in or offers childcare during a workout.

Exercise during your lunch break. Your office may have a gym, or you may have access to a nearby swimming pool or squash courts.

Cycle or walk part, if not all, of your journey to work each day. Simple changes can make a big difference - such as getting off one bus or tube stop before your destination.
