After a stroke, starting to be more active can be a massive boost to your recovery and your confidence. Almost anyone can find a way to add movement into daily life. You can be active in your home, and you don’t need to do sports or join a gym.

Being more active can help improve your sleep, and improve your mood. It can help you manage high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. You can reduce your risk of a stroke, stay healthy and feel great.

This guide is packed with practical tips on how to stay motivated and plan more activity into your daily routine. Start moving more at home with activities like chair-based movement, walking and stair-climbing. There is more about being active outside the home, and inclusive sports. We've also got great advice on how to be active if you have problems with incontinence, balance, fatigue and vision loss.
