Northern Ireland CMO launches Start Active, Stay Active physical activity guide

The Start Active, Stay Active infographic which is being launched across the UK, and endorsed by the Chief Medical Officers (CMO’s) from each jurisdiction, highlights easy ways to lead an active and healthy life, doing everyday activities like carrying shopping bags upstairs and walking to work.  The launch of the infographic is complementary Making Life Better, the Northern Ireland Executive’s 10-year overarching strategic framework for public health.  Northern Ireland CMO, Dr McBride commented: “This infographic is a useful, clear and simple way to provide information to the public. Just two and a half hours a week of increased physical activity can have long term benefits. This guide encourages people to walk, cycle, dance, swim and take the stairs. Remember, doing something is better than nothing and it’s never too late to become active and healthy’.
