With the temperature dropping and the evenings getting shorter, it’s important not to let the weather put you off your exercise routine or prevent you from starting a new programme ahead of all the indulgence that surrounds Christmas. We know the importance of exercise for our physical and mental health, but are you getting at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week, as recommended by the HSE?

Moderate intensity is described by the HSE as an activity that increases your breathing and heart rate, but would still allow you to hold a conversation, such as a brisk walk, gardening or a bike ride (mostly on the flat).
