Move To Your Mood

There are days when we rise without shining and it can be hard to find the motivation to get moving on these days, especially when you are living with a long-term health condition.

We want to support you to increase your confidence to move more whatever your mood, and maybe even lift it.

Which is why we’ve teamed up with Gok Wan and some familiar We Are Undefeatable faces to show you three different physical activity routines, to get you moving whatever mood you’re feeling.


    Whether you’re feeling motivated or not, there’s something that could work for you. It can be at whatever pace and whatever routine tickles your fancy, the most important thing is finding a way to move to suit your mood.


    No bands or weights? Not to worry, you can get creative with everyday household items. From tinned goods in your kitchen cupboards, to a simple tea towel - you don't need to have special equipment to get moving.


    When moving to your mood, it's about listening to your body and doing what feels comfortable that day. You can try seated foot taps or standing lunges - it’s totally up to you!


    50% of people we surveyed felt their moods are boosted when working out with others, so what more reason do you need to bring in your friends, partner or family to move to your mood.

    “I love swimming but on the days I don’t get down to the beach or pool, I enjoy doing activities that still leave me feeling energised. That’s why being part of these videos and showing others ways to get moving that still gives you a buzz has been brilliant and I really hope it helps others as much as it has me.”

However, finding moves that suit your needs can really encourage you to get moving, and with the right support you can enjoy the wide range of benefits to movement.”
