    I prefer exercise that has an instructor and is in a group. More sociable and you know you’re doing it properly. I’ve just a Zumba session and strength session this morning. Gives you energy for the rest of the day. Which is why I shall go and get on with doing something useful. :)

    I was thinking especially of those who are struggling with stress or depression. I think 'start small' is really important advice and might just encourage someone to do something, however tiny, when joining a gym or a class is just too big a step.

    It was extremely useful for me. I have just joined my local volunteering group for outdoor activities. Thanks for the link.

    Several people at my running club who struggle with mental health issues have said how helpful they find running to be. There are groups called "Run and Talk" designed especially to support people. I recently had a long conversation with a friend on a club run (she did most of the talking) and at the end, she thanks me and said that it had been an enormous help to her. I really didn't think I had done anything of note.

    A good way to get started is to visit a local parkrun. You can walk all or part of it, and it is a great way of getting some exercise in a friendly, low pressure environment. That is how I started.
