Hope House Surgery have signed up to be an ‘Active Practice’ as we are committed to helping patients and staff live more active lifestyles.
Exercise is proven to have many health and wellbeing benefits and research shows that regular physical activity can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke by as much as 35% and decrease the risk of early death by as much as 30%.
Throughout February the staff at Hope House were challenged to ‘Travel from Radstock to Ibiza’ by tracking their activity – all activity counts and can be converted into miles, so it doesn’t matter if you are a runner, walker, or prefer yoga and the gym. We only have a few days left, but it is looking like we smashed the target!
Look out for future challenges that may include patients too!
