Encourage low risk exercise

Encourage low risk exercise

Levers for Public Health Restrictions Low risk physical pursuits, are good for mental and physical health. Encourage more outdoor activities, minimise contact within them, overall a lot of benefits.


The mortality rate in the UK of the pandemic has shown that our very high levels of obesity are extremely damaging, now & in a non-Covid future. The Govt is relatively successful in tackling smoking, is positively addressing Scotland's alcohol problem and is starting to address diet. The area where no progress has been made is in relation to exercise and sport, especially school sports where sports grounds have been sold off & therefore lost permanently - Australia is an example to follow.

I would also rewrite this to include encouragement of team sports, school sports, sports clubs etc.
