Inspiring fitness stories | Healthy eating: fact vs fiction | Fitter feet | 5 tips to boost your mood


We all know it's important to maintain a healthy diet, but sometimes all the different advice on what we should be eating and drinking in the media can get confusing. Age UK sorts out the fact and fiction of healthy eating.

The Government recommends 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic exercise a week if we're generally fit and have no health conditions that limit our mobility. Your exercise doesn't have to be arduous - a brisk walk or some weeding in the garden could make all the difference. Meet 4 older people who've discovered the joys of exercise and have never felt better.

Sometimes foot problems can keep us inactive, and anyone who has experienced foot pains will know only too well how debilitating they can be. Learn 4 steps to fitter feet.

It's important we don't neglect our mental wellbeing when thinking about our health. Here are 5 top tips to boost your mood from psychologist Susan Quilliam.

Best wishes,
