Exercising

An active lifestyle that includes regular exercise helps you keep your body weight under control, potentially lowering your risk of complications from diabetes, including DMO.

Exercising tips

Here are some tips for becoming more active and staying in great shape!

1

Start slowly

Doing a little bit more every time you exercise will still make a difference.

2

Make small changes to your routine

A simple way to improve your fitness is to walk more often. How about walking to the shops instead of taking the car? And household activities like vacuuming, gardening and DIY also count!

3

Make sure it's fun!

Find an activity you enjoy, whether it’s walking in the park or swimming. Getting fit with friends can also help to make it more enjoyable!

4

Set goals

Setting goals in the right way will help you increase your chances of success. This is where the goal setting and tracking features of the Vision Coach app come in handy.
