Hectic lifestyles and winter weather negatively impact UK's health and wellbeing

To help get people more active as winter closes in, The National Charity Partnership (Tesco, Diabetes UK and British Heart Foundation) has produced a series of Winter Warm Up videos to encourage more adults to reclaim an extra ten minutes from their busy lives to focus on health and wellbeing.

During winter, an average UK adult spends just one hour and 12 minutes a week doing moderate activity such as walking or cycling.

The Charity Partnership warn that such low rates of inactivity can contribute to rising levels of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
