We know that a boost of energy and movement can benefit our mental wellbeing but recognise the increased worry among residents around how to deal with what life throws at you. Find Your Active want to support residents in Essex, Southend and Thurrock to still remain active, in a free and fun way. Below you will find a number of resources and opportunities which will help us all move more, without breaking the bank. In turn this will help to prioritise our mental wellbeing and take time away from our daily stresses.

The Find Your Active activity finder highlights lots of opportunities in your local area. From ParkPlay for families to Walking Football, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Plus utilise the new filter, by clicking to see free activities locally! Access here

As the seasons and landscapes change, as does the opinions about using our outdoor spaces. But getting outside as the days get shorter, is still super important. Fresh air is vital for our wellbeing, and Essex has beautiful green and even blue spaces to utilise in the colder months! There are great ways to keep the steps up for free, why not find a new walking route using the Go Jauntly app, attend a family bootcamp or explore your local park with a friend.

We certainly don’t think so! The Find Your Active YouTube channel may have been born during Covid, but lots of residents are still utilising the sessions. With almost 300 videos on offer, we’re sure there is an activity for everyone to try! Come November, the channel will also re-launch with new weekly videos.
