Activity – the great outdoors is pretty as a picture at this time of year

Autumn is a great time of year to get active. Change your activity patterns to suit the season. Why not swap swimming for walking or cycling with a friend? Take up Yoga or Pilates. It’s easier to be comfortable outdoors without too much sun. Keep up your vitamin D intake by being outdoors around midday. Research shows that fair to olive-skinned people in Southern parts of Australia need 7-30 minutes of sun in the middle of each day in winter, while darker skinned people in southern parts of Australia need up to 3 hours around midday in winter.
