What is Move your Mind?
Join Dorset in GETTING ACTIVE everyday throughout January. It’s FREE to sign up, we’re asking for participants to donate or fundraise £31 – That’s just £1 a day!
This could pay for 2 x Active Monitoring sessions that provide early intervention support to prevent development of worsening mental health conditions or mental health crisis.
Everyone can take part in Move your Mind, no matter your fitness level. Whether you take part on your own, with friends, family, peers or colleagues you’ll be sure to find an activity to suit you.
Taking part in Move your Mind should push you a little further than your usual activities. This may mean you get extra steps in each day by walking instead of driving or jumping on public transport. You could try something new, meet new people or increase your active minutes by doing more of what you love.
We’ll also have a program of events taking place throughout January for you to join.

January is notoriously a difficult month for many reasons. Studies show that getting active for 30 minutes everyday can help with:
- better sleep – by making you feel more tired at the end of the day
- happier moods – physical activity releases feel-good hormones that make you feel better in yourself and give you more energy
- managing stress, anxiety or intrusive and racing thoughts – doing something physical releases cortisol which helps us manage stress. Being physically active also gives your brain something to focus on and can be a positive coping strategy for difficult times
