Small Steps campaign

Exciting news!  Bristol Girls Can is launching a brand-new campaign for 2022.

#Small Steps is our new campaign focusing on mums of young children, inspiring, encouraging and supporting them to take small steps to being more active.

For mums of young children, looking after yourself and getting a bit of regular exercise often comes low on the priority list. The past year has been tough for everyone, but particularly challenging if you’ve been stuck at home with the kids without a break.

If you’re lucky to get a few spare minutes to yourself – where do you even start? Sometimes it actually feels easier to carry on looking after everyone else than to pay yourself some attention.

The good news is that the only right way to start getting more active is the way that works for you. You don’t need gym membership, new clothes or expensive gear to give it a go. You don’t even need to leave the house or ask someone to look after the kids.

Once you take that first small step, whether it’s 10 minutes of hula hooping, a swift walk round the block, or a kitchen disco while you’re cooking the tea, you’ve made a start, take it one day at a time and feel proud of whatever you achieve.

Not sure how to take that first step? We’re here to help you get started.
