December A to B Star Sarah Jane

04 January 2022

Congratulations to Sarah Jane who lives near Bordon Inclosure. She joined the A to B Actively challenge in August last year and before she took part she was physically active twice a week.

Since downloading the app it's helped her to change the way she thinks about getting around. Here is what she said:

"Since taking part in this challenge I've been getting active every day, 7 days a week. Because I've now been working at home for almost 2 years due to the pandemic getting outside has never been more important for my well-being. I have to get checked annually for Diabetes so the BetterPoints app helps motivate me to be more active and keep Diabetes at bay!

I also asked Sarah Jane what is she is doing that's made the difference?

Inspired by the A to B Actively challenge I choose to walk to pick up the kids much more from school. On the days I need to take the car, I purposefully park further away from their school so we all incorporate some walking into our day.

Plus, I'm thinking about all the other journeys I make too and seeing if I can make them on foot. My first choice now is to walk instead of taking the car to meet up with friends socially either at their house in Whitehill, the Shed or at Bordon and Oakhanger Sports Club.

I've enjoyed the freedom of getting out of the house and make sure I fit that in every day.

She explained the benefits for her:

It's helped me to control my weight, and I do feel more toned. Getting out the house helps to reduce my stress levels. The walking helps me get a break from it all and get out of these four walls. The extra walking has improved my mood, I'm sleeping so much better and feel stronger as a result." - Sarah Jane
