increase exercise time

To increase exercise time up to 3 hours a day as long as you observe social distancing and do not drive to a location to do your exercise. You should do the exercise around your home

Why the contribution is important

For physical and mental well being

    At the point where restrictions are starting to be relaxed this seems like a really sensible suggestion to help reduce the mental health issues that people might be facing with the lockdown., as long as it’s totally clear that distancing and other precautions should be maintained

    Is there a time limit on exercise? I must confess i thought it was one period of exercise and for some people that can be a longer period depending on their level of fitness. In terms of driving i believe this should be as it is in the rest of the UK where as long as the driving is much shorter than the exercise period this is ok. This takes people away from the crowded pavements especially at weekends

    Disagree. Exercise should not be restricted at all, and one should be permitted to do so where one likes. Scotland is a land of beautiful hills and beaches which are there to be enjoyed by all. For those living in towns they need and should have the freedom to get out into the country/to the beaches if they so wish. It's summer, we all need exercise and we all need space. If everyone is exercising/out for three hours at a time in city centres then the parks, walks, etc. are going to be congested and there will be no social distancing whatsoever.

    We are already able to exercise multiple times a day with no limit of time, the only place where exercising once a day only was legally enforced was in Wales. I'm not sure why people think the concession on exercise multiple times a day is something new. There is no time limit either.
