Then she discovered the borough's BetterPoints app and embarked on a fitness journey which now sees her hitting the road for at least four runs a week.
BetterPoints is the Hounslow Council-backed app that rewards members for moving more and being active. Users can get BetterPoints for activities such as walking, running, cycling and swimming. The points can be turned into shopping vouchers or can even be donated to your favourite charity.
Jagdip heard about the BetterPoints app from her employer. She works in the Planning Team for the London Borough of Hounslow Council.
Here is what she said about the BetterPoints Hounslow challenge: "The app has motivated me to exercise more. I have recommended it to family and friends to encourage them as well to stay active. Gaining points rewards is a great extra incentive!"
"I’ve definitely noticed benefits to both my mental and physical health. I feel more relaxed and generally fitter.
"It’s motivated me to also join a local cycling group and I’ve bought my own bike now."
