Higher Education Minister Simon Harris is looking for suggestions to 'shake up' pictures of himself.

He was speaking in the context of the 100 Days of Walking challenge.

The 2021 campaign is well underway, with Newstalk calling on all listeners to take part.

All you have to do is walk for 30 minutes a day for 100 days, starting from January 1st.

Minister Harris told Newstalk Breakfast he's really enjoying it, but hitting a few snags.

"I don't think people want to see another 94 pictures of me out walking - so I'm going to have to think how I can shake up the images a little bit".

"There's only so many cringey pictures of me I can take".

"I am enjoying it... I am finding it a challenge through.

"I thought this was going to be easy, you know, find 30 minutes and go for a walk - no big deal, right?

"But actually you sit down after a day's work or looking out my window here in Delgany today and the roads look awful icy and snowy - and you'd much rather just turn on the television and have a cup of tea".

"But I find it really, really good.

"I'm a big, big, big believer that the best way we can protect our mental health is through physical exercise and getting a bit of fresh air.

"And it's COVID safe", he added.
