Physical activity

Today, many jobs require little intensive physical activity and most people travel in cars, buses or trains. As a result, many people do not get enough physical exercise. If you engage in regular physical activity, you can achieve a wide range of benefits:

  • Improved strength
  • More energy
  • Improved self-image
  • Improved ability to sleep well.

Regular moderate or vigorous physical activity can help you enjoy life more fully.

Choose an activity that suits you

Consult your doctor before starting a new physical activity programme. A wide range of physical activities are usually suitable, including:

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Running
  • Climbing stairs
  • Gardening
  • Housework
  • Swimming
  • Dancing
  • Working out.

Start your own regular physical activity programme and rediscover the benefits of living a more active life!

Fitting in fitness

The most important step you can take to get fitter is to get started. Some people begin by taking a 10-minute walk during their lunch break or going jogging at the weekend. Some people start by routinely climbing stairs instead of using the elevator, whereas others take their dogs for long and brisk walks.
