Everyone needs to be active and eat well to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It increases your quality of life and your sense of wellbeing.
Physical activity can reduce your risk of a range of health conditions, and helps you manage the ones you already have.
Remember: Even small increases in physical activity can produce measurable health benefits. It’s never too early or late to start.
Physical activity includes:
- sport and recreation (structured and unstructured)
- active transport (eg, walking to the shops, cycling to work or school)
- a physical job.
