Physical activity reduces your risk of a range of health conditions, and helps you manage the ones you already have.
It doesn’t have to be half an hour at the gym – physical activity includes:
- sport and recreation (structured and unstructured)
- active transport (eg, walking to the shops, cycling to work or school)
- a physical job.
Remember: Even small increases in physical activity can improve your health. It’s never too early or late to start.
