WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXERCISE?
Exercise is associated with movements that require some level of physical effort that is implemented with purpose. The benefits of exercise are far reaching and well-documented, not only for physical but for psychological health. Individuals who exercise have a 25-30% reduction in the risk of developing heart disease and stroke compared to sedentary individuals. What’s more, exercise can decrease our chance of developing Type II Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Cancer and some psychological conditions such as depression. Exercise can help reduce pain, enhance our mind-body connection, our overall well-being and improve our sleep quality. Recent reports produced by the UK government in 2018, showed that 66% of adults and just 18% of children were achieving the recommended daily physical activity levels. This needs to change.
