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.
SIT LESS, MOVE MORE
Breaking up regular sitting time is important - even small breaks from prolonged sitting are good for health.
