Physical health encourages the balance of physical activity and nutrition to keep your body in top condition and functioning at an optimal level.
Be active. STAY active!
Staying active is one of the best ways to keep our bodies healthy. It can also improve your overall well-being and quality of life. Regular exercise has a plethora of benefits including preventing disease, muscle pain, lowering blood pressure and relieving stress. Regular activity (for most healthy adults, please consult a physician for personalized recommendations) is defined as at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity.
The importance of proper nutrition
What you choose to eat each day affects your health and has a direct impact on your mood, energy level and cognitive ability. Good nutrition is vital in leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach your health goals, improve your sleep and reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
