What’s in it for me?

There’s good news and bad news about continued activity.  Let’s start with the good news.

I really believe that the benefits of regular activity can’t be over emphasised, particularly as we get older.   Have a look

  • Increased cardio-vascular fitness – stronger heart and lungs
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Less risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Less risk of osteoporosis
  • Stronger joint
  • Increased flexibility
  • Better balance and co-ordination
  • Reduced stres
  • Better sleep
  • General feeling of well being
  • Better concentration
  • Staying independent
  • Lottery win (I’m lying about this one)

The list goes on and on.   The WHO (1997) stated that…’ the greatest health risk for adults is sedentary living.’

Don’t take just my word for it.  Click on this link
