Movement is Important to Everyone

Staying Active Matters

 

Activity can keep you healthy longer because it can:

  • Promote bone, muscle and joint health.

  • Reduce your risk of diabetes, colon cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease.

  • Reduce your blood pressure and stress.  Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

  • Manage chronic diabetes and arthritis by improving stamina and muscle strength and by reducing joint swelling and pain.

  • Improve balance, reducing the risk of serious falls.

Inactive people are 20% - 30% more likely to die1.  Any physical activity is better than none.  Simple activities throughout the day will give you what the doctors recommend.
