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.
