Keeping physically active can prevent a range of health conditions and boost your mental wellbeing.

Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. People who lead an active life are more likely to live longer and less likely to develop serious diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Physical activity can ease the symptoms of certain long-term health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD).

Exercise not only improves your physical health, it also helps to reduce anxiety and lowers your risk of other mental health conditions such as depression.

Hot Tips:
  1. Minimise your intake of sugar sugary drinks, concentrated fruit juice, milkshakes sweets, cakes, biscuits, ice-cream, desserts and pastries;
  2. Minimise your intake of processed meats (sausages, ham, deli meats and smoked meats) and party food with chemical additives, artificial colours, flavours and trans fat;
  3. Limit alcohol intake to one alcoholic drink a week.
