Why Staying Active is worth it

Wednesday June 20th, 2018

With the influence of technology on our culture, sedentary lifestyles have become the norm. While it may be tempting to fall into the habit of unwinding in front of the television every night, why not go for a walk around your neighbourhood?

Our bodies crave movement, and all studies show that engaging in regular physical activity is one of the top ways to keep in good health.

If you’re in search of a little more inspiration to sign a gym membership or purchase that bicycle you’d had your eyes on, here are some of the benefits that can come along with staying active:

  1. Natural mood enhancement
  2. Lower blood pressure
  3. Improved cholesterol
  4. Improved blood circulation
  5. Reduced risk of bone loss
  6. Boosted energy
  7. Weight loss
  8. Reduced risk of heart attack
  9. Stress reduction
  10. Improved sleep quality
