WHY BE ACTIVE?
EXERCISE FOR OUR WELL BEING
Our psychological, emotional and cognitive health are all important for our well-being. Regular physical activity contributes to our well-being in many various ways.
STRESS and ANXIETY
Exercise, more specifically aerobic or cardiorespiratory exercise can decrease stress and anxiety and improve mood and relaxation.
Physical activity is recommended as a non-pharmacological sleep disorder treatment or for its prevention.
A better physical condition improves self-esteem and facilitates social acceptance, an important component of quality of life.
Daily physical activity provides a better concentration and alertness.
