Physical Activity

"Being fit translates to every aspect of your health - not only your physical health, but your emotional and mental well-being too. In fact, all three are interconnected. And nutrition and physical activity are fundamental to each one.

When you are fit, you have:

  • Stamina and a positive outlook to handle the mental challenges of everyday life and the emotional ups and downs,
  • Reduced risk for many health problems, including serious diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes,
  • The chance to look and feel your best,
  • Physical strength and endurance to protect yourself in case of an emergency, and
  • A better chance for a higher quality of life,
  • And perhaps a longer one, too."
