Being physically active is important for keeping a healthy body and mind at every stage of life. Being active reduces the risk of developing many diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. It also improves mental health, sleep, concentration and mood. It is recommended that we should carry out at least 30 minutes’ moderate activity, 5-days-a-week and two 30-minute strengthening sessions.
