The problem of physical inactivity is like an annoying fly that won’t go away. It constantly remains in the guilty conscience of many as they reflect on their sedentary lives and the potential consequences it can have.
Many day dream about an active lifestyle, sign up for new commitments, however more often than not are entangled by the busyness of life and being active once again falls to the bottom of the priority list.
Physical inactivity can have a serious impact on people’s lives. According to the World Health Organisation, physical inactivity is contributing to the leading cause of death in the world as it’s one of the major risk factors for the development of chronic disease including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Type 2 diabetes
Conditions that often seem distant from your concerns often become an unfortunate reality for many who don’t seek to bring about change in their lives.
More than HALF of all Australian adults are not active enough. Make your move today.
