Physical activity can be fun & helps prevent diseases.
If you’re not used to being active, start small and gradually work your way up. Your body and mind will thank you.
From preventing diseases to boosting mental wellbeing, WHO recommends adults do
? at least 150–300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity; or
? at least 75–150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week.
To help reduce risks from being too sedentary, adults should aim to do more than the recommended levels of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity.
