Being physically active is important for lots of reasons:
It helps you look and feel your best. Physical activity can give you more energy, improve your self-image and help you manage stress. Staying active helps shape your muscles, can help you maintain a healthy weight and can improve your posture! It helps you have a healthy heart and body, now and later. High blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, bone weakness and heart disease are things we hear about in older people – our parents, grandparents and others. The truth is that these diseases can begin in youth. Sixty minutes of daily physical activity helps build long-term health. By becoming more active now, you’re building healthy habits that can keep you healthy.
