16/12/20 Enjoy yourself over Christmas but it's worth remembering how important it is to exercise. Exercise boost physical and mental wellbeing and helps you live longer. Scientists reckon being inactive is even more of a health risk than being overweight.
People who regularly complete physical activity have a 35% lower risk of heart disease and stroke and a higher percentage risk diabetes and bowel cancer.
Regular exercise provides a lower risk to osteoarthritis and hip fractures.
Regular exercise can make us feel good about ourselves, it actually boosts chemicals in the brain and helps raise self-esteem, sleep and concentration.
There is also strong evidence that exercise lowers the risk of depression and dementia.
So, enjoy your Christmas and New Year but consider the health benefits of working off that extra food and starting to feel better about your health and wellbeing, what better time to start than now!
