Find out how you can join thousands of West Cheshire residents and stay active this winter.
It’s easy to make excuses or say to yourself “I’ll start tomorrow”. But did you know that being physically active helps to reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes by up to 40%, heart disease by up to 35% and depression, dementia and colon cancer by up to 30%?
Studies also show that being active and staying active improves not only our physical wellbeing, but our mental wellbeing too.
The Mental Health Foundation recommend that an adult should undertake an average of 75 to 150 minutes of exercise each week, with varying levels of intensity.
Regular exercise is said to have many benefits:
- Positive impact on our mood and overall mental wellbeing
- Reduces our stress levels
- Improves our self-esteem
To ensure you stay motivated it’s important to set yourself realistic goals, partner up with a friend or join a club.
