Moving your body for health

Physical activity is any movement of the body that leads to energy consumption, ie burning calories. Any physical activity – walking, cycling, dancing or cleaning the house – is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some types of cancer. At the same time, physical activity helps control weight and maintain mental health.

Regular exercise, experts say, reduces stress, nervousness, increases self-confidence, self-esteem and contributes to the feeling of satisfaction. In short, we will be more successful if we are on the move.
