Benefits of Being Physically Active

Everyone has a desire to be in the pink of health. One of the contributing factors for it is by being physically active. Some of its benefits are listed below:




  • Physical activity reduces stress and tension, making you a relaxed person.

  • You have more energy and feel less tired.

  • Exercise can increase your skills.

  • Physical activity releases endorphins - these are the body's natural "feel good" chemicals.

  • Your muscles become stronger with more physical activity.

  • You have a better sleep when you are regularly active.

  • Being healthy means looking your best - this can increase your self-esteem, which can be achieved by

    exercising regularly.

  • You can use strenuous physical activity as a way of reducing your anger.

  • Physical activity means a strong heart and lungs - they'll last longer.

  • Exercise can also be a way of socializing - making new friends, enjoying the fun of a social team game together, or chatting while you walk, play tennis or bike ride together.



Increasing the levels of physical activity may benefit health through positive effects on:




  • Hypertension;

  • Osteoporosis;

  • Body weight and composition;

  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis and low back pain;

  • Mental and psychological health by reducing depression, anxiety and stress;

  • Control over risky behaviors particularly among children and young people (e.g. tobacco use, alcohol/

    substance use, unhealthy diet and violence).



Being physically active involves moving your body and using energy (expressed in kilocalories, Kcals) at an intensity that makes you warm and breathe a bit deeper than usual (such as brisk walking). Anyone can do this and achieve a healthier lifestyle!
