Medical Specialists are Getting Active with the Physical Activity Campaign.
Increasing physical activity has the potential to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and the nation as a whole. Medical Specialists want to see more people being physically active. This campaign runs from July - September 2018, so let’s all get involved. People in the UK are around 20% less active now than in the 1960s. If current trends continue, we will be 35% less active by 2030. We are the first generation to need to make a conscious decision to build physical activity into our daily lives. These are a few activities that provide physical and mental health benefits:
- The impact of some side effects
- Impaired mobility
- Weight changes
