At Active Nation, we believe that everyone deserves a longer, healthier life. But did you know that one in four people do less than 30 minutes of physical activity per week? Inactivity is the leading cause of one in six deaths – a startling statistic that we cannot ignore. That’s why we are launching our “Get Moving for a Longer Life” campaign, and we want you to join us.
Regular exercise has been proven to improve overall health and help us live longer, healthier lives. Even moderate physical activity can provide significant health benefits. And it’s never too late to start! Something as simple as brisk walking for 150 minutes per week can increase your life expectancy by about 7 years – regardless of your age, sex, weight, or health conditions.
The cost of living crisis has put a spotlight on just how important physical activity is for both our physical and mental well-being. It’s more critical than ever to break down the barriers many people face when it comes to being physically active. We want to encourage you to make small steps and find ways to build more activity into your everyday life that work for you.
Don’t let inactivity hold you back. Take the first step towards a healthier life with Active Nation. Our “Get Moving for a Longer Life” campaign is here to motivate you. Let’s reduce mortality risk, get moving, and live longer together.
We’re not just focused on adults either. Our campaign also aims to inspire children’s physical activity through parents or guardians. It’s essential for their long-term health, well-being, and longevity of life. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people take part in an hour of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day, such as swimming, skiing, or trampolining. And they should limit the amount of time they spend being sedentary.
