Activities for Adults

Activities for Adults

Regular exercise keeps reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke, and risks associated with obesity. It also improves muscle tone and the appearance of your skin. Exercise releases the chemicals endorphins and serotonin, which improve your mood and make you more able to cope with pain. Regular physical activity may contribute to reducing your risk of coronary heart disease, strokes, some cancers, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, dementia and other mental health problems.

Just 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, five times per week is enough to get fitter and healthier.
