Leading a healthy lifestyle

Activity keeps you healthy… physically and mentally!

Did you know? Keeping active doesn’t just do your body good – it helps your head and heart too!

Here are some of the benefits of physical activity:

  • A feeling of well-being in your body and mind
  • An improvement in your overall health and physical abilities
  • Enjoyment: laughing, seeing friends, relaxing, having fun, or taking up a personal challenge
  • New opportunities to meet inspiring people
  • Better performance at school
  • Better concentration
  • Increased self-esteem
  • A stronger body (bones and muscles)
  • Improved mental health
  • Better physical fitness (running, walking, jumping: everything gets easier!)
  • Improved posture and balance
  • Decreased stress
  • A stronger, more resistant heart
  • Healthy development of your body, which is so important in adolescence
  • An improved body image

And you – what are your reasons for staying active?
