Your body is neither your slave nor your enemy!
Take care of body; it is the only place you can live in.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines physical activity as “any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that require energy expenditure – including activities undertaken while working, playing, carrying out household chores, travelling, and engaging in a recreational pursuit.” Whether the intensity level is moderate or stronger, physical activity has plenty of health benefits.
Unfortunately, our lives have become more sedentary, whether at home, at work, or leisure. This is significantly due to the growth of urbanisation, new technologies, new jobs requiring us to remain sited during the whole day affecting our body health. Moreover, studies found that work-related physical activity and use of active transit have been decreasing over time while leisure-time physical activity (e.g., fitness and sports) has been increasing.
