March is physical inactivity awareness month and here are some reasons why this is the case and what physical inactivity does to your body:

  • 150% more at risk of having depression
  • 23% higher risk of developing hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • 82% higher risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease (severe brain disorder)
  • Plus, a scary number of other negative statistics…

These facts and good movements to counteract inactivity can be found from Australian Exercise and Sport Science association -supported Exercise Right pages, which are worth checking out.
