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.
