We have computers, supermarkets, cars, televisions, etc., which makes life more comfortable – but unfortunately probably also slightly shorter.

Because your body is created for movement, it gives problems if you move too little for a longer period of time. Your body will gradually become weaker and stop functioning as it should. In other words it goes slowly into disrepair.

It is therefore quite natural that a very passive lifestyle will sooner or later cause serious problems and even contribute to life-threatening diseases – such as. bad heart, cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes.

In the longer term, the exercise many positive effects – both on the health, well-being, mood and weight.

Do what you can to get up on a half to a whole hour of physical activity/exercise every day
