Physical Activity | Wellness Resource Guide
Regular physical activity supports wellness in a number of ways.
Physical Health Support
Regular physical activity supports overall physical well-being. Movement can improve body conditioning and also help reduce the risk factors for some chronic illnesses.
Mental Health Support
Studies show that physical activity can help reduce depression, boost mood, and minimize anxiety. Movement is something you can do outdoors; activity in nature is a proven de-stressor.
Limiting activity outside the home can reduce overall movement. Dedicating time for physical activity at and around home can help support healthy weight management.
Physical activity can also increase energy, reduce stress, improve sleep, and aid in relaxation.
