Being physically active is more than just going to the gym or doing regular exercise. It’s about a commitment to movement as a lifestyle.
With work schedules that require long hours of sitting in front of a computer in addition to time spent in front of devices used for entertainment, our current pace of life has led us to an increased amount of physical inactivity. This has led to people being overweight and to obesity, which can lead to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.
Small changes in our daily lives, such as those recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the following infographic, will help you bring movement to your health into your life.
