Regular exercise reduces the risk of high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Reduced risk of diabetes:

Physical exercise can help prevent the onset of diabetes.

Better hearing:

Cardio workouts have been proven to help improve hearing in the short term and preserve it in the longer term.

Better quitting power:

Research has shown that smokers who exercise are twice as likely to quit smoking than those who aren’t active.

More creativity:

Aerobic exercise can help get your creative juices flowing! If you are stuck on a crossword clue or Sudoku puzzle – get moving and you might find the answer!

Deeper sleep:

Being more physically active during the day can help you get more, better quality sleep at night.

Digestive health:

People who exercise regularly are less likely to suffer constipation than couch potatoes!

If it's been a while, or you've never had the fit bug, starting an exercise habit can feel daunting. Listen to a podcast, and audio book, or your favourite playlists, the time will fly by.

Remember, just starting with 10 minutes a day for a week and you will find a gradual increase will give you results too.
