At Active Nation, we are on a mission to inspire the nation to improve their health and well-being because we know we can help people live longer, healthier lives. We know that inactivity is one of the leading causes of premature death, with one in four people doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity per week. That’s why we are excited to launch our “Get Moving for a Longer Life” campaign, and we want you to join us.
Physical exercise has been proven time and again to have numerous health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Even moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, can provide significant health benefits. And it’s never too late to start. Whether you’re young or old, healthy or not, incorporating physical activity into your daily routine can help you live a longer, healthier life.
Join us from Thursday 25th May to Friday 30th June for our #LiveLonger #GetMoving #ReduceMortalityRisk campaign. We want to inspire you to find ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Something as simple as taking a walk around your area, doing some light gardening, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator can make a big difference. Get moving at home by tuning in to our Active Nation Anywhere and getting jiggling, jumping, stretching, meditating, or lifting with one of our thousands of workouts. If you are not one of the thousands using Active Nation Anywhere yet, grab a one-month free trial here.
Our campaign is not just for adults. We also want to inspire children’s physical activity through parents or guardians and limit their sedentary time. It’s essential for their long-term health, well-being, and longevity of life. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people take part in an hour of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day, such as swimming, skiing, or trampolining. There are lots of activities for children and families to choose from at Active Nation. Check out our outdoor activities here. One standout activity for all children and adults is learning to swim. A life skill we all need because being able to swim saves lives.
The past year has shown us just how important physical activity is for both our physical and mental well-being. With the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, it’s more critical than ever to break down the barriers that many people face when it comes to being physically active. We want to encourage you to make small steps and find ways to build more activity into your everyday life that work for you.
Don’t let inactivity hold you back. Take the first step towards a healthier life with Active Nation. Our “Get Moving for a Longer Life” campaign is here to motivate you. By reducing mortality risk, getting moving, and living longer together, we can all improve our health and well-being. Join us today and make a positive change for your future! Find a venue near you.
