Be Active: Consequences of Inactivity

Be Active: Consequences of Inactivity

We all know that being active is good for you, but did you know that being INACTIVE has its own set of consequences? That means that for someone who doesn’t do physical activity, not only do they not get the benefits of being active, but they ALSO get the consequences of being inactive. Those consequences include increased risk of:

  • all-cause mortality
  • heart disease
  • chronic diseases
  • certain types of cancers
  • muscle and bone loss
  • disability
  • depression
  • dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

So go out and Be Active! Even just a few minutes every day helps!
