This year the theme for Exercise Right Week is Movement is Medicine. All of us at The Osteo Collective couldn’t agree more! Especially in this time when we have been cooped up at home during lockdown, it is more important than ever to keep moving!
What is exercise right week?
Some stunning stats and info from ESSA
Being physically active reduces your risk of chronic conditions, like heart disease and diabetes, reduces your risk of mental illness and helps you to live a happier and healthier life. Your body NEEDS regular movement to stay healthy, both physically and mentally.
And yet, Aussies aren’t moving enough… and it’s affecting our well-being.
Over half of all Australians aren’t getting the recommended amount of physical activity.
1 in 2 Australians are living with at least one chronic condition (like cardiovascular disease or diabetes).
45% of Australians will experience a mental health condition, like depression, in their lifetime.
