Call for culturally-aware crisis support for Indigenous peoples in B.C.
No matter what stage you are at in life, staying active is an essential part of your physical and mental health. Living an active lifestyle has benefits for all areas of your wellbeing.
Being active can allow you to sleep more soundly, deal with stress more easily, and handle day-to-day activities more comfortably. Physical activity can boost energy levels, reduces blood pressure, helps to maintain a healthy weight, and can help with depression and anxiety.
Maintaining an active lifestyle looks different for everyone. There are many ways you can add physical activity to your lifestyle, no matter your age, activity level, or ability. Taking small, reasonable steps each day can help you get started, such as choosing fun ways to stay active that you enjoy.
This can include things like walking with a friend, connecting in nature with others, or exploring your neighbourhood. If you like the activity you’ve chosen, you may be more likely to stay motivated. Find more ways to stay interested in being active.
