But it's not just about calories burned
It's interesting to know how many calories you've burned being active. But there are many other good reasons for you and your family to get, and stay, active.
Being physically active:
- Is good for your heart
- Can help you have more energy
- Relieves stress
- Boosts your mood
- Improves your body shape
Our Get active, stay active booklet has information, tips and support to help you set some goals and build activity into your day.
Along with being active, healthy eating can also help you to control your weight, your blood sugar and your cholesterol - helping you look and feel great. It can greatly reduce your risk of getting heart disease, diabetes or having a heart attack.
