Health & Well Being
How happy are you?
Good mental wellbeing - some people call it happiness - is
about more than avoiding mental health problems. It means feeling good and
functioning well. Being active can play
a very major part in your health and wellbeing.
People who do regular activity have a lower risk of many chronic
diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and some cancers.
Research has also shown that physical activity can also
boost your self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy as well as reducing your
risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Part and parcel of all activities in our quest for happiness
and fitness is the fact we are all prone to injury and heartbreak. To overcome these obstacles we are lucky to
