Physical Activity

Physical activity is all about moving more and sitting less. It is much easier to sustain if it is enjoyable, and is incorporated into daily life to become a habit.

Physical activity is good for us, not only to help us physically but also mentally no matter what your age or fitness level.

Physical activity is all about moving, so move more and sits less!

The Southern Trust coordinates a number of physical activity initiatives to help communities stay active and increase awareness of moving more and sitting less.
