Our Active Nation is a fitness blog and inspo-hub, created with the intention of promoting healthy living and exercise throughout the UK.
Thanks to the advances of science we are now living longer than we could ever have expected which is fantastic news, however in order for us to be able to enjoy these longer years, it’s really important that we keep our bodies in tip-top condition and the best way to do that is by staying active!
Although exercise is becoming an increasingly common past time for people of all ages, unfortunately millions of people in the UK are still affected by obesity and the health implications that come with this debilitating condition.
Becoming overweight and unfit can be easily done. Some individuals might come from a family where big meals are the norm, others might have a slow metabolism and will therefore need to exercise more in order to burn off calories. There are also various eating disorders and other mental conditions that can often make leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle a real challenge, but this is a challenge that is well worth taking on.
By choosing to live an active lifestyle you’ll be taking a positive step in improving almost every aspect of your life. Taking part in regular exercise will make your brain produce endorphins that will encourage a positive mentality, it’ll also help your heart tick at a regular pace and will help reduce your risk of developing a heart disease in the long term. By eating healthy as well as exercising regularly you can double-down on your new lifestyle and make improvements even quicker.
