Active April

Its Active April for young and old. Good Luck to team Omeo District Health in the Premier’s Active April challenge.

The health risks associated with long periods of sitting are serious, and include heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer. Even regular exercise doesn’t offset the negative effects of prolonged sitting.

On average, adults sit for about nine hours each day, and much of this time is continuous sitting with little movement. This lack of movement affects the way our bodies convert food into energy, leading to unhealthy levels of blood glucose, insulin and blood fat.

The good news is that the simple act of moving away from our chair every thirty minutes can reduce these health risks, give us an energy boost and increase our focus.
