If you participate in these five common activities regularly, you may lower your chance of developing chronic health issues such as diabetes.
According to the findings of a recent study that was carried out by the World Health Organization (WHO), if people do not increase the amount of physical activity that they engage in, they will be at an increased risk of developing serious conditions for example diabetes and heart disease by the year 2030.
According to the findings of experts, inactivity costs the globe $27 billion every year, which would amount to $300 billion in total by the year 2030.
And the treatment and management of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which are chronic disorders that emerge as a result of genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors, accounted for more than twenty percent of the expenses that have been incurred up to this point.
According to the organization, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes and heart disorders are significantly affected by physical exercise.
According to the worldwide status report on physical activity published by the WHO, just thirty percent of the more than one hundred and seventy nations studied had national physical activity standards for all age categories.
And just a little more than forty percent of those nations have adopted road design guidelines that enhance pedestrian and cyclist safety to the greatest extent possible.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), was quoted in a press release issued by the organization as saying, “We need a greater number of countries to step up their policy implementation that support people to be more active physically through walking, cycling, sport, and other forms of physical activity”.
Thank goodness, there are straightforward and risk-free methods to get more physical exercise into your already hectic life, whether it’s increasing the quantity of something you’re already doing or beginning a new activity altogether. In fact exercising might save you money on insurance premiums. Matt Schmidt with Diabetes Life Solutions states “many insurance carriers may offer discounted premiums on health, and life insurance to those individuals who are active. You can easily track your activities with FitBit devices, and share this with companies to receive lower priced insurance.
Five activities may be done daily that can help minimize the chance of developing heart disease, diabetes, or both.
The Diabetes 365organization suggests the following five exercises that range from light to moderate intensity:
- Take the stairs leading up to your house.
- Household responsibilities such as cleaning up around the house
- Mowing the grass on your lawn
- Decrease the number of times each day that you sit down and do not move your body
The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that persons between the ages of 18 and 64 should engage in a minimum of two hours and 30 minutes and up to five hours of physical activity each week at a moderate level. This can include activities such as dancing and mowing the lawn.
In addition, people of the same age should engage in intense physical activity every week for at least an hour and 15 minutes up to two hours and 30 minutes. Examples of this kind of activity include jogging and other types of exercise that are more taxing, such as playing sports.
In its guidelines for physical activity and sedentary behavior, the World Health Organization (WHO) included the phrase “Doing some physical activity is better than doing none.”
