Get active!
 You can get active anytime and anywhere. It could involve a walk, cleaning the house, gardening or playing a sport.

Physical inactivity (insufficient physical activity) is the other leading risk factor for noncommunicable diseases (NCD) and death worldwide. Failure to enjoy adequate levels of physical activity increases the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes by 20–30% and shortens lifespan by 3–5 years. Moreover, physical inactivity burdens society through the hidden and growing cost of medical care and loss of productivity. (source: WHO)
