Move Your Body

‘One in three Singaporeans does not get enough physical exercise’

movement is not just about looking good. It has many benefits that are crucial for our health – it helps us to feel and perform better, live longer, and with less disability as we age. Movement is vital to our happiness, and can help us to manage anxiety and depression.

Moving our body improves fitness levels. Fitness boosts our mood, energy levels, focus and brainpower. It can spark creativity and propel productivity. People who are fitter are less likely to develop stroke, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. Being fit and healthy help us manage our risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and joint issues, and even dementia.

Movement has also been found to help lower our stress levels and blood pressure.
