Fitness is Helping Improve the Lives of Those with Disabilitiesby Blake Maley Marketing Consultant
Physical activity is an important and great tool for working towards good health, and everyone can benefit from good health! Studies have indicated that physical activity can help control weight, improve mental health, and many other health benefits.
There are currently more than 56 million people in the world living with a disability, and a staggering 58% of those individuals are considered obese.
For people with disabilities, it can help to increase mobility and the capacity to be self-sufficient. It may seem daunting to start an exercise regime, but it’s worth giving it a try to get your physical and mental well-being on track. People living with a disability experience the same emotions as anyone else; however, at times they may be more intense. High emotions such as anger, frustration and depression can all be managed with regular exercise because of the endorphins released.
By accessing Disability Management Programs in Perth, you’ll be able to make a start on improving your physical health! It’s all about finding the ability beyond disability.
Always talk to your health professional about starting a regular exercise routine, more often than not exercises can be tailored or modified to suit you. Exercise also doesn’t need to be working out in a gym, and different people will enjoy different activities – consider doing things like wii-fit or even just some gardening outside.
As soon as you get started, you’ll begin to feel the benefits of a good exercise – and any type of exercise can help, physically, mentally and even emotionally.
