WHO’s new Physical Activity Guidelines. Do you get enough?

According to research undertaken by the World Health Organisation

  • more than 80% of the worlds adolescent population is insufficiently physical active.
  • Worldwide, around 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men do not do enough physical activity to stay healthy….

The new global guidelines emphasize the importance for all people to be active and acknowledges that all movement counts for better health and well-being.

These guidelines include:

  1. Recommendations for people Under 5yrs; 5-17yrs; 18-64; 65yrs and above
  2. Also, there are guidelines for pregnant and post-partum women; people living with chronic health conditions (e.g.cancer survivors, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and HIV) as well as adults and children living with disabilities.
  3. The guidelines outline the benefits and risk of physical activity and sedentary behaviour and offers ideas on how to become more active.
  4. Data is provided on the level of physical activity globally and the WHO action plan to improve physical activity levels between 2018-2030.
