An active lifestyle is a crucial element to our physical, mental, social, and spiritual wellbeing. Physical activity is connected to the reduced risk of many conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and depression, that affect our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Physical activity, which includes work as well as play, has a positive impact on sleep patterns, which, in turn, impacts our mental, social, and spiritual well-being. Incorporating an active lifestyle does not mean the exclusion of rest. Finding a quiet time to rest and reflect, and ensuring adequate sleep is essential to building whole health. It is in resting that the body is regenerated to carry out all the other functions necessary for good health.
