Wellbeing is improved

FEELING GOOD IS THE KEY TO AN INDIVIDUAL’S SUCCESS. IT NATURALLY INCREASES MOTIVATION, AS WELL AS ACTING AS AN ENERGISER, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY.

We know that people suffering from severe mental illness die on average 10-20 years earlier than the general population1. The majority of these deaths are due to chronic physical medical conditions, such as cardiovascular, respiratory disease, diabetes and hypertension2. Sport and physical activity have the power to offer early interventions which can lessen the severity of a whole range of health issues, both mental and physical.3
