Active Lives

The Active Lives study found that South Australians who accumulated the 150+ minutes of physical activity per week:

  • Reported better overall health
  • Required fewer health services
  • Enjoyed better mental health
  • Maintained stronger social connections and
  • Have greater self efficacy

…compared to those South Australians who did a little or no physical activity.
