Girls make your move flyer
If there was one thing you could do to feel healthier and happier, give you a better night’s sleep, more energy, and a sharper mind, you’d probably think it was too good to be true.
But there is something – we’re talking about being active, sitting around less and getting out more.
Physical activity and sport have so many benefits. Being active can help you stay fit mentally, and cope with the ups and downs in life. In addition to greater energy and improved fitness, regular physical activity can help manage stress, alleviate depression and anxiety, strengthen self-esteem, enhance mood and boost mental alertness.
It’s also good for our health – regular physical activity, even of moderate intensity can reduce the risk of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes, osteoporosis, colon cancer, and obesity and injury.
The Girls Make Your Move campaign is about pushing past those barriers and generating positive perceptions of physical activity. It’s about inspiring, energising and empowering young women to be more active, and reinforcing the many benefits of an active life, whether through recreation, sport or incidental physical activity.
We want to encourage sport and physical activity to be a natural part of young women’s lives – enjoyed, not endured. We want to see young women have the confidence and motivation to be active.
