The NHS advised (http.//www.nhs.uk/change4life/Pages/get-going-every-day.aspx):

“Most people are not getting the amount of activity they need to stay healthy.  Only 1 in 20 people are actually doing the right kind of activity they need each week.  And sitting down for hours – maybe at work, watching TV or playing computer games –  can also increase the risk of poor health.

Building activity into your day keeps your heart healthy, reduces your risk of serious illness and strengthens muscles and bones.  It can also be a great way of reducing your stress levels and lifting your mood if you’re feeling down.”
