Benefits of joining Corporate games
Regular physical activity, such as walking, cycling, wheeling, doing sports or active recreation, provides significant benefits for health. Some physical activity is better than doing none. By becoming more active throughout the day in relatively simple ways, people can easily achieve the recommended activity levels.
Physical inactivity is one of the leading risk factors for non-communicable diseases mortality. People who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active according to statistics from the World Health Organisation’
The statistics further indicate that more than a quarter of the world’s adult population (1.4 billion adults) are insufficiently active. Worldwide, around 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men do not do enough physical activity to stay healthy.
The positive effects of exercise on work performance span far and wide. In addition to sharpening mental performance, regular physical activity improves time-management skills, which in turn improve your ability to meet deadlines. Business owners who offer company exercise programs find that on-site exercise decreases turnaround time. Exercise causes an overall work performance boost.
