Physical activity is an important component of healthy living! Regular participation in physical activities is associated with important physical, cognitive, emotional benefits and more.
In addition, research shows that being physically active later in life depends on an individual’s ability to feel confident and competent in an active setting, and on being motivated to try new activities in a variety of environments.
Individuals who are physically literate have the motivation, confidence, and physical competence to try new sports and physical activity programs. They possess knowledge and understanding of the health benefits of being active as well as value physical activity.
