Many working people get little or no exercise either during the working day or in their free time, and have health problems as a result.
Why do many working people not get enough exercise?
What can be done about this problem?
It has been seen that working-class people do not involve themselves in physical activities on weekdays or in their leisure time, and this leads to health-related issues. The main reason for this is that they spend much of their free time on electronic devices, and spreading awareness among masses about the benefits of doing exercise is the most viable solution to tackle this issue.
The primary reason why people do very little exercise is that digital devices have a strong influence on the daily life of individuals. This is due to the fact that these devices are quite addictive and once they open their social media account or start searching online, they tend to spend long hours at the screen. Thus, it leaves no time for them to do exercise. For example, a recent study by Cambridge University found that nearly 60% of people admitted that they spend atleast 3-4 hours daily browsing their social media accounts when they come back their home after work and this leaves no time for them to do any physical activity.
To tackle this problem, public awareness is the best solution. When people know about issues associated with the sedentary lifestyle, they might make some alterations in their daily routine. Thus, they will start doing physical activities and keep themselves away from health-related issues. To illustrate, recently I attended a seminar on physical education, and this lecture made a deep impression on my mind that it is vital to do exercise regularly to stay away from diseases. Now, I do exercise on a daily basis.
In conclusion, many working people are not doing enough physical activities, which can result in many health problems later in life. The main reason behind this is that people spend too much time on digital devices and public awareness is vital to teach people about the deterimental effects of becoming couch potatoes.
