Active forms of transport can have a deeply positive impact on our health


In contrast to motor vehicles, active forms of transport can have two positive effects: improving physical health and reducing exhaust emissions. 

In addition to improving people's physical health, cycling and walking also have very beneficial effects for our mental health. Several studies show that active forms of transport reduce depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. Whether walking or cycling, exercise increases blood flow, releases endorphins and reduces overall levels of stress. 30 minutes walking or cycling a day is enough to help improve our mental health. It can improve general mood and sleep quality, as well as reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue. Physically active people reduce their risk of depression by up to 30%. 

Have you thought about doing something to optimise your own health? Are you up for the challenge?
