“Exercise is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but for too long we’ve neglected to take our recommended dose. Our health is now suffering as a consequence.”

Research shows that physical activity can boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Aside from these obvious health benefits the team at OPAL regard exercise so highly as it provides an opportunity for you to reconnect with your local community by trying something new.

Your OPAL Adviser can help you find local activities and explore what services are available to you in East Dunbartonshire.
