Physical Health Is Influenced by Different Social Circumstances
Being physically active is about more than making individuals healthy. Physical activity builds healthy communities, which has both short term and long term effects. Physical activity also functions as a space for social inclusion. However, there are social barriers that affect a person’s ability to be physical, with a lack of space, time or resources. As a result, health is affected by factors like income, migration, and education. More research is needed to understand how health and physical activity are influenced by social factors.
