What exactly is physical activity?
Physical activity is any bodily movement produced by our muscles that requires energy (e.g. doing house chores, walking to a bus stop and using the stairs instead of lift). “Physical activity” should not be mistaken with “exercise”, which is a subcategory of physical activity. Exercise is planned, structured and purposeful with the intention of acquiring fitness or health benefits (e.g. swimming, weight lifting and jogging).
