Movement

Being active is the single most important thing to do for your health. It helps you control your appetite, mood, sleep and reduces the risk of major physical and emotional diseases.

Moving about, being agile and mobile is one of our main goals for partners and customers at Sproutt.

Why is it important to stay active?

It lifts your mood

relieves stress, anxiety, anger, and depression.

It keeps you fit and able

Without it, your body slows down and your muscle strength decreases.

It fights away doctors

Keeping active reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke, hence it may lower your medical expenses.

The bottom line, physical activity helps you live longer.

 
So, what should you do?

Making the most of movement

150 minutes of weekly moderate physical activity – walking, jogging, cycling or swimming for instance.
Also:
High-intensity workouts if you are time-constrained.
• Spend less time sitting.
• Keep active at least 5 hours a week.
• Kids should get at least an hour of aerobic activity a day.

How do we at Sproutt, assess if you are within the recommended health guidelines of physical activity?

When you fill out the QL assessment questionnaire, we ask you a series of questions about your daily level of activeness, types of activities, and work environment. We then gauge these with the recommended guidelines for fitness. These, along with your standing of emotional wellness, your nutritional intake, overall health, and preemptive measures allow us to rate you. Now we can both recommend healthier alternatives and match you with the right plan of life insurance.

Our goal is to help you lead a healthy lifestyle and get access to the best life insurance products at the best rates.
