Our Bodies in Motion
The human body was created to move. Motion does not necessarily mean exercise or sports. Working in or out of the home has become, over the years, much more mechanical, so that women, nowadays, are less mobile. Physical exercise includes an array of activities which can be done alone, in groups, or as competitive or achievement-orientated activities. Physical activities need to fit personal inclination and the health of each of us. The chapter discusses fully the influence of movement and exercise on physical and mental wellbeing. It deals with general Israeli issues such as access to sport facilities and financial support (or lack of) of women’s sports by the government and local municipalities.
