New Active Lives data shows people who are regularly active enjoy better mental wellbeing
Sport Englands latest research reveals that active people are happier and more satisfied with their lives - and are less likely to experience anxiety.
The report, which builds on Active Lives Adult Survey data published in October, also shows that people who do physical activity are likely to feel more able to achieve their goals, and have more trust in their local community.

In this latest release, Sport England focus on three outcomes at the heart of their strategy:
•Mental wellbeing - life satisfaction, happiness, feeling worthwhile and anxiety
•Individual development - achieving goals
•Social and community development - how a person feels about their local community
It's the first time they've been able to examine how physical activity impacts on each of these outcomes. There's also fresh insight on how volunteering benefits mental health.
