Studies show that being more active can make positive changes to so many areas in our lives, emotional, social, and even financial. Here are 4 ways getting active can improve your overall wellbeing.

1. You will feel better

Physical activity releases those feel-good hormones (endorphins) which can relieve depression and stress. Being active can prevent or improve some risk factors for cardiovascular disease, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

2. You’ll save on health expenses

It’s simple: being more active contributes to being healthier, which can reduce healthcare costs. Also, by doing something you enjoy, you won’t be as bored, meaning you may spend less on entertainment.

If you’re a Momentum Medical Scheme member and you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, you will be rewarded for looking after your health with a free, yearly health assessment and up to R3 000 per family per month back in medical savings

3. You will make money

As a Momentum Multiply member, the more points your earn, the better your status and the better your rewards. Earning Active Dayz™ by being physically active is one of the easiest ways to earn more points.

For example

A Multiply Premier member on Bronze status gets 2% in cashbacks when shopping at Dis-Chem, but a Multiply Premier member on Gold gets 6% in cashbacks, and up to 12% in cashbacks for a Multiply Premier member on Platinum.
