Life. Be in it.

Life. Be in it. is pleased to recognise and support Robert Palmer’s talents and expertise as demonstrated in the new ‘Live More Of Your Life’ website.

Fifty years have flown since Life. Be in it. issued its clarion call across the nation to ‘Be More Active’ and ‘Live More Of Your Life.’ We are proud to confirm that Australia has achieved substantial progress towards those two critical objectives — holding a five-year lead on other Western nations.

Meet Robert

Robert founded The Education Professionals Pty. Ltd. so that he could provide a long-term commitment to Life. Be in it. philosophies and values while assisting quality organisations to take a more active role in encouraging Australian communities and in turn to be more active.

Robert’s initiatives are built on a solid educational foundation that begins in early childhood, continues through the teenage years, and supports our parents and grandparents to become life-long learners. They focus on ‘building better bodies’ while also ‘building better brains’ through the practical applications of proven neuro-scientific research.

The Importance of Physical Activity

It is estimated that between 20% and 25% of children and adolescents are now overweight or obese because the number of overweight and obese Australian children and adolescents has doubled during the past 15 years.

Most people today know that physical activity is a key component to good health, however, only a small minority accept that exercise is for everybody and not just for the elite.

But, the big but, is that the internet could be the new health hazard if it leads to a retreat from physical activity — or encourages others to become ‘couch potatoes’ like Norm — being captured by screenshots that lead us to be less mentally active and less physically engaged.

The Dangers of an Unhealthy Lifestyle

We urgently need to create a widespread awareness that ‘Sitting is a Health Hazard.’ If we do not, the rate of growth in health costs is predicted to reach twenty billion dollars annually.

In a recent report, the OECD noted that the ‘health shift’ of ageing populations and people living longer with multiple chronic and disabling conditions had ‘important implications for how care is best organised and provided; where new treatment innovations can be expected; and future cost pressures imposed on governments’.

The scope and severity of the chronic disease problem have not escaped the public’s attention. More than two-thirds of all adults believe that the health care system should place more emphasis on chronic disease preventative care, and more than 4 out of 5 of those surveyed favour public funding for such prevention programs.

Obesity has emerged as a priority in chronic disease prevention and has been linked to the increased risks for heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, arthritis-related disability, and some cancers.
