This paper presents the need for healthcare professionals in general and nurses in particular, to become aware of the benefits that performing some sort of regular mild physical exercise throughout their lives represents on their overall physical status as well as their psychological status and wellbeing; and of the contribution that exercise has in the prevention of certain diseases. The aim of the paper is also to encourage nurses not to forget this therapeutic option when programming the activities of patients under their care (mainly in primary care), same as with the diet or the recommendations to quit smoking.
It would be convenient to establish objectives with the person at short, medium and long term to evaluate the subsequent results. If the outcome is positive, it would help motivate the individual to continue on this sort of treatment.
