Answer:

Physical Activity: Is generally understood to be any bodily movement requiring the skeletal muscles that expends energy.

Sedentary: is defined as the amount of time per day spent sitting or lying down (with the exception of sleeping), engaged in non-active activities, such as watching television or playing electronic games, driving a vehicle, working at a computer, reading, etc.

Incidental: is unstructured activity accumulated throughout the course of the day. An example is walking instead of riding or catching public transport, and using the stairs instead of the lift at a shopping centre.

Inactivity: is defined as people undertaking ‘insufficient’ physical activity to achieve measurable health outcomes. It means not engaging in any regular physical activity beyond daily activities, or a lack of ‘moderate-intensity physical activity’.
