The Lifelong Benefits of Exercise

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association states that people who are physically active and fit are at lower risk of dying from many various causes, but along with that, quality of life is just as important.

You also spend up to a third of your life sleeping. Did you know that exercise is also proven to be able to enhance sleep quality for some people that have difficulty sleeping? Exercise also contributes to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, type 2 diabetes, prevents weight gain and even depression.

Many of us claim not having enough time to exercise due to busy schedules at home and at work. The secret is actually very simple, exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous to produce results, it doesn’t have to take so much of your time or require you to allot extended periods into your schedule. Being physically active for about 10 minutes is already enough to help you achieve your fitness goals and reap lasting health benefits. All you need to do is to look online for quick and easy exercises which you can do on your desk while working.

It’s time to stop procrastinating, get up, move your body and get going. Here are the reasons why you need to keep on doing exercises regularly.

Weight Control

One of the many reasons why people exercise is to lose weight; you need to stay fit and strong and start getting rid of flubs around your body. You must have self-discipline as well when it comes to your food choices, no matter how hard you get into an exercise regimen it will never be as effective as when you can also control your appetite. Watch what you eat and make sure to include fresh fruits and vegetables in your meal plan. Ask help from a dietician or nutritionist to ensure that you get the right amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals over the amount of exercise you do.

Strong and Healthy Heart

It’s good to know that being physically active can reduce a person’s risk of cardiovascular diseases. Around the world, millions of people die each year due to heart problems that can actually be prevented with a healthy lifestyle. At least 150 minutes a week of modern intensity aerobic activity can help lower risk of cardiovascular diseases. The more active you are physically, the lesser your risk is in getting your heart into trouble.

Reduce Risk of Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome means that a person acquired too much fat around the waist area and can be accompanied by high blood pressure, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides and high blood sugar. Researchers found out that people who can manage to do at least 120 to 150 minutes of exercise weekly have lower chances of getting these conditions.

Reduce Risk of Some Cancers

Colon and breast cancer are two of the most common types of cancers that can affect a person who are not at all active physically. People who are physically active have a lower risk of colon and breast cancer than those who are not. Improve the quality of your life by improving you overall health and physical fitness. Overhaul your lifestyle if you must to achieve lasting health benefits of exercise.

Muscle and Bone Strengthening

Keep your bones and muscles strong by doing exercise on a regular basis. Aerobic exercises are helpful to strengthen the muscles, bones and joint in of your body and can slow the loss of bone density that comes with age.
