Exercise and You

Excerpt from the Introduction: Benefits of Exercise

The benefit of exercise is great for you body and mind. Many people think of all the things that exercise helps with but they never consider that one of the benefits of exercise is actually a positive thing for the mind. Exercise should not be taken lightly; by exercising you can increase your own lifespan dramatically. A person that is overweight will tend to die before a person that is at the right weight for their age.

The Mind - One of the biggest benefit of exercise is of the mind. A person can sink into a deep depression when they begin to gain weight or just stop exercising. However, the moment they begin exercising it does something to the mind, gives them a bit of a boost of self-confidence. One of the worse seasons for the human body is winter, this is because many of us tend to stay indoors where it is warm and sit around. This not only lets us think of all the things we could be doing but lets in our inner demons. If we were out more and exercising we wouldn't think about these type of things. By exercising we are doing something healthy, probably walking around with a smile on our face and actually increasing the oxygen in our blood which keeps us active.

Staying healthy - Staying healthy is a big benefit of exercise. You are actually helping your bones, joints and muscles when you exercise. By exercising regularly and eating healthy you will also be able to reduce the risk of Osteoporosis, which is when the bone weakens and break easily as you grow older.

Lose weight - One main benefit of exercise for most people is the fact you can lose weight. This is great for those that are overweight but you should always ask your doctor before trying any exercise if you haven't already been doing it.

Increases Life - Possibly the most important benefit of exercise that I can think of, is the fact that it can reduce the risk of heart disease and premature death. What person wouldn't want to exercise if they knew that it would let them live longer? If you already know that exercise helps your chances than why does it take a life-altering experience before most people decide that it is time to exercise? Many people tend to steer away from exercise because they just don't want to do it or they never have any time. Exercise doesn't have to take time; in fact you can actually incorporate it into your daily life. You don't have to go to the gym to do it, that's one thing; many people think they have to do to stay healthy.

Here are three things you can do to stay healthy and get the benefits of exercise:

  1. Walk in Place - This can be done at work or at home, when ever have to wait in an elevator on your way to work or coming home. Walk in place and turn waiting time into get healthy time!
  2. Breathing exercises - This is something that can be done just about anywhere, sitting in a car, at your desk or at home. Not only is this a great way to let out your bad air but also it is a great way of calming the nerves while sitting in traffic.
  3. Sit-Ups - Sit ups are something we all know how to do and you don't need any equipment to do them. Simply lay on the floor in your home and do a couple sets and the great thing is it doesn't take that much of your time. You just have to will yourself to the floor, this is one thing you can do while waiting for dinner to come out of the oven or while waiting or your favorite movie to come on.

As you can see, exercise can be done many ways from the comforts of your own home or anywhere. You just have decide that it is something you want and stick with it. Stay healthy and live longer…exercise today.
