Please take a minute to read this!
THIS COULD REVOLUTIONISE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT EXERCISE.
The very best thing you can do to increase your chance of a long life is to remain fit and healthy. Research has proven that someone who is physically active for 7 hours per week is 40% less likely to die early than someone who is active for less than 30 minutes per week. Remaining fit reduces your risk of suffering from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, gall bladder disease and many types of cancer. Maintaining a good level of fitness also reduces your risk of depression, mental health issues and it helps you to retain a healthy brain. But here’s another interesting fact – just as exercise can keep the rest of your body healthy, it can help slow or even reverse harmful age-related effects. Furthermore, when you start to look at the economic benefits, it’s self evident that a fit and healthy individual won’t spend as much time in hospital, at the doctors or spend as much money on health care products as the average unfit person.
So, whoever you are, whatever you do, irrespective of age or ability, staying fit essentially means keeping your body, mind and soul active and functioning at a high level. Improvement in your physical health will have a positive impact on every aspect of your life – and it will even spark those little feel good endorphins helping to you to de-stress.
It’s never too late to become physically active to achieve health benefits.
