The Benefits of Regular Exercise

Animation Copyright © Milner-Fenwick
Today we live busy lives; however, most of our jobs don’t require much physical activity. The only running we do is to the next appointment or meeting.
And when we’re finally home and can take a breath, we relax. We play games, watch TV, or read. And over time, this physical inactivity can take a toll on us both physically and emotionally.
“Simple things were taxing. You know, walking up a flight of stairs and being winded. Not being able to comfortably bend over and pick something up. “
We all can be more active, but the question is: why should we? To get active and stay active, you need to be convinced of the benefits.
Regular physical activity can reduce your chance of diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. As you age, being more active can make it easier to get around, and even decrease the chance of falling. It‘s also a big factor in maintaining a healthy body weight. Being active can make us feel better, and help us manage depression and anxiety.
“I just think having an overall active lifestyle is great for wellness, overall wellness - mentally, physically, spiritually. I just think it will benefit, all the way through”
Here are some other reasons why people have decided to become more active:
“I weighed 331, and I was diagnosed with diabetes and I’m like, I didn’t want to live like that. I wanted to live a little longer.”
“I have nieces and nephews and when they were small - get down on the floor and play with them? No way. Who’s going to come and pick me up off the floor?”
“I wanted to be able to dance.”
What are your reasons to become more active? How will regular exercise benefit you?
