Regular exercise plays a crucial role in helping you maintain a healthy body. Keeping a healthy fit body can delay and prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes and even cancer! It is important that you participate in 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least 5 times a week.
It doesn’t matter what type of physical activity you do, just as long as you are doing it. Try swimming, walking, bicycling, jogging, dancing, mowing the lawn, whatever you enjoy the most. Light weight training and stretching can also strengthen your overall body and improve your fitness. You don’t need to have a structured daily exercise routine, mix it up, add some variety to your workouts and you will enjoy them more.
The key is to make your workouts fun so that you stay motivated and actually look forward to exercising. This will help keep you dedicated to being fit, not just because you know what you are doing is great for your health, but because you really enjoy what you are doing. Before you know it, you will go out of your way to participate in sports and physical activity and you will not be able to imagine going back to the sedentary lifestyle you lived before, because you will feel so good, and you will have more energy and feel stronger then you have in years!
Regular exercise is more than just a change in your daily routine; it’s a change in your overall lifestyle and quality of living.
