040819 The benefits of physical activity

Being active and INVOLVED with life keeps you alive and fit enough to enjoy being alive. Getting older does not make us deteriorate; it is doing nothing that is responsible most of the time. The body constantly adapts to the conditions imposed on it. If nothing challenges it then it quickly decays.
The short point is you must exercise to derive the benefits of maintaining an active life style. So get moving.

040819 The benefits of physical activity

  • Energy increases and you will feel like doing more with your time.
  • The digestive and elimination processes are improved.
  1. Intellectual capacity and productivity improve by awakening the intellectual power within.
  • Your sleep is more complete because you rest more efficiently.
  • You will lose excess fat and gain more lean muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat so your weight may actually increase…but in a good way. The two cells ARE NOT interchangeable; a fat cell does not become a muscle cell if you stop exercising!
  • Stronger bones result from the increased mineralization brought on by the exercise, which is dependent upon the mode of exercise. Spinal and long bone loading exercises are the ticket here.
  • Depression may be controlled and stress may be decreased due to a greater release of the body’s natural painkillers, the endorphins, into the blood stream brought.
  1. Added protection from the dangers of heart disease, 30-40 minutes daily in the 40-70 heart rate range, 5-7 days a week has been shown to be beneficial.

Being active and INVOLVED with life keeps you alive and fit enough to enjoy being alive. Getting older does not make us deteriorate; it is doing nothing that is responsible most of the time. The body constantly adapts to the conditions imposed on it. If nothing challenges it then it quickly decays.
