In our world it’s hard to find time to exercise however it is an extremely important activity that everyone needs to participate in. Exercise can help you focus more, keeps your mind sharp, will keep you healthy, and can be a great way to relax. Exercise is great and even if you only do it for 30 minuets something is better then nothing.
Exercising will keep you in good physical health and mental health as well. Studies show that people who exercise are less likely to be depressed, and will more often then not perform above average in school, the office, on a work site, or anywhere else your travels may take you. Exercise will keep your mind sharp and healthy, and this will promote additional activity. When you feel tired after a day at the office or school don’t sit down and take a nap, get up and do something, run, walk, jump, play, whatever it is just do it, and you’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel.
Now obviously many people exercise because they want to lose weight, and it’s true, you will lose weight by being active, but you won’t shed 10 pounds in a few days. Regular exercise is something that is done constantly to maintain a good, healthy, and active lifestyle, not to shed numerous pounds in a shot amount of time, so keep that in mind. Don’t start a “regular” program of exercise if you don’t intend to stick with it for an extended period of time. Now of you do stick with a program then you will eventually see results in your physical appearance, and that is an amazing reward, but it takes time and patience.
In our modern age many people are concerned with their health, and they should be. Heart attacks are a leading cause of death in the United States, and exercise is one solution to that growing number. There are millions of studies that show, and prove the health benefits of a regular exercise program, and that coupled with a good, healthy diet can add a lot to your life. Plus if you exercise on a regular basis your physical activity and energy levels will inevitably increase adding yet another bonus to the prospect of exercise.
Exercise is also a great way to relax and unwind. Although some may see exercise as hard work, which it is, it can be very relaxing after a stressful day. Running and walking are great ways to relieve stress and to promote good health. Taking your Ipod, MP3 player, or good old CD player will just add to the fun of exercising. Also try and see if you can get some of your friends to come along. This will promote good health among your group, and it seems to always bee more fun to exercise in a group rather then by yourself.
So strap on a comfy pair of sneakers, grab some good music and call a few friends and get out there and get to work. Exercise is fun and easy, and really does not take up that much time, just 30 minuets a day is all you need in order to stay active, keep your mind and body healthy, and blow off some excess stress.
