Physical Activity - your right to good health
If you want to enjoy a lifetime of well-being, exercise is a
key ingredient. But don’t worry... we’re not suggesting
running a marathon or trekking through the mountains.
Moderation is best when it comes to working out, so find
something you enjoy and stick with it.
THINK LONG TERM
Whatever age you are, moderate
exercise can only increase your
physical well-being. It builds and
strengthens muscles, improves
skeletal density (helping to keep
osteoporosis at bay), gets your heart
pumping and oxygenates the body,
helps reduce plaque buildup in
arteries, uses up stored fat, reduces
body weight and many more incredible
benefits. Your commitment to an
active lifestyle is the best way to avoid
a diminished quality of life as you
grow older. On top of all this, exercise
is fun. You can meet new people,
discover talents you never knew you
had and smile while doing it!
The most difficult part of beginning an
exercise routine is getting started!
Once you’ve found an exercise that’s
comfortable and fun for you, it will be
easy to follow a routine and make it a
regular part of your life. If you have
never exercised or it’s been years
since you laced up your running
shoes, it’s recommended that you
consult your doctor to determine what
type of fitness routine will benefit you
most based on your age, weight and
current health. Once you have that
figured out, it’s time to get moving.
Ease into an exercise program,
especially if you have been inactive.
Start with short periods of about five
to 10 minutes twice a week. Then
build up slowly by adding no more
than a few minutes each week. When
you feel ready to move on, increase
your workouts to 15 to 30 minutes,
three or four times a week.
Whether you decide to join a health
club and take up weight training,
try a yoga class or just go for a walk
in the park, regular exercise can
help you stay young and age young.
