Tired of housework? What if I tell you it may help prevent cancer? Research suggests that vacuuming, dusting, and doing laundry can reduce your risk of uterine cancer by 34%.
Next time you vacuum those floors or remove the dust that seems to accumulate, hang up clothes etc. think positive: “Hey, I am getting my exercise which helps keep me healthy!”
Exercise along with a nutritious diet helps reap the benefits of a fit body. You may groan at the thought, but the benefit gives you the fortitude to fight illness. Often patients can forego treatments or procedures because they are fit.
Keeping moving is a motivator to help with everyday problems of pain or illness. Research suggests you can gain back much of the strength, balance, flexibility and coordination you had when you were much younger even if you are over 90 years of age, if you exercise.
Exercise boosts your endurance and gives you new energy. If you often feel exhausted, lack of exercise could be a factor. Think about it. When you don't exercise your muscles and your other body parts, they aren't as well conditioned to handle physical demands. That leads you to wear out more quickly. It's called "sedentary inertia.”
Exercise may be the answer if you stay with it. The extra action will make you more tired because it puts new demands on your body, but over time your body will grow stronger and get used to this new level of activity. You could suddenly realize you have more energy than you used to and lots more stamina. You will sleep better too.
Seniors are often surprised and thrilled at the amount of energy they develop after walking on the treadmill. It gets to be a habit to look forward to every day.
The extra zip and endurance will help you get more out of your day. It could give you the ability to keep pace with your grandkids and you know how busy they can be. Keeping up with children can be hard, but not if you have kept your muscles and mind in good shape.
Fitness is like a weapon against aging and enables you to join the crowd rather than watching them.
Walking 45 minutes, three times a week will help you cut your heart risk in half.
Forty minutes of moderate exercise each week reduces your odds of Type 2 Diabetes by 50%.
Exercise may be as effective as medication at increasing good cholesterol levels and reducing the bad. Healthier arteries lower blood pressures and lessen risk of stroke or heart problems. Regular physical activity helps people already suffering their ailments plus depression, osteoporoces or excess weight.
We are the problem, but we can also be the solution!
