Studies show that more than 60 percent of American adults do not get enough physical activity to provide health benefits. More than 25 percent are not active at all–even in their leisure time. Regular physical activity can help you maintain a healthy body weight and reduce your risk of conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Exercise can help you:
- improve your muscle tone
- relieve stress
- improve your body image
- increase your energy and concentration levels
- protect your bones
- improve your circulation
- improve your digestive health
- have fun and be social
If you’re not interested in becoming a gym rat, rest assured that there are plenty of ways to stay fit with at-home workout routines and outdoor activities. When you enjoy what you’re doing, you’re more likely to stick with an exercise plan that’s right for you.
Remember, even 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day will help improve and maintain your health.
Health and happiness,
