The benefits of regular exercise cannot be overstated. It is now generally accepted knowledge that even moderate physical activity performed regularly improves the health and well-being of all individuals. Despite this knowledge, studies show that more than 60% of American adults are not regularly active and that an astonishing 25% of adults are not active at all.
How Exercise Impacts Health
Lack of physical activity combined with poor diet is the second largest underlying cause of death in the United States. Studies show that even the most inactive people can gain significant health benefits if they spend 30 minutes or more exercising each day.
Daily physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke by strengthening the heart muscle, lowering blood pressure, raising the levels of good cholesterol, lowering bad cholesterol, improving blood flow, increasing the heart’s working capacity and efficiency.
By increasing muscle strength and endurance and improving flexibility and posture, regular exercise helps to prevent back pain and many injuries. Regular resistance training exercise promotes bone formation and may prevent many forms of bone loss associated with aging.
Regular physical activity, combined with healthy eating habits, is considered the most efficient and healthful way to control weight and overall bodily function. Regular exercise uses excess calories that otherwise would be stored as fat. By reducing body fat, physical activity helps prevent obesity and may help to prevent and control noninsulin-dependent diabetes. It also builds and preserves muscle mass, and improves the body’s ability to use and burn calories.
Studies on the psychological effects of exercise have found that regular physical activity can improve your mood and confidence. Researchers also have found that exercise is likely to reduce depression and anxiety and help you to better manage stress.
Anyone and everyone can and should exercise! You will see the benefits almost immediately, as you lose weight, lower your blood pressure, and feel better overall. Exercise will also have a positive impact on your lifestyle. It will open up opportunities for your career as well.
