Whatever your age, there’s strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help you lead a healthier and even happier life.
We all know that exercise is important in our daily lives, but we may not know why or pretend to have no time to do sports activities on daily basis.
It is important to remember how our bodies had been designed. To make it easier I’d like to compare our structure with the design of sports car.
In the same way that a sports car is designed to go fast, we are designed to move. If the sports car is taken out once a week for a 3 mile round trip through a town centre then it would probably develop engine problems fairly quickly.
Exactly the same thing might happen to us. Over time people too develop problems if they sit down all day at a desk or in front of the TV and minimise the amount of exercise they do.
The benefits of exercise are numerous and these include healthy and brain functions.
Exercise improves both the strength of your muscles, bones and joints and the efficiency of your brain. Also when your cardiovascular system works better everything seems easier and you have more energy for the fun stuff in life.
Good news for sleep lovers. Active people tend to sleep better.
Physical activity makes you more tired so you’re more ready to sleep. Good quality sleep helps improve overall wellness and can reduce stress.
Above all, physical activities will lead to a better social life, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
As everything, the beginning it is the though part, but once you get started, will be hard to not see the benefits coming from it.
