THE POWER OF EXERCISE




1. Keep your heart healthy

Exercise is one of the best things that you can do to keep a healthy heart. It helps reduce the chance that you will develop coronary heart disease or have a stroke. Regular exercise can help reduce high blood pressure. Exercise also delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues which help your cardiovascular system to work much more efficiently,  boosting energy levels and increasing stamina.

 

2. Maintaining strong bones, muscles and joints

Regular exercise keeps your musculoskeletal system healthy and improves the function of your muscles keeping your bones strong and healthy. Maintaining this through life is really important helping prevent injury and, later in life,  falls and fractures.  Wight bearing exercise is especially important as you  age to help prevent osteoporosis.

 

3. Balance /Coordination/flexibility

Poor balance will often lead to falls, particularly as you age and your coordination is not so good.   Keeping active can  help  and doing exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright, including your legs and core can help your balance and your coordination, which in turn leads to better mobility. 

 

4. Weight loss

Exercise can help to prevent excess weight gain or help you to maintain weight loss. By taking exercise you burn more calories, the more intense the activity the more calories you will burn.  Maintaining a balanced diet alongside exercise is also important and help you create a healthy energy balance and can help maintain a healthy weight.  .

 

5. Stress

Do you need a mood lift, do you need to blow off steam after a very stressful day. Exercising can help. Physical activity stimulates brain chemicals and you have those feel-good chemicals, endorphins, to thank for the boost in mood that comes from a good workout leaving you feeling happier and more relaxed, boosting your wellbeing and help you unwind for the stress of everyday life.  

 

6.  Posture

Good posture is important, and one of the best ways to fix your posture is to exercise the muscles holding you back. Regularly exercising your abs, back, and other muscles can go a long way into fixing your posture, both sitting and standing.

 

7. Social interaction

Exercising in a class, or at a Gym can help greatly by meeting regularly. You can bond with new people over a shared interest. This, particularly in elderly people, can help you feel less isolated, by forging new friendships. In children it can help build self-esteem.

 

Exercise is good for your mind, body, and soul
