Exercise is important
Love it or hate it the truth is regular exercise and physical activity are important factors of healthy living. While adequate regular physical activity can help you maintain a healthy body weight, one aspect of being healthy, physical activity can promote health in a number of ways.
The Benefits of Exercise
Being sedentary, regardless of body weight, has been linked to increased risk of heart disease and some cancers so increasing the amount of time you spend moving over the course of a day can decrease this risk.
Regular physical activity and exercise can also increase feelings of well being, improve digestion, and improve sleep.
Getting started on a physical activity/exercise program is not always easy, while maintaining and established program can be problematic when your routine changes.
