May is National Physical Fitness and Sports month. People who life an active lifestyle benefit greatly from all the wonderful things exercise can provide us. Summer is coming and we all want to look good in our bathing suits, so get up and get moving! Don’t waste another moment in front of your TV when you could be exercising your body.
Being in good physical shape can benefit people of all ages. For children all the way through adolescence, working out can improve heart health and help build strong muscles and bones. Adults can gain advantage from lower risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and even certain types of cancer. Even people who are in the later years of their lives should be getting exercise, as it can improve cognitive function and lower the risk of falls. Getting physical activity into your daily routine also just makes you happier overall.
Even if you can’t get in a rigorous work out every day, there are things you can do to sneak a little burn into your routine. For instance, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or going for a walk with your family after dinner. You can even move your legs and feet and stretch while you’re at your desk, or take a 5-minute walk on your breaks at work. Making simple changes here and there will burn extra calories and get you back into good shape.
