The human body generally responds well to physical exercise and substantial improvements may be anticipated in heart and lung function, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and one’s ability to respond to stimuli. Some of the more noticeable change from exercise may include; increased bone strength, increased physical work capacity, increased joint range of motion or flexibility, improved sense of well being, increased muscular strength, improved glucose regulation, decreased blood pressure, and improved sleep patterns and levels of anxiety.
If it has been awhile since you have exercised ease into your exercise program by beginning with low intensity, low frequency activities and proceed slowly. While exercising if you experience any pains in joints, nausea, dizziness, breathlessness, tightness in the chest or persistent muscle soreness, contact your medical professional immediately. To help achieve your daily/weekly goals of exercise you should set aside a specific time of the day to do your exercising. Also remember to avoid any exercise that hurts and movements should be gentle and comfortable.
Looking to sneak exercise into your everyday activities? Take the stairs everywhere instead of the elevator. During your lunch break take a walk. Walk, cycle, jog, or skate to work, school, store, friend’s house or place of worship. Do all your housework at a fast pace, hand rake leaves and use a push lawn mower. When shopping park your car father away from the entrance, get on or off the bus several blocks away from destination. Exercise while watching TV and take your dog for a nightly nice long walk. These are just some ideas to get exercise into your daily activities.
Remember to stick with your exercising! The best exercise is one that you will actually do! Walking is considered one of the best choices because it is easy, safe and cheap! A brisk walk can burn as many calories as running and is less likely to cause injuries. Walking is an aerobic and weight-bearing exercise, so it is good for your heart and helps prevent osteoporosis.
