This is not an easy question to answer in just a few lines but I will try 🙂
The bottom line is that our amazing bodies are designed to move! Unfortunately over the last few decades we have become more and more static in our home and work environment. I don’t want to demonize computers but on this occasion its hard to remain diplomatic! So many of us spend hour after hour in front of a PC or Laptop during our working days, weeks, months and years. After work many of us drive home and sit in a KL traffic jam on the way and once arriving home collapse in a heap on the sofa and watch TV. What do all these activities have in common? Static Load which over time will result in an overuse injury and even pain. Movement is key to avoiding this scenario.
Exercise is also an essential component of keeping blood pressure down and your heart and blood vessels healthy.
Exercise can also be used as part of a nutritional plan to improve body image and composition.
Exercise is easy and hopefully fun way to bring movement back to your body and your life. Exercise doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating – it can be matched to your level and expectations.
As well as being great for the body, exercise is also great therapy for the mind. The old adage “healthy body, healthy mind” contains a whole lot of truth. Exercise has been shown to improve memory, reasoning and even emotional and mental well-being.
Long story short, how about slipping on those trainers and going for a run, cycle or swim (advisable without trainers) today? Your body and your mind will thank you! 🙂
