The Mayo Clinic Staff mentioned a physical fitness program as one of the best things for health. Any basic fitness regimen scheduled daily, especially outside, can help with the reduction in the probability for ill health.
“…physical activity can reduce your risk of chronic disease, improve your balance and coordination, help you lose weight, and even boost your self-esteem. And you can reap these benefits regardless of your age, sex or physical ability,” the Mayo Clinic noted.
The United States Department of Health and Human Services made some recommendations, which the Mayo Clinic echoed in the article. Healthy adults should include decent amounts of aerobic and strength training exercises into these regimens.
- At least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or an equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous aerobic activity
- Strength training exercises of all the major muscle groups at least twice a week
These simple steps do not amount to much. They can benefit whole body health. The work one does earlier on in life to make this a routine can develop a healthy habit to improve health for the long-term.
Not only a potentially longer lifespan but a definite longer health span, the number of years but also the number of quality years of life.
You can look and feel better. A regular exercise regimen helps with the reduction in heart disease and various cancers, strengthens the bones and muscles, and can help with the control of weight.
Which, if you have not noticed, North Americans are beginning to climb in their weight categories.
The Mayo Clinic cautions, “But if you haven’t exercised for some time and you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor before starting a new fitness routine.”
Mayo Clinic staff also point to the fitness goals. What are they? How do you intend to develop them? What will you include? What things may be an off day? What will other ones be an on day? And so on.
Others things to bear in mind are the things that you prefer and the things that you do not prefer. Because if you continue to work out at specifics that you hate, then you may find these as barriers to the construction of a routine.
You can track your own personal progress and work to stay on the fitness regimen. It is important to remain on a fitness program. However, you do not need to stress yourself, so pace yourself, pick the good ones for you, and have fun why don’t ya!
