Get moving! Do you know that even a little exercise makes a difference? Even less-frequent exercise has noticeable health benefits. Since everyone is always busy, it is good to know that working out just once or twice a week will boost your health. It is beneficial to prevent the risk of death from chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, and all other causes.
Doing something is definitely better than doing nothing. Any amount of activity helped prevent chronic diseases by 40% compared to people who get no exercise at all. In addition, being physically active offers many benefits including helping to prevent dementia, depression, high blood pressure, unhealthy sleep patterns and diabetes. Some of these effects will not last long in the body if exercising is done more often. Even busy people will try to get in a few random exercise bursts on a weekday. Increases in daily activity will come from small changes made throughout the day such as walking or cycling instead of using the car or bus. Walking counts as exercise and gives a boost of energy for the rest of the day. Consider taking the stairs at work a few times or going for a walk around the block. Any activity you do is beneficial and gets you closer to your fitness goal. And if you rotate exercises or activities every so often, your injury risk will decrease.
Overall, being physically active will improve your brain health, help manage your weight, reduce the risk of diseases, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve your ability to do everyday activities. It will help people manage existing chronic conditions and disabilities and increase their chance of living longer. Even 10 minutes a day will make a difference!
