Getting up and Getting moving
Getting up and getting moving every morning is one of the smartest things you can do for your body.
Whether you're a walker, runner, jumper, skier, or dancer, you're strengthening both your mind and your body by adding exercise to your day-to-day routine. The advantages of regular exercise are endless, so get up and get moving today! Here are some of the health benefits you can expect when you get up and move around on a regular basis:
A healthy heart:
Studies show that a sedentary lifestyle, which includes staying sitting for extended periods of time, is linked to an increased risk of heart disease. The risk is even greater for people who rarely get up and move around. By getting up and taking small amounts of exercise throughout the day, you can keep your body in top shape, even if you're not in shape physically.
A more productive brain:
Studies have shown that people who are sedentary spend longer than necessary to do their daily activities. On the other hand, those who get up and walk around each day spend a lot more time working than those who sit all day long. Sitting all day is bad for your health because it causes unnecessary stress to your brain. However, doing some form of physical activity is good for your brain's fitness and performance. So whether you want to improve your mathematical skills, improve your listening abilities, or increase your leadership abilities, a little physical activity is always beneficial.
Better overall health:
People who exercise have higher energy levels and lower stress levels. This has positive health implications for your emotional, mental and physical well-being. In addition, staying active lowers your risk for several types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, bladder, and stomach cancer. Additionally, people who are more active are less likely to develop depression, dementia, and dementia degeneration. They are also less likely to develop heart disease and stroke.
A better mood:
Studies have shown that doing some form of exercise every day has positive effects on mood and mental health. For example, going for a run or jogging improves mood, but so does participation in sports and other activities. Likewise, taking a brisk walk or jogging provides the much-needed incentive to get up and get moving. As an incidental exercise, walking for just 10 minutes each day can significantly improve your mood. By staying active, it will become easier and more pleasant to live a happy and fulfilling life.
More regular exercise:
It has been proven that an hour of daily exercise burns twice as many calories as the same amount of exercise performed during a ten-minute workout period. In addition, walking or running is an ideal way to lose weight, boost your metabolism, and improve your cardiovascular health. As with most things, there is a tradeoff: While running is great for burning calories, it can be quite tiring. So it's best to plan your exercise sessions around your normal daily activity. However, if you must run or jog, take breaks between the two to allow your body to recuperate from the intensity of the workout.
More Sedentary lifestyles:
One of the biggest trends in the US is that people are staying sitting in front of their TVs, computers, and other non-physical activity for far too long. As a result, they are not getting as much physical activity as they should. Sitting at one of these devices for too long can reduce circulation and increase a person's risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and other health issues. Studies have also shown that people who sit too long tend to become emotionally and mentally ill. To avoid this, try to do some small amounts of physical activity, such as a few brisk thirty-minute walks each day. Also, take the stairs whenever possible, and park farther away from the building.
Getting up and getting moving every morning is one of the smartest things you can do for your body. It not only improves your mood, but it helps you to live a healthier life.
