Why is exercise important?
For most people, taking or indulging in exercise tends to be a reactive thing.
That is, there has to be something that happens in their life that forces them
to re-assess what they are doing. Something happens that makes them
realize that they need to exercise more as a way of changing things that are
going wrong in their life.
For instance, many people come to a point in their life where they finally
acknowledge what they have, in reality, known for a long time, that they are
overweight or obese. Perhaps more impo rtantly, having finally accepted that
their weight truly does represent a prob lem, they actually make a conscious
decision to do something about it. So, th ey go on a weight loss diet of some
description and, for most people, taking exercise is part of the weight loss
The saddest part is that, if such over weight or obese people had regulated
their calorie intake and taken regular exercise beforehand, they would never
have got to be in the state that necessitates such drastic action.
Other people might decide to begin exerci sing in an effort to slow down the
aging process, often at a point in th eir lives where they finally understand
that the arrival of the grim reaper is a lot nearer than they previously
This is a good thing, but it is also a classic case of ‘better late than never’.
The fact is that if people who take up exercise late in life had only done so
twenty or thirty years earlier, their ef forts to delay the inevitable would have
been more effective.
There lies the point about exercise that many people ignore. Exercise should
not be something that is done reactively , at a point where it has to be done
in an attempt to reverse someth ing that has already happened.
Exercise should be viewed as a proact ive step that everyone can indulge in
as one of the best preventative measures that they can take.
Increased physical activity will incr ease your heart rate as well as
strengthening all of the muscles of your body. The heart is after all only a
muscle and all muscles get stronger the more often they are worked.
This resultant increase in heart activi ty will automatically speed up the blood
circulation throughout your body, which will in turn deliver increased oxygen
and nutrients to all your organs.
Regular exercise helps to increase the capacity of your lungs to absorb and
utilize oxygen, is effective at reducing body fat, and lowers the levels of
sugars and ‘bad’ cholesterol in the blood.
