Activity Can Be Golden

Posted by Chris Neumann on

Regardless of age, it’s never too late to add physical activity to your life. It can:

  • dramatically lower your risk of heart disease and stroke
  • help prevent and control risk factors such as:
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • type 2 diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • certain types of cancer
  • obesity
  • reduce stress levels
  • increase energy
  • improve sleep
  • improve digestion

You may see benefits within the 1st week of regular activity! For example, your blood pressure may start to come down, and you could start to feel more energetic and relaxed. After 3 months, you may experience better health, improved posture and balance, stronger muscles and bones, more confidence and a more positive outlook on life.

Inactivity, on the other hand, is linked to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and the many disabilities they can cause. In addition, lack of activity may increase your risk for:

  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • type 2 diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • certain types of cancer
  • obesity
  • falls and injuries
  • depression

Almost everyone can benefit from active living. If you have arthritis or osteoporosis, physical activity is extremely important to keep you mobile. If you’ve already had a heart attack, becoming active may help to prevent another one. And people over 65 with poor mobility who engage in muscle and bone strengthening activities can enhance their balance and prevent falls
