Can You Really Find A Healthy Life Style Without All The Work?

May 20, 2008
Being healthy, in shape, and taking care for your own body combines to equal fitness. Which is something wonderful that people can do to enhance their lives - commit to fitness!

The Bible describes our body as being our temple, which is why it is so important to maintain it. Staying fit is a noble act.

This will take a lot of effort and action, but there will be an excellent payoff. Only those who work at it are lucky enough to have a life full of peace and happiness.

Fitness exercise is vital to any routine. Fitness exercise helps fight many diseases, some of which are serious enough to kill, like heart disease.

Unfortunately, greater numbers of people tend to pay no attention to this type of activity. This is why so many people are coming down with different ailments. So of course the hospital business is booming, even if it's on the backs of these patients.

In fact, high school students don't generally follow the recommended activities for fitness and health by the Council of the President on Physical Fitness and the Surgeon General nowadays. This amounts to 33% of the United States population.

More often than not, their disregard to health continues into their adulthood. Since more and more people are not staying fit, there will be even more people with weakened resistance, thus more diseases.

As discovered by the National Institute on Aging, a mere 58 % of Americans are taking part in a lifetime fitness program. More often than not, they put the program last, squeezing it into their free time. Of these people, there are only 26 % regularly participating in the fitness program, and even then it is only an average of three times per week.

Commitment to a lifetime of exercise is paramount, but sadly, far too many people often neglect it. People ignore the fact that their lives' could be greatly enhanced.

Heart disease, stroke, injuries from accidents and mishaps, cancer, and chronic lower respiratory illnesses are common causes of deaths in the U.S., as you may be aware. The CDC reported these as the five most common causes of deaths each year.

What's worse is that all these causes of death could be avoided all together. People should pay attention to the importance of fitness and exercise and reap the benefits of a lifetime commitment to being fit. Deaths occurring due to accidents are not included.

Physical exercise is not the only part making up a lifetime fitness program, but this program includes a diet that needs to be watched. Anyone that commits to physical fitness will defiantly live a longer healthier life. Of course, they will be happier overall as well. Life is more enjoyable and relaxing when you have a healthy mind and a healthy body.

The choice is yours - do you prefer to commit to a lifetime of fitness to live a healthy, pro-longed life, or would you rather suffer the consequences of not taking care of yourself?
