The Way To Wellness Starting A Healthy Lifestyle

How many times were plans made to go to a gym? Of course when the time came there were excuses for not going. "I do not feel like driving, I got up too late; it looks like rain or tomorrow is a better day." For an exercise program to be effective an individual must not only be self-motivated but stick for the duration.

Sometimes there is a bit of a problem getting started, but it does not mean the ball should be dropped. Staying active and eating right is critical for long term health and wellness. If the gym is out, walk in your neighborhood.

It is important to increase your level of exercise because it translates into burning fat more effectively for energy. Proper eating habits and exercise also helps to convert food into energy.

Exercise is a form of moving. It includes aerobic, walking, Tai Chi, jogging, biking, and tennis to name a few. These are included also stretching, breathing deeply, and relaxing at the end of exercising.

To get motivated and achieve your goal pick a form that can be incorporated into your daily activities. Exercise is an essential component to health and vitality. A person that exercises presents a higher quality of life.

Usually your health will determine the frequency and length of your exercise. If a person is healthy start with 10 to 15 minutes and move up 30 to 45 minutes. But your doctor can best determine the length and time.

The true purpose of exercise is to send a repetitive message to the body asking for improvement in metabolism, and overall fitness and health. When exercising, the body responds by upgrading its capabilities to burn fat throughout the day. Exercise does not have to be intense to work, but it should be consistent.

Once you make the commitment to exercise, be sure to change your diet and eating habits. Try eating smaller meals and make sure each meal is balanced. Take a multi-vitamin each day to ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Limit your fat intake and drink eight glasses of water a day.

Exercise can be therapeutic for the body as well:
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis-swimming is a good option
  • Diabetes-exercise increases insulin activity
  • Heart Disease-exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Stress-exercise to lessen the effects on the body
  • Osteoporosis-bone cells are stimulated by weight-bearing exercise
These are some of the benefits of exercise. There are minimum side effects; when starting there will be some soreness. But after a few weeks this will disappear.

As always check with your healthcare professional before starting an exercise program.
