Fitness - Mantra To Live Long

Aug 17, 2007
Demanding careers, raising a family coupled with pressures of daily life is daunting task for man and woman alike. Exercising or daily workout of 30 minute is the last thing on the mind, though we find time to watch TV or hang out with friends. We can come up with hordes of reason for not hitting the gym.

Being fit should be a part and priority in everyone's life. Being physically fit helps you to live a longer life. It means more than looking your best on the beach and finishing first in the marathon. By keeping yourself physically fit, your body learns to deal with the stress of daily life. Incorporate going to the gym as a daily habit like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Devote good 30 minutes to an hour for exercises or any other kind of workout for making you feel fit and look good.

Daily workout or an hour of exercise helps to relieve stress, depression anxiety, increase one's ability to concentrate, think faster and become sharper, helps reduce blood pressure, reduces the risk of life threatening diseases, increases flexibility to maintain muscular tension and tones muscles to build and maintain bones.

If you decide to shove off going to gym, you will miss out on the benefits mentioned above and much more. 30 minutes to an hour of physical fitness is major health investment.

If this is your first step in the fitness world, get in touch with gyms or personal trainers to see which, what fitness plan suits you the best. You will also come across adverts with promises of keeping you in the best of shape. Learn to differentiate between the real and fake.

After you decide on your fitness plan, you have to start working on the same to stay in shape and keep fit. Don't go overboard on the first day as you might feel very exhausted or burned out. To reach your ideal level of fitness, be sincere, consistent and stick with the program.

Mornings are the best time for doing workouts. Get up an hour earlier and hit the gym. After an hour at the gym you will feel fresh all day long. If you put off doing your workouts in the morning, you are more likely to put if off later due to plain laziness or tiredness from working all day long.

Another way to enjoy your self being physically fit is to undertake some physical activities such walks, hiking, mountain biking, playing golf, etc, with your spouse, kids or friends.
