Exercising has great benefits to the body. It can affect positively body and mind; improve our physical, physiological and psychological condition.
Research show that people who are in the age of forty-five and older experience improvements with their physical, emotional and mental health because of proper exercise. It is a fact that exercise can benefit the body in many ways when done moderately, reasonably, persistently and regularly.
Exercise can also help burn fat by increasing the metabolic rate of the body. For many people exercise sounds like a boring exhaustive routine they have to perform to stay healthy and lose weight. However this is far from being true.
There are many different types of exercises to choose from for all the different tastes. Also exercise shouldn’t be exhaustive to be effective.
You can choose aerobics exercise, swimming, jogging, walking. For some people dance is the best way to exercise. Just putting on your favorite music and dancing actively for 10-15 minutes daily might be enough to satisfy your daily needs for an aerobic exercise. You can also try an African dance. It is very dynamic and very often there is a live percussion. It is a very powerful experience that affects positively body and mind alike. Carrying equal weight in both hands when you go shopping or doing work around the house might satisfy the weight training requirements for the day.
For stretching you can choose regular stretching classes or yoga. Yoga provides with additional weight loss and health benefits. You can also do stretching while doing housework. Just make sure you stretch equally on both sides.
Exercising is not hard if you choose the right activity, one that you enjoy and if you know how to fit it into your busy daily schedule.
