Moderate physical activity and exercise is one of the best ways to stay fit and healthy. Children, adolescents and adults of all ages need to engage in a moderate amount of physical activity on a regular basis, not only to improve your overall well-being, but also to improve your quality of life. With the following points in mind, we can see why physical activity is said to be important for good health.
1. A healthy body can save us more money
A person's health consists of three components: physical, mental and emotional health. If a person is under a lot of emotional or mental stress over a long period of time, it is likely to lead to ulcers, heart disease, strokes, digestive problems and more. In addition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, treating chronic diseases (such as heart disease and diabetes) accounts for 86% of U.S. health care costs. While we can't prevent all diseases, we can reduce our risk of certain diseases by exercising to improve our fitness, which can save us a fortune in medical costs.
2. Can make you live longer
Numerous studies have shown that fit people live about seven years longer than obese people, and that regular physical activity increases life expectancy and reduces the risk of premature death.
3. Reduce the risk of injury
Regular and moderate physical exercise and physical activity increases muscle strength, bone density, flexibility and stability. A healthy body improves resistance to accidental injury and helps the body recover. Especially as we age, stronger muscles and better balance are needed to prevent accidents.
4. Help improve the quality of life
A moderate amount of physical activity can give us better physical ability to deal with life's challenges and improve our mood. Regular exercise can also give us a good sense of purpose, reduce drowsiness and depression, and enable us to enjoy our lives better and more passionately now.
The above summary is only a small part of the many benefits of physical exercise, in short, regular, moderate physical exercise has a great role in our health, as the old saying goes: people do not stop exercising because they get old, but because they stop exercising and get old. The more you exercise, the healthier you are; the healthier you are, the younger you are; the younger you are, the happier you are.
