Such an old Latin word which stood for “keep busy/practice“. Today, the word “exercise” is maybe related to the word “chore“, and I believe that today’s society is engulfed with more work and stress than ever and hence less time for exercise and fun.
I understand how hard it can be to fit exercise into a busy day, but luckily there is 7 days in one week and I really believe it is down to having some really good routines. A sad fact is that people usually don´t see the benefit of exercise, or anything that can benefit them in the long term for that matter. When we are busy and have our attention on so many other aspects of our life, it is easy to lose focus and do what to be the most comfortable and convenient, but what if I told you that with having exercise in your daily routine, you will actually have:
More energy, Sleep better, Think more Clearly, Control your Weight, Combat Health Conditions and Diseases, Improve Mood, Better Sex Life, and actually Feel Better About Yourself?
Are you ready to schedule exercise into your weekly routine, or you still don´t believe me? (Here is another blogger who have written about this topic in more detail).
Knowing is not enough, we must Apply
Willing is not enough, we must Do!
I was meant to say that the benefits mentioned above is all based on sound research. I encourage you to do some research if in doubt. A good tool to use for this is “google scholar“. Just write “benefit of exercise” on the search bar and see what pops up! Most articles are hard to read, and most articles only gives you the abstract unless you want to use money and buy them. If you should find access to a whole article I would recommend you to stay to the abstract which is usually found on the 1’st page, and also the results or discussion which is usually the last page before references. Enjoy!
Did you know that you lose grey matter (brain cells), by being sat still or stood still over a very long period of time repeatedly? In other words, a sedentary life style really can be detrimental to your health and well being. Additionally if you are suffering from low back pain the likelihood of reduced amount of grey matter is also increased, compared to healthy low backs!
Exercise will really do you good!
