The whole idea of keeping fit is becoming trendy and funky nowadays, especially among young people. This is very positive development as it encourages young obese people to give it a shot. However, I do not believe that is sustainable way of encouraging young people to cultivate the habit of keeping fit and healthy. The best way to maintain the interest of people in fitness programs is when their health is put on the first place of the scale of preference.
Through education, people will understand why there is a need to maintain an active lifestyle and behavioral change in terms of their diets. That way their decisions and actions are not determined by peer pressure but by knowledge. And as they say “knowledge is power!”
In this article, we take a look at some of the main reasons why there is strong need to be active and be aware of what goes inside your system on a daily basis.
The first important reason why you need to exercise on a regular basis is to improve your general wellbeing. Research has shown that people who exercise on a daily basis are less likely to get sick. This is because exercising improves the immune system and boosts your metabolism. This will invariably help you save money on hospital bills because you will be fit and healthy all year round and there will be no need to visit a doctor for some of the more common and preventable diseases.
The second reason is that exercising helps prevent cardiovascular problems. Cardiovascular diseases account for millions of deaths all around the world every year. It is increasingly becoming one of the world's top killer diseases. Exercising will drastically reduce your risk of a heart attack or cardiac arrest by increasing the circulation of blood throughout your body. This will keep you alive so that you can take of your family and possibly enjoy the presence of your grandchildren.
The third reason to exercise is to improve on your level of endurance. In this current world, it is the survival of the fittest. Life throws at us so many challenges. Some will not make it under pressure because they lack durability. By maintaining the discipline of exercising every day, you increase your ability to survive hard times than people who do not exercise at all. You improve your mental alertness even at a very old age.
