Technological advancement has made our life too comfortable and convenient. You travel by car, sit at the comfortable desk at office in the automatically temperature controlled environment. You have instant food to satiate your taste buds. So in a way everything is within your reach and you feel life is great. But what you might not be aware of is that these very comforts are dragging you towards a sedentary lifestyle.
Today we hardly do any manual work and exercise and that’s the reason we suffer from health related problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. But even a small increase in your daily level of physical activity can dramatically improve your health. A little bit of regular exercise can help to burn up the calories which can help you to lost weight.
Regular exercise helps you combat anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. Often chemicals do get build up in our bodies which block our systems and make us feel miserable. But exercise helps our bodies to flush these excess chemicals out.
Our musculoskeletal and immune systems also benefit hugely from regular exercise. This is especially beneficial for older people. Regular physical activity keeps their muscles, joints, and bones strong. It also improves their immune systems, makes their coordination better and defends against many of the illnesses and injuries that might affect us later in life.
