I had such a great week. I feel so blessed to have been asked to speak able to about type 2 diabetes in so many different settings. I wanted to sit down today and write a article that has been on my mind this past week and that is about getting the exercise we need. So here it goes!!
It also improves the quality of life as well. I have seen allot as my husband works in a nursing home as a physical therapist and is the re-hab director. Far too many times he will get someone on the young side of life that did not take care of their body when they were young and they will die. It breaks my heart when this happens. Many time’s if people only got more exercise through out there life they would not have developed so many health problems.
I am a perfect example of what not taking care of yourself can do. Now being on the other side my goal is to help others and teach the importance of being good to yourself starting with the way you eat and exercising regularly.
- It decreases body fat and increases lean muscle
- It helps burn calories and aids in weight loss and weight control
- Increases strength of muscles and bones
- Reduces anxiety, depression and improves mood
- Creates more energy
- improves well-being through enhanced self -esteem
- Improves sleep patterns
There are many more benefits but just know if you start today you can start enjoying the pay off and that is a longer life and better health. 🙂
