Human beings are known to be creatures of habit. We brush our teeth daily, shower regularly, drive the same route day in and day out. But for most, consistency is lacking in one major category: exercise! Regardless of what you’ve heard, consistent exercise is the key to being thinner, healthier, and living a longer life. As you grow older, an active lifestyle is more important than ever. Regular exercise can help boost energy, maintain your independence, and manage symptoms of illness or pain. Exercise can even reverse some of the symptoms of aging. Finding activities that you enjoy and that become part of your daily routine is the key to a long and healthy life. The National Academy of Sciences recommends that everyone strive for a total of one hour per day of physical activity. That hour can be made up of several shorter bursts of activity done throughout the day. Most people know that consistent exercise helps to manage weight and keeps muscles strong. But did you know that strong muscles burn more calories? Muscle mass is metabolically active tissue. In other words, the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn even when you’re not working out. Studies show that resistance (strengthening) exercises also boost bone mass. And not only is exercise good for your body—it’s also good for your mind, mood, and memory. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain and helps it receive oxygen and nutrients. The better shape you’re in, the faster you fire brain waves that are responsible for quick thinking. The list of health benefits is impressive, and the requirements are relatively simple: just do it.
