_DSC9156Want to feel healthier, have more get-up-and-go and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical movement are hard to ignore. The paybacks of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability.

Exercise controls weight

Exercise can help prevent excess weight burden and help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you lose calories. The more powerful the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside huge chunks of time for exercise to gain weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.

Exercise fights health conditions and sicknesses

Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which shrinks your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression and certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
