This is a very special month to me as it is the thief heart disease that ended my beloved parent’s lives. Today I want to fight against this disease and I’m passionate about seeing sedentary or stressed individuals make the change to turn their lives around and live happier, healthier and more physically active lives. We were created to be vibrant and happy lives. Physical activity can be a lifesaver – literally. When you’re active 30 to 60 minutes a day, most days of the week, you can dramatically lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. Regular activity also helps prevent and control risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity.
Adding more activity to your daily life may also reduce stress levels, increase energy and improve sleep and digestion. Because physical activity makes you feel better about yourself, you’re more likely to make healthy lifestyle choices and to avoid bad ones such as smoking, overeating or drinking too much alcohol.
Benefits may begin within the first week of regular activity. For example, your blood pressure may start to come down, and you could feel more energetic and relaxed. After three months you may experience better health, improved posture and balance, stronger muscles and bones, more confidence and a more positive outlook on life. Before starting a physical activity program, it’s best to speak to your healthcare provider first to discuss what is right for you.
