Let us all start now and don't wait until we have no choice:
Find an exercise routine that works for you - And make it work.
People who take regular exercise could reduce their risk of developing around two dozen physical and mental health conditions -- including some cancers and dementia -- and slow down how quickly their body deteriorates as they age.
Regular moderate to intense physical activity is associated with decreased risk of coronary heart disease and ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke.
A growing body of evidence suggests that increasing physical activity can also reduce the risk of certain types of cancers, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, depression, obesity and high blood pressure.
Research has found that walking or cycling for at least an half-an-hour a day is associated with a reduction in cancer and that when this is increased to an hour cancer incidence falls by 16 per cent.
Research has also shown a strong relationship between increased physical activity and reduced colon cancer in both sexes. And men who are more active at work -- not just sitting at a desk -- have lower rates of prostate cancer.
Other cancer studies show that physical activity after diagnosis can aid recovery and improve outcomes.
Studies have also shown that men who are physically active are less likely to experience erection problems.
There is growing evidence that physical activity could decrease the risk of dementia in the elderly.
Healthy adults aged between 18 and 65 should aim for 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week, such as 30 minutes of brisk walking, five days a week. And people who undertake more vigorous intensity exercise, such as jogging, should aim for 20 minutes three days a week.
Healthy adults should aim for two strength-training sessions a week that work with the body's major muscle groups.
Older people can benefit from exercise that helps to maintain their balance and flexibility.
People who are physically active should continue to exercise even when they become middle aged or elderly and those who aren't should increase their physical activity.
This is our Motto.........Believing in total wellness & incorporating Jesus in everything we do. Being reminded that with Christ all things are possible:
