Lower your cancer risk, get a stronger heart, have more mental clarity, sleep better and be happier...how?
Move your body!
Getting your heart pumping increases your blood flow, delivering more oxygen to your brain.
According to Prevention Magazine, healthy adults who did aerobic activity consistently had 25% less musculoskeletal pain than couch potatoes.
The magazine also reports in the February 2009 issue that people who participate in vigorous physical activity just once or twice a week take about half the sick time of those who are sedentary.
And, a good workout practically ensures a better body image. Prevention reports that women ages 42 to 58 felt more attractive after 4 months of walking or yoga even if they didn't lose weight.
