How to include a PHYSICAL EXERCISE PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans.
Want to feel better, have more energy, improve your quality of life, and even add years to your life? Just exercise. It’s true, 70 is the new 60… but only if you’re healthy. People who are physically active and at a healthy weight live about seven years longer than those who are not active and are obese. And the important part is that those extra years are generally healthier years! Staying active helps delay or prevent chronic illnesses and diseases associated with aging. So active adults maintain their quality of life and independence longer as they age. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. Everyone benefits from exercise, regardless of age, sex or physical ability.
It helps keep the doctor away. Stand up when you eat your apple a day! Too much sitting and other sedentary activities can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. One study showed that adults who watch more than 4 hours of television a day had an 80% higher risk of death from cardiovascular disease. An active lifestyle can add up to fewer medical expenses, interventions and medications later in life! Note: If you are under the care of a Physician, please check with them before starting any exercise regiment.
