Wellness Wednesday: Exercise – A Booster for Life

Exercise is very different for all of us but plays a big impact in all areas of life. See a few of those benefits below.\

  • Exercise lowers major health risks. Regular exercise has the power to lower your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. It also helps fight some cancers and delay the potential onset of osteoporosis and dementia.
  • Exercise supports mental health. Feeling better physically through regular exercise helps improve your outlook and counter stress, anxiety and depression. It promotes better sleep and offers a positive way to share time with family and friends.
  • Exercise keeps you strong and mobile. It helps maintain muscles, bones and joint flexibility, allowing you to stay active as you age, especially if you develop arthritis.
  • Exercise extends life. The CDC reveals that people who are physically active for about  seven hours a week have a 40% lower risk of dying early than those who are active for fewer than 30 minutes a week.

Please refer to the CDC for more information.
