As you get older allot of things begin to change and you have to work harder on keeping your health and vitality. making sure you have enough fiber and keeping your minerals and vitamins at a good level by eating healthier is only part of the picture. Most Americans are not active enough to keep their bodies healthy and that only leads to gaining weight, high blood pressure, clogging and hardening of the arteries among other health risks. You should also keep your mind exercised so to keep it functioning. As the old saying goes if you don’t use it you will loose it applies to the human body more than people know.
Allot of things get in the way of exercise, one is the lack of stamina and physical strength. Some people may not be able to exercise the 20 to 30 minutes suggested by most physicians. New research has revealed that you can exercise get that 20 to 30 minutes of exercise in 5 minute intervals throughout the day and achieve very much the same results. The way I look at it any amount of exercise is better than none. So try to eat healthier and exercise the most your able and as time goes on you will be able to exercise more as your body improves.
Just remember it took you years if not decades to get this out of shape and so it may take a while to improve your health. No results are instant and there is no easy way to loose weight or become healthier. It all takes effort and some times a bit more than most of us like. But if you put your mind to it there is no reason why you cant make a difference in your overall health.
