Health is wealth. When one loses wealth it can be earned during a period of time but when one loses his health, he almost loses everything. People work hard the whole day and night without taking care of themselves to thrive in the mere future. They do not understand that if they do not take care of themselves now, there will be no future tomorrow. It is not wrong to work hard to prosper in life; one has to give equal importance to their health.
One has to exercise regularly to keep oneself healthy. It is better to spend some time to do some exercise each day. Even if one does not get time to do exercise, one can adopt healthy habits which can help them in doing a bit of exercise.
Our ancestors were healthy compared to us. This is because each work they did, involved certain hardship. The technology had not improved by that time and they did not have machines to do all their work. There was no transport available at that time and they had to walk their whole way even if the travel involved miles. They did not have all the cozy items like washing machines, dishwashers, mixer grinders, bikes, cars, and trams. They had to do all the chores by themselves like washing clothes and vessels etc. They did not even have junk food then. So, they ate healthy, lived healthily and they were able to stay healthy even in their 80’s and 90’s without any health issues.
Today, it is very rare to find people without any health issues. This is because people never exercise and they start feeling to be in their 90’s even at a younger age. If one likes to look young, feel young and to stay young throughout life, the only way is to keep one healthy by doing exercise. Even if one does not spend the separate time to do their exercise, one can follow the below ways to include exercise in their daily routine.
- Instead of using the car to drive a short distance, one can walk through the way. Walking is the best exercise.
- Instead of sitting comfortably in your car to get to the shop, one can also do cycling which is also good for health.
- Instead of using the elevators and escalators, try to climb the stairs all by yourself.
These can contribute in a way for exercise and healthy living.
Sitting idle just by watching TV or playing on the computer and tablet will make a man lazy. When people start enjoying the laziness, their whole body and the muscles will get used to it. The bone and muscles will get weakened. So, when they try to move their muscles and bones occasionally to do work, it will be a big burden for the bones and muscles and it will start aching. This is the reason why one needs to exercise regularly.
It is better to have the habit of exercising until one is able to do it. Many people, when they cross their sixties, blame their age and stop exercising. But that is not the right thing to do. Elderly people must exercise regularly as it makes the bone and muscles active always. Regular exercise may make them brisk and make them forget about aging.
Laziness is what drags everyone to skip his or her exercise. When one starts exercising, they tend to be brisk throughout the day and the day seems to move on quickly. It is good to start exercising even from childhood to make it as a habit throughout their life.
Age is not a limit for exercising. There are many exercises that can be done by people of different ages. Kids are normally active by themselves; just by letting them play whenever they feel like is good enough. Teenagers can do some cycling and if they have more energy and inclination they can start visiting the gym. For young adults, it is important to hit the gym or include some or the other physical activity in their day to day life and this has to continue for as long as it is possible into their adulthood until becoming senior citizens. Whoever is physically active can live that much longer and healthy.
