The human body is designed to move and be active. Studies have shown, when looking at the longevity of people in various cultures, that those who live the longest life span-that have the best overall health- all participate in regular exercise. To maintain health, we need to break a sweat an average of three times per week, for a minimum of thirty minutes. Exercise keeps joints and muscles functioning properly, boosts immune function, and releases brain chemicals that create an inner sense of “well-being”, enhances cardiovascular and digestive function, and promotes mental clarity. With so many benefits, there is no reason to not put aside a little time to make exercise a “key” part of your regular routine.
