"Exercise regularly and stay fit"
Do you remember this word? Or left it there in the school ground? Yes most of us have left it there only. When this word comes we just get so much disturbed that we just want to run away. Well people are becoming conscious about their health these days and so I am writing on this topic.
It is really very important for us to indulge in an exercise routine if we want to live a healthy and long life. Do you remember the days of your PT period and the morning school assembly? So strong we were. We had such a sound sleep. Don’t you miss your that state of mind and body? It was all because of the regular exercise routine we had at that time.
Exercise as per the dictionary means indulging in any physical activity that helps in keeping oneself fit. That should not be so difficult a task to take up. Exercise can be taken up in any form whether running, jogging or physical workout. Remember after a bad day at school you would play videogame back at home and release all your tension and aggression over there. But videogame in return stresses our eyes. Exercise provides a platform for releasing our vent up worries and paves way towards ‘feeling good’ the whole day. There is a stress hormone cortisol which gets burnt away through exercise and while other happy chemicals like dopamine and serotonin are released in the brain during exercise. Exercise also helps to cope up with the negative feelings of pessimism and uncertainty. Body needs flexibility to work at its best in life. The Stressed body results in bad postures and drooping shoulders which form very unimpressive body language.
‘In a Sound Body lies a Sound Mind.’
Body can only be made sound by following a regular exercise regime.
The benefits of which would be-
Exercise helps to-
- Improve your balance and co-ordination
- Tones and tightens your body
- Increases your capacity, and concentration
- Restores bones and muscle loss
- Keeps your heart healthy
- Stimulates the fat-burning process
- Improves your lung capacity
- Burns out your stress hormones, and elevates feel good hormones like endorphins.
Before following any sort of exercise regimen you should be first of all be aware your body type and about the capacity of your body. One should not take up a vigorous regimen as a beginner. Before taking up an exercise regimen one should undergo a physical test. The physical test includes Pathology test, Diabetic profile, Liver Profile which will first help in diagnosing the problems that already exist in your body. This should not stress you, because keeping yourself abreast of your problems helps in following a more appropriate regimen without giving undue stress upon your body. Do remember not to be too harsh upon your body.
Many people are hitting gym these days but if you can’t afford that no worries. All you need is a good pair of sports shoes, a skipping rope and some of your favorite music and you can begin from where you are. You can start it by going for a Jogging or walk in the morning. You can even take up skipping. Skipping is the simplest form of exercise that is very much capable of providing you with quick energy and all the effects of a wholesome workout. You can also go for all those exercises which were taught to you during school days. Nowadays much fitness DVD’s have come up that can so very well guide you to put your leg forward. Many bollywood personalities have now come up with their fitness DVD’s like Bipasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty and Lara Dutta. You can follow such fitness DVD’s and can religiously follow their personal exercise regimen. Nowadays internet is the big thing and can guide you on anything you ask for. So you can go for the videos and step by step guides to exercises which have the pictorial representation of all the exercises running by their side.
Well, exercise is not just only about having a special workout session always. If I talk about women first, they have so many household chores of such sort that they can cover their exercises in them also. All the household chores starting from sweeping, kneading dough, washing clothes, cooking involve exercise of some sort. Cooking is regarded as best stress busting activity. Sweeping provides ample amount of movement to your lower back if done with the correct posture. So women should try to do some of the above household chores on a daily basis. While if we see the life of men; they have long working hours and they have to sit all the time. This requires them to move outdoors and take some fresh air into their systems. What they can also do is that they can just take a walk in their office place after certain intervals of time. After coming from office they can just go for a brisk walk or a rigorous jogging to release their entire vent up emotions. It is always demanded from a man to leave all his office tensions in office and to relax in his home and this can be possible only if he indulges himself in some sort of exercise to release his daily vent up of stress hormones and paving way towards the release of feel good hormones. Kids are already physically very active in their schools; nowadays they are more glued to their mobile or tablet screens or to their tuition. This is not a good thing. Parents should encourage their children to move outdoors and indulge in some form of a sport. Parents should themselves also try to play with their kids and make it a daily routine. This will increase your bonding too. Sports should be encouraged at school and college level. Old age also brings with it lot of problems. These problems can be minimized if we make our bodies and minds strong through regular exercise. The senior citizens should also try to indulge themselves in doing some light physical workout and should not altogether stick to their beds unless it is required.
