Would a Little Exercise Really Be That Tough?

By Tom Herrin

Too many times, when people think about their need to get more exercise, visions of sweat dripping from their face may be the first impression they see.  For many, that may be the way it is, but it doesn't have to be in order to get the exercise they need.  While there are all kinds of reasons people choose, getting enough exercise to support good health is not nearly as difficult as they may believe.  Simply getting some regularly may be far more productive than ups and downs that so many experience.  There may be something for everyone in the way of exercise, but consistency may be the real key.

Small Amounts of Exercise May Stave Off Problems

Many people seem to feel that if they can't go all the way in exercising, they won't do it at all.  This can be a considerable mistake.  The all or none idea about exercise can have some pretty serious consequences and is nowhere near as productive as the slow but steady effort that can actually bolster health.  It has been said that fewer than 20 percent of those over 65 get as much exercise as is recommended.  Simply moderate exercise can do what is needed.  This is thought to help avoid heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, and a list of other problems.

A Simple Exercise Plan May Help Prevent Serious Health Problems

It is unfortunate that many people do not realize just what results may be gained by doing only a few things.  So many times, they think of building up endurance by running or muscles by some other kind of workout.  The goal should be to help the body to work its best.  This can be done with only two or three hours per week of regular exercise.  It is known to reduce the chances of colon and breast cancer as well as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure along with a good list of other things.

Any Exercise Is Always Better Than None

I try to find things I would do anyway, but I avoid taking the easy route.  For me, this may be walking to a store a few blocks away, parking near the edge of parking lot when I go shopping, taking smaller loads when I am carrying something, or anything else I can think of.  The point is to do everything possible to keep from being a couch potato.  It really isn't that difficult and can bring about some good results.  Making a few extra steps when we do something may pay off in a big way in health.
