The Case For Exercise

three reasons for it to not be all or nothing

Dr_Alisha_MoadabMany people all know that diet and exercise are the pillars of good health. However, that doesn't help us any when trying to fit it into busy lives, or knowing how much or what we should be doing. One hour can seem intimidating or unrealistic for some, but something has to get done. Think of it this way, back in the day, humans didn't have sit down jobs, or as sedentary lives as we do today, we were designed to move and work our bodies, tend to farms, build, hunt or gather, etc. These activities were part of our daily life and a necessity to survival. The 21 century necessity seems to be making money for survival, along with the demands of taking care of family. Consider this, would you tell work that you were too tired or didn't have the energy to come in, or just weren't in the mood? Do you have another excuse you use?

S omehow exercise has seemed like extra credit in our lives, as in an option to do, and not a necessity. Yet, exercise is a vital to our health, on many levels, mind, body and spirit. Take it in short strides, as in don't feel like you must do one hour. Five minutes can have a positive impact and make a difference, consider easy at home things like push ups, sit ups, wall sits, plank, jumping jacks, jog in place with high knees, and more.

  1. 3 minutes of HIT (High Intensity Training) improves insulin sensitivity by an average of 24% [1]
  2. Every time you exercise your metabolism increases, and is not dependent on duration, for example you can take a 30 minute workout and do 3 ten minute training sessions and have a greater impact by breaking it up [2]
  3. Small steps will get you closer to your goal (better health, mind, body), over standing still and doing nothing.

You only get one body in this life, and if you don't have good health, you don't have much else to enjoy, consider yourself and health the most important thing!
