Healthy Lifestyle: BE ALIVE, BE ACTIVE! Make exercise your routine

Besides healthy eating, healthy lifestyle also plays important role to ensure a healthy body.

There are many different designation of the word exercise but all involve making an effort for the sake of training or improvement. Physical exercise involves using our muscle to improve the way our bodies work.

Calories burned: Skating is great cardio, and a fantastic way to work the legs. An average person will burn about 300 to 500 calories for an hour in the rink! (And if you’re not a good skater, have no fear. You’ll burn extra calories laughing when you take a tumble!)

Opportunity for exercise
We don’t necessarily need a gym clothes to start exercising. We seriously don’t need it. Throughout the day, there are many ways of moving our bodies –Taking stairs instead of using a lift and walking up an escalator, move around in the office to send messages are examples of the tiny steps which could have a huge impact on a person’s health. At home while watching television, you can do a few exercises during commercials like lifting a 1 kg dumbbell. When organizing a family day includes sports activity as part of the itinerary; a tug of war can be so much fun. Instead of window shopping or a movie marathon during the weekend, go vigorous!. Try something energetic yet entertaining like bowling, ice skating, arching, paintball or water sport like water orbing. – see, it’s amazing how many exercises a person can squeeze in!

The miracle of exercise:

UCLH/UCL Institute of Sport Exercise and Health, UK describe exercise as “the wonder drug” or ‘magic pill’ which, if used in the right measures can:

  • Reduce the risk of heart disease by 40 per cent
  • Lower the risk of stroke by 27 per cent
  • Reduce the incidence of diabetes by almost half
  • Reduce the risk of recurrent breast cancer by almost half

Exercise is way too good for the health. But for so many reason something refrain us from engaging it as a routine; well most of time it is just a silly excuse. Physical exercise improves our fitness, increasing our stamina, flexibility and strength. Being fit makes the body better able to fight disease and improves our quality of life well into old age. So, let’s make your life lively, make your life active!
