For most people, working out represents just an effective method of losing weight
However, those who go to the gym just to stay in shape and relieve stress are very few.
By transforming this activity into a routine has huge benefits that, most of the times, we are not even aware of.
Since the prehistorical times, the movement was crucial in terms of surviving, providing food or exploring the surroundings.
Long story short: moving is natural
As the human race evolves, people have found more and more ways of moving less.
For some, the only movements are those from behind a computer and when they are not typing, they are driving, watching TV or eating and so on.
This time around, the “long story short” is that moving has become unnatural.
Considering that he no longer has to move in order to survive, man has completely eliminated this crucial part of his life, responsible for the proper functioning of his body.
In order to compensate, they have resorted to fitness halls.
Ultimately, this “perfect machine” – the human body, needs movement as it needs air, water and food
Walking and exercising should be mentioned by doctors on their medical recipes or, even more, it should be seen as a vaccine, as a miraculous cure.
We can all agree that, if exercising was as easy as drinking a glass of water, nobody was supposed to even know what an illness is.
No matter how old you are, the moment is now
Exercising does the body well and you need to find a simple means of introducing this activity into your daily schedule.
From simple steps like walking to climbing the stairs instead of grabbing the elevator, everyone should find a way of including physical activity into their lives at least 4 times per week, 30 minutes per day.
If you choose to do this at home, there is always that element of the convenience of being in your own environment that automatically makes you feel more relaxed, although nothing compares to exercising outdoors.
Why should you include physical activity in your life?
Scientists have found that people who lead an active lifestyle have longer telomeres, those genetic sections that protect the ends of the chromosomes during cell division, which as the years go by, tend to become shorter.
In addition, physical activity is also the most powerful metabolic stimulant.
Nothing strengthens the metabolic processes, chemical, enzymatic and regenerative reactions in the body, as the physical effort.
By strengthening the metabolism, you accelerate the elimination of toxins and metabolic waste.
