Regular exercise is something that many of us struggle to fit into our daily lives with work, families and other commitments often taking priority. Although we are taught that keeping active is important, do you know what the benefits of creating this habit are?
As well as benefiting from weight management, incorporating exercise into your lifestyle can help lower the risks of many common illnesses and diseases. This includes a lowered risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses, a lowered risk of type 2 diabetes, a lowered risk of osteoporosis and other bone and joint related illnesses and even a lowered risk of early death.
How Does It Help?
Regular physical activity encourages a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure and preventing plaque from building up in your arteries. It also improves blood flow and increases your heart’s working capacity.
Adding exercise to your priority list can also help to manage noninsulin-dependent diabetes (type 2) through the reduction of body fat.
One of the best ways to prevent osteoporosis or bone/joint related issues is through regular weight-bearing exercise. This promotes bone mass and density and may prevent many forms of bone loss that are associated with ageing.
Along with the health benefits listed above, there are numerous physical improvements associated with exercise. These include lowered stress levels, better sleep and improved mental well-being and confidence just to name a few.
How Can It Help?
Physical activity helps to reduce stress and improve sleep by increasing the production of endorphins. This is the ‘high’ that is often felt after exercise. You’ll also find that after a workout, whether this is in the gym or a walk-through nature, you’ll have forgotten the day’s negatives. As this becomes a habit the energy and optimism will help you to remain calm and clear throughout your daily activities.
Regular exercise can also increase self-confidence due to weight loss, increased endorphins and a feeling of achievement by reaching your goals.
The key thing to remember is everyone has to start somewhere. If you’re completely new to exercise then begin by increasing your overall daily movements. This can be done by setting yourself a steps goal and hitting this every day for a week. Once you have achieved this, you could begin incorporating visits to the gym, going for runs or swims until you are reaching the recommended amount of daily activity per week for your age.
If you do have any health problems it is recommended that you visit your GP prior to beginning an exercise regime and they will be able to suggest the best type of physical activity for you.
Where does 3D-lipo Leamington Spa come into this? At our clinic, we provide a range of non-surgical fat loss treatments. These can help with pockets of fat and overall circumference reduction but they won’t help with your visceral fat percentage.
We do advise that our clients maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to see the best results from our treatments and to also improve the quantity of visceral fat, and as long as the client doesn’t gain any further weight, the results can be permanent.
