Are you exercising enough?
When engaged in the conversation concerning the heart, it's sometimes hard not to mention the importance of exercise and keeping fit. You don't have to be a strongman or the women star runner to keep fit. Nevertheless, it has been recognized that regular exercise and physical fitness are second only to nutrition as the most important part of maintaining a healthy body and healthy heart. And it's a key element in all proper weight management, STRESS reduction and improved endurance, including cardiovascular endurance.
Exercise is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Beginning and maintaining an exercise routine is sometimes difficult for many healthy people, let alone those who need it the most because of some unhealthy condition. However, you will find that it is worth the effort once you find a level of fitness that works for you.
The minimum you need to do is 30 minutes, three times a week!
The main thing is to find and choose an exercise program that's right for you. A program that will work for your busy schedule, one that you will enjoy and have fun doing, but also a program that will get your cardiovascular endurance up. A good rule of thumb for minimal fitness would be at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at a minimum of three times a week. This should be a beneficial beginning.
You must maintain in order to retain fitness.
The best way, or I should say, one of the best ways to make this exercise program work is to start out slowly, and add a little each day and then a little more each and every week and so on. If you work at it to get better, it will happen, and then you must maintain your fitness level to become and remain healthy. Make sense?
You will need to start with stretches.
A recommendation would be to always begin you exercise with some sort of stretches. These stretches will increase your flexibility and are a great way to warm up before you start your exercise.
I would suggest walking to start your program.
Lets try walking. Walking is a great inexpensive way to start your personal exercise program. When you make walking part of your every day routine, it will become part of you, it will play an important part in your exercise program. Here's the deal though, you can't allow any excuses for not exercising, like rain, snow, or any of the normal excuses. If the weather is bad outside, take it inside. The most important thing is, consistency. Start small and slowly increase the time that you walk each day, consistently.
And remember, that with any exercise program, make sure you push yourself a little more each time to get those full, deep, breaths to get the oxygen to your muscles and brain where it's needed the most.
So, what do you say, are we having fun yet??
Look in the mirror, do a little self talk, or maybe, it will take a lot of self talk, whatever, then carve out an hour a day to start and lets get going until it becomes routine.
And as always, drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water, lots of it, with two-four ounces of Organic Aloe Vera every day.
Of course, know your supplier!!!
