(SANTA MONICA, CA April 19, 2012) –
A study conducted by Oregon State University has reported that a lack of exercise in women increases the risk of developing severe illnesses and diseases. Such conditions can include metabolic syndrome, a chronic illness that increases blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and fat on all parts of the body. Each of these symptoms alone could be extremely life-threatening, so together the body will be is a horrible state. When these symptoms are affecting the body for a prolonged period of time, it could develop into heart disease, strokes, or type 2 diabetes.
Does this worry you? If you are actively moving about and getting sufficient exercise, then it shouldn’t at all. Unfortunately, statistic reveal that most women suffer from a lack of exercise and only get an average of fifteen minutes of exercise daily, which is under the recommended thirty minutes of intense exercise per day. The excuses for not being able to exercise are blamed on family time, work schedules, and it has even been reported that many women don’t exercise simply because they do not want to mess up there hair.
Get Off Your Butt
There will always be an excuse to avoid exercising, but those that keep making them will surely suffer the health consequences in the future. Moderate physical activity will not only prevent the conditions listed above, but can also decrease the risk of breast cancer by up to forty percent just for as little as three hours of exercise per week.
This doesn’t apply solely to women, as males are also just as inactive, especially if there work does not require them to move much. Although this study focused on women, both genders are equally at risk for serious illnesses, diseases, cancers, strokes, heart diseases, diabetes, and obesity. If you want to live a longer life than most, then you will need to get up and start moving.
Although you may believe that a busy schedule can be a valid excuse for your lack of exercise, it really isn’t if you take the time to learn a few time-saving techniques. Sleep is a necessary requirement in order for us to live our lives, but if you can manage to wake up an hour early each morning to exercises then it would be a good idea to do so.
Morning exercise will not only prevent possible illnesses, but will get your blood pumping and provide you with the natural energy you need to last throughout the day. Be sure to focus on exercises that don’t take a lot of time, but are intense enough to give you the fully effective workout. Workouts should last at least twenty minutes, but it would be best to consult with one of my Los Angeles personal trainers in order to find out exactly what you should do.
