Tip of the Day - Exercise – Is it worth the trouble?

For many of us, the hardest part of exercising is just getting started. Whether it’s persuading yourself to take a walk after work, dragging your weary self to the gym, or motivating yourself to follow a workout DVD before hitting the couch, it’s just plain hard! But you also probably know by now, once you actually get going, it’s really not so bad.

Eating a healthy diet is a huge part losing weight, but exercise is also a major part of the equation. For starters you burn more calories when you exercise. It boots your mood (what’s better than that after a stressful day at the office?). Exercise also helps you sleep (more sleep equals less stress). There you have it – three great reasons to make fitness a priority.

So get moving! With every step you take, your weight-loss goal gets closer, and your health risks slip further away.

    You are absolutely right . . . I feel so good after I exercise . . . and yet I have been lazy lately about doing just that. I need to push myself more.

    I don't exercise. I walk the halls and stairs in our complex for exercise.
