Say Yes To Exercise
The Morning Call (Allentown, PA), January 22, 2008
Many individuals resolve to exercise more in the new year. This is good, because exercise, along with proper nutrition and sleep, is an essential component of positive health.
There are several physical and mental benefits of exercise. Seven benefits listed at www.mayoclinic.com/health/exercise/HQ01676
are: improved mood, fewer chronic diseases, weight management, strengthened heart and lungs, better sleep, better sex life, and fun.
Before embarking on an exercise regimen, you should check with your doctor to make sure that the type and frequency of exercise you are planning are appropriate. There are many types of exercise from which to choose. A key factor for follow-through is to select something that you enjoy so that exercise is not viewed as a chore.
