How Exercise Extends Life and Health

Exercise has long been promoted as a means to achieve a healthier live. Regular exercise is paramount to weight control, managing fatigue, and discouraging disease. I thought I would make a space to bring together many of the point-specific ways that exercise promotes longevity, anti-aging, and many years of healthy living.

The Anti-Aging Traits of Exercise

  1. High Intensity Exercise Can Decrease Insulin Levels
  2. Weight Training Can Decrease Joint Pain
  3. Glaucoma Control: Aerobic Exercise Can Normalize Eye Pressure
  4. Exercise Treats Depression Symptoms as Well as Medication
  5. Yoga (and other forms of exercise) Can Improve Your Sex Life
  6. Aerobic Exercise Ads 12 Years To Your Life
  7. Exercise Lowers Chances of Death From Any and All Causes

I hope this list helps offer you the incentive to get active. If you are looking to live your life to it’s full potential and live with optimal health then let me tell you it doesn’t take much work. We all goof off for hours every day. All you have to do is devote a few minutes a day a few days a week to meet your quota. A 30-minute job, a 30-minute aerobic weight routine, a 30-min exercise video, what ever it takes.

Personally I’m starting an exercise video regimen: P90X. I invite you to join me in extending your life and vitality through your chosen means of exercise. Longevity is a goal I’ve always had and I hope you’ll join me in my pursuits for lasting health.
