Benefits of....Exercise

Exercise

Prescribed dose:

A healthy adult should have 20-30 minutes of aerobic activity 3 or more times per week. Plus muscle strengthening and stretching at least twice a week.
 

Additional recommendations:

The human body was made to move. Exercise increases physical endurance, and mental well-being. Exercise also stimulates the production of endorphins, and enkephalins, hormones that give you a "feel good' high.
 
Vigorous exercise on a regular basis prevents the body from deteriorating. Outdoor exercise in the sun and fresh air is best. Walking is a wonderful form of exercise that involves the whole body; it increases blood circulation, thus increasing oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles, organs and cells. Walking promotes healthy heart and lung function, controls blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and can burn up to 100 calories per mile.
