Get adequate amount of rest daily. Sleep affects our physical and mental health in a big way, and so many people overlook this. There are vast numbers of people who do not get enough rest and sleep.
Lack of sleep negatively affects metabolism, mood, concentration, memory, motor skills, stress hormones, the immune system, as well as the cardiovascular system. Sleep allows the body to heal itself, repair and refresh itself. It cannot perform good repair while in constant or active use.
So understand that rest is every bit a part of the exercise game as probably the most basic general exercising. Speaking of exercising, get some in everyday. Even if you just get out for a walk a few times a week, exercise is important for being fit and healthy.
Cardiovascular exercise helps to strengthen the heart and lungs, strength training helps to strengthen the muscles and stretching helps to reduce the risk of injury by increasing flexibility.
Exercise also improves circulation and body awareness, and exercising regularly may help depression or low moods. You’ll feel better and you’ll give your body activity so you’re able to keep active even while chronologically getting older.
Make sure if you’re exercising excessively, that you replenish yourself adequately with micro nutrients, and vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. You do lose nutrients in your sweat, so it is vital to replenish them correctly!
