You must have seen two kinds of aging women, one who suffers a lot of pain, disease, and obesity and the other one who is completely fit, healthy, and active. Why is there a lot of difference in the same age group of women? The main difference is exercise.
Exercise is one of the most important activities for everyone, whether it’s an infant or a person in their late 70’s. You must have heard many people saying to do exercise to be fit and healthy. I have listed the benefits and importance of exercise for aging women.
Healthy mental state: Exercise not only gives physical benefits, but it boosts our mental health as well. A study has shown people who do regular exercise are less likely to be depressed. Exercise releases a hormone that reduces stress and increases the happy feeling; that’s why this hormone is commonly known as the “happy hormone.” Many older women suffer from a lack of sleep, and exercise helps them to get a relaxed body and to get a good sleep. Many women complain about the mood swings they face; they get irritated easily during their mood swings. Well, exercise will help to improve their mood and reduce mood swings.
Helps In Losing Weight:
Many older women are suffering from excessive weight or obesity. Exercise helps them to fight obesity and lose weight. Many people think that being overweight is not a big deal; few say obesity is nothing but a healthy body. But this is not true; every year, thousands of people die because of obesity or overweight. So exercise is crucial to those who are overweight and those who want to maintain their healthy body.
Exercise boosts immunity as well as increases stamina in our body. We all have suffered and still are suffering from the pandemic caused by the Novel CoronaVirus. Meanwhile, we all have heard that doctors are saying that the virus attacks our immunity. So, what do you think, what should we do now? The answer is, try to increase our immunity. Well, we can easily boost our immunity by doing regular exercise and eating healthy food.
Embrace A Healthy Heart:
Exercise is very beneficial for the cardiovascular system and will help you to get a balanced cholesterol level, balanced blood pressure, and heart rate. Exercise will keep many kinds of diseases away from your healthy body. It even reduces the risk of falling in aging women. Exercise is proven to reduce the risk of a heart attack.
Increase Life Span:
No, it’s not a joke! A study has shown that people who are regular to exercise and take a healthy diet live longer than an average person who does not exercise at all. Regular exercise means a completely healthy mind and body. Every part of yours will function properly, whether it’s your heart, your brain, your bone, or your muscles.
Exercise has not only mental and physical benefits but is also beneficial socially. A good mood and a healthy mind attract more faces. Many aging women complain they feel lonely, and no one usually gives time to them. Well, exercise is a good idea to make new friends nearby. How about joining some fun exercise groups with people of your age. You can even join clubs specially made for people of your age.
Exercise does not require a lot of money to buy heavy equipment like a treadmill and dumbbells etc. People of your age can stay fit and healthy by doing easy exercise. You can do jogging, Zumba, aerobics, square,s, etc. So it is quite economical as compared to your health.
By now, we have seen the importance of exercise for aging women. Which benefits are you choosing to start exercise today? Honestly, I can’t find a single demerit not to start my exercise. Give a kick start to your healthy life today. Always remember it’s never too late!
Many older people regret it now, that’s why they started exercising at an early age. Actions are better than regret, ladies. This is the right time to start exercise; it’s never too late to get it done. This year let us take an oath to keep ourselves fit, healthy, and active by doing regular exercise.
