In the news – Study: Not Exercising Is the Worst Thing You Can Do to Your Health | Time

A quick share for those who did not catch this article. Pretty cool – I like to know that I can not really overdo it as far as exercising goes 😉

So the whole point is that the more active you are – the healthier you are!

THIS – “Although it is widely understood that an active lifestyle can lead to a healthy life, the study concludes that a sedentary lifestyle is the equivalent of having a major disease and the simplest cure is exercise.”

“Cardiorespiratory fitness is inversely associated with long-term mortality with no observed upper limit of benefit,” the study says. “Extremely high aerobic fitness was associated with the greatest survival and was associated with benefit in older patients and those with hypertension.”

The study also took a look at the risk of being overactive and found that “ultra” exercisers do not face higher risk of death: the research consistently found that the more a person exercises the lower their mortality rates

    • Blanca, this is awesome!
      For me, if I get out of my routine, the key to starting over and going to the gym is all about listening to my body. Some days if I just do not feel like working out, I still get ready and go to the gym, but I ask myself, what is it that I feel like doing today. Taking a class for some motivation? Or maybe a slow pace yoga class feels better, sometimes just going in and working out with light weights for 20 minutes will do it, or just going for a walk outside – as long as I get my body moving I feel like a winner 🙂
      Stay the course and enjoy the benefits! <3 <3 <3
