Survival of the Fittest
When you understand why an action is beneficial, you have greater motivation to perform that action, and remaining fit and healthy is no different. The best thing you can do to increase your chance of a long life is to remain fit and healthy.
Someone who is physically active for seven hours per week is 40 percent less likely to die early than someone who’s active for less than 30 minutes per week. Remaining fit reduces your risk of suffering from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and many types of cancer.
You may know that your heart is a muscle. It works hard, pumping blood every day of your life. You can help this important muscle get stronger by doing aerobic exercise. When you exercise, you're helping build a strong body that will be able to move around and do all the stuff you need it to do. Try to be active every day and your body will thank you later!
