Blog written for the Brandon Hall Hotel’s health and leisure club. The first in a series looking at the health benefits of exercise and leading a more active lifestyle.
Most of us know how important regular exercise is when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. Study after study has shown that physical activity is as good for the mind as it is the body. It has the potential to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, which can lead to heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure and angina.
Leading a more active lifestyle can also boost our mental wellbeing too, making us feel happier and more energetic. Just exercising a minimum of 30 minutes each day would go a long way to helping keep our minds and bodies healthy. But sedentary lifestyles, as well as work and family commitments are keeping us more inactive than ever.
We really need to start taking our health and fitness a lot more seriously than we do. So here at the Brandon Health Club we thought we’d run through a few key health and wellness benefits to be achieved through regular exercise.
