Exercise & Fitness Help Guide

Mind & Body

Exercising regularly is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. It lowers your risk for serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure. It can also trim your figure, improve your sleep, and pep up your sex life. And not only is exercise good for your body, it’s also good for your mind, mood, and memory.

Being physically active can ease depression, relieve stress and anxiety, enhance self-esteem, and improve your whole outlook on life. And you don’t have to spend long, boring hours in a gym to reap these benefits. Whatever your age, health limitations, or fitness levels, you can develop an exercise program that’s fun and rewarding and fits your life.
