Healthy Family (14)
This episode focuses on the role of physical exercise on the health of family.
Keeping health in families is one of the major issues in today's world. Among the ways suggested for the health of families is doing physical exercise. Doctors say the health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. According to doctors, physical exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you will burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.
If you are worried about heart disease or hope to prevent high blood pressure, no matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or good cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. Doing physical exercise keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, and certain types of cancer.
A workout at the gym or a 30-minute walk can help make you energetic and jolly. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you do physical exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
Regular physical activity can also improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
