An Overview on the Importance of Physical Activity
May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month! Are you ready to #MoveInMay? Well you should be! Physical activity is essential to a healthy lifestyle. By not engaging in physical activities on a regular basis, residents living in the greater Tyler, Texas area will become overweight and become prone to a number of unwanted health conditions. As a leading wellcare provider in East Texas offering the HCG medical weight loss program and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), Tyler Wellcare is here to share the importance of remaining active throughout life.
Make Physical Activity a Part of Your Daily Life
Physical activity is critical to every person’s overall health, no matter their age. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends that all adults engage in at least 2.5 hours of moderately to vigorously intense physical activity each week. Individuals can decide how they would like to divide up that time – 30 minutes, five days a week or shorter periods of 10 minutes over seven days a week. Muscle strengthening exercises are also recommended at least two days a week.
Regular physical activity has numerous health benefits, such as:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Strengthening muscles and bones
- Lowering blood pressure and cholesterol
- Reducing the risk of serious health conditions such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease
