The media is laced with advertisements about health and fitness. The truth is many of them ring true as staying fit and healthy is not only important to your physical health but your mental health as well. To bring you up to speed and highlight some of the best benefits of exercise, consider the following:

  • Regular exercise helps avoid serious conditions and diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Arthritis, certain types of cancer, stroke and type 2 diabetes can also be avoided or managed well with exercise. 
  • Exercise teamed up with good eating is what helps keep your weight at a healthy level. Obesity can lead to many of the conditions listed above and even small increases in weight can put your health in danger.
  • If you are lagging during the day, the cause could be a poor night’s sleep. Activity during the day will help you fall asleep faster and put you in a deeper sleep. It will also give you more energy to get through the day as it improves the function of your heart and lungs.
  • If you need a mood booster or a lifting of low spirits, exercise is the answer. Getting out and being active stimulates chemicals in your brain that help you feel happier and relaxed. This is beneficial if you have a stressful job or need to boost your confidence and self-esteem.

If you are convinced now of the benefits of exercise, make sure your feet are up to the task. Come and see Dr. Phil Pinsker, foot specialist in Washington, PA who can assess your foot health and treat any problems that might get in the way of your efforts.
