It has been demonstrated that a clear correlation exists between having a more active lifestyle and having less disease/ illness. People who exercise or are active regularly have lower blood pressure, lower heart rates and improved circulation. They also have lower cholesterol, lower body mass indexes (BMI) and less body fat, as well as higher metabolic rates and better weight control. They sleep better, have more energy, are less stressed/anxious and are happier and more confident. Exercise can also improve someone’s social life and regular exercisers also are able to maintain their independence for longer in their own homes.
