Exercise is what keeps you well oiled throughout your entire life.
If you cease to exercise, you give your body the chance to stiffen, become unreliable and fall apart.
Continued exercise keeps your body limber enough so that you'll be moving and grooving for years to come!
But really, what does all this running do for YOU anyway?
Here's to name just a few...
- keeps you sharp and attentive.
- is good for your complexion and keeps you looking young and beautiful.
- soothes you sole, takes away stress and relaxes your life.
- keeps your weight in control.
- is good for your sex life.
- is good for your heart.
- is good for your blood pressure.
- gives you stronger bones, joints and (of course) muscles.
- has you craving healthier foods.
- makes you more mindful of life.
- makes you more sociable.
- makes you feel happier.
- makes you feel more comfortable.
- has you always outdoor and playing.

Aren't you glad you're doing it?
I am investing time in exercising 3-4 days a week. Along with the diet, things are going well.. during the holidays it is so hard to stay on task!ReplyDelete
WoW! so many health benefits to jogging! I find the older you get, the harder it is on your joints but I agree continued exercise will keep your body limber even as you get older! Great points Gilly!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing all the benefits of running. I believe once someone sees how much they health can improve, it motivates them to move! It certainly has helped me. Your posts are an inspiration to me. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thank you for listing out all of the positive benefits to running. Getting rid of the excuses is the hardest part of the journey.ReplyDelete
At best I will start walking and I believe all benefits you listed for running apply to walking to. Thanks for motivation.ReplyDelete
I still need to make time for exercise. I do like to runReplyDelete
I just got back on track with the excercise routine. I can really relate to that stiffness and needing a real good oiling!ReplyDelete
So glad to get back to the excercise routine!ReplyDelete
I always feel better when I exercise regularly. Thanks for the reminder!ReplyDelete
I've never been one for running. I understand all the great health benefits of it though. Exercising is definitely a must to staying healthy!ReplyDelete
I used to run, but my knees can't really take it any more. I lift now, that's what I enjoy and I do it because I really like it. I also walk my dog 6 miles/day, because he is a big dog that needs a lot of exercise. If I don't move my body, I am not as happy.ReplyDelete
Exercising is always last on my list. I think about it everyday. BUT... excuses fill and I don't do itReplyDelete
Your blog is encouraging
Thanks Robin, it's just about making it a habit and knowing each week the 3days you have to get it done :)ReplyDelete
Terri awesome that you are getting active!ReplyDelete
Excellent Kung Poo! Yes the holidays can be difficult when we get into mindless eating :) try your best to stick with your exercise schedule :)ReplyDelete
Yes you are right Norma, the older you are the harder it can be. If you start with a very gentle program that has respect for the body and it's changes it can be a wonderful way to get in shape. It's also advisable to get a check before hand to make sure you're in good health to start. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thank you Alexandra. Yes the benefits out weigh living a stationary life. A lot of us are completely surprised how much our life changes for the better!ReplyDelete
You're welcome Christy. Excuses can pop up when you least expect it and ruin plans that you may have for yourself. Do your best to turn a blind eye :)ReplyDelete
Roslyn yes the benefits are the same for walking and are just as rewarding. If you don't want to run, walking is another favourite gentler exercise of mine :)ReplyDelete
Casa Vilora Interiors put it on your bucket list and schedule every week. You can do it!ReplyDelete
