Importance Of Physical Fitness In The Long Run

No excuses. Increasingly today people of all age groups world over are waking up to the importance of being physically fit regardless of the kind of life they lead or their work and personal commitments. In fact, as per recent studies younger people in India are listing physical fitness as a top life goal along with travel, entrepreneurship and work-life balance.

With longer life spans and pressures of modern living, we simply cannot afford to push our health to the back seat. After all our body is our first and guaranteed true life partner from birth to death. Look after it now and it will serve you well later in life when you really need it to.

Here are some points to consider that will put in perspective the crucial role of physical fitness in order for you to lead a good, healthy and happy life in the long run.   

  1. Physical Fitness Helps Maintain Strong Muscles and Bones
    Apart from practising incorrect postures for long periods due to demands of work, as we age our muscles and bones tend to experience wear and tear. A regular physical fitness regime can build strong muscles and increase bone density when you are young and help prevent loss and maintain muscle strength and bone density in later years so you are less prone to injury or osteoporosis.


  1. Physical Fitness can Keep Your Brain and Memory Sharp
    Being physically fit is important for both a healthy body and mind. Brain functioning naturally changes and slows down as we progress in years. Playing a sport or doing some form of physical exercise to stay fit as you get older can significantly help in keeping you mentally active, alert and also boost memory levels.   


  1. Physical Fitness Can Make You A Happier Person
    Ever noticed your mood right after a session of Zumba, yoga, gym or something as simple as an early morning brisk walk or a run? Indulging in any physical fitness activity has an uplifting impact on our mood, reducing stress, anxiety and pulling us out of depressive negative thoughts. So, we feel good, lighter and happier, thanks to the happy hormones serotonin and endorphin that physical activity helps trigger in our brain.  


  1. Physical Fitness Helps Reduce Risk of Chronic Diseases
    Staying physically fit and active can considerably negate the pressures of a hectic and demanding yet largely sedentary lifestyle and reduce the risk of acquiring lifestyle related chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease in the long run.


  1. Physical Fitness can Boost Your Energy Levels 
    Those who are physically fit are able to increase their stamina to deal more easily with daily work demands and household chores. Doing some physical activity daily especially cardio exercises improves heart and lung health and leaves you feeling more energetic. Keeping your stamina and energy levels up is not just necessary now to reduce urban living fatigue, but even more important in the long run.


  1. Physical Fitness helps Keep Your Weight in Check 
    If you are constantly watching your weight and worried about shedding those extra inches, stay active and follow a physical fitness routine. It can be particularly beneficial in the long run especially if you tend to put on weight that in turn can lead to many health problems.


All these points are vital in the long run to maintain our overall well-being as we get on in years. Incorporating some physical activities to stay fit can definitely help us cope much better with our daily routines. So stretch, bend, swim, skip, walk, jog, run, dance, cycle or whatever it is that you enjoy doing but do keep all those body parts exercised regularly so that they perform efficiently and optimally like well-oiled machinery. Being physically fit has immense health benefits and gives you a better quality of life especially in your latter years.

Just like it is important to invest in your physical fitness, investing in health insurance early on is equally important so you are prepared in case of any health-related eventuality. It is advisable to buy a comprehensive health insurance policy that will give you benefits like cashless hospitalisation cover at network hospitals, critical illness and pre and post hospitalisation expenses coverage. You can purchase health insurance online at your convenience from a reputed health insurance company and enjoy security, assurance and peace of mind for your personal health and those of your loved ones.
