Keeping fit through physical activity is said to help delaying aging
effects and increase quality of life. According to recent US studies it
can potentially prolong one's lifetime.
At little more exercise in our spare time could work as a natural
anti-aging measure. It could even prolong our lives for some additional
years. Researchers from the US National Institute of Health (NIH) have
now released current study results that link physical activity and
mortality rates. According to the studies with a small effort of 2, 5
hours per week people could expect life expectancy up to 3, 4 years. The
NIH therefore suggests adults between 18 and 64 should engage in either
moderate weekly exercise of 2, 5 hours or 1, 25 hours of more intense
work out. Moderate means that while running one should be still able to
speak however singing should be a struggle. Failing to speak could be
seen as an indicator for the intensity being too high.
Steven Moore and his colleagues from the National Cancer Institute, a
part of the NIH, compared data of 650.00 people from the age of 40 and
over. The results showed that life expectancy rose up to 3, 4 with all
candidates that followed the institute's advice.
Sports- ambitious participants that worked out twice as much could
prolong heir lives even up to 4, 2 years. Even those who were only half
as active as the suggested average could extend their lives
significantly at least for up to 1, 8 years after all. Importantly,
regular physical activity affects both sexes equally positive.
According to Moore an increase in physical activity can thus extend ones
live with one's body weight and also some moderate overweight not
necessarily playing the key element. However being overweight is one of
the main reasons for reduced live expectancy costing affected people 5
to 7 years of their lives. Consequently, getting active could be one
measure to act compensatory.
Caron Leckie, nutritionist at Diet Chef the UK's leading home delivered
diet company, comments "The benefits of exercise are endless - from
stress reliever, lowering blood pressure and giving you an extra boost.
Also as exercising need not be a chore. It's surprising how easily one
can increase daily activity into a busy lifestyle".
At Diet Chef, customers are
encouraged to try and add some physical activity to their daily lives.
Although it is not an essential part of the plan customers learn how
housework as well taking the stairs can make a difference and even burn
calories along the way at a minimum effort. Once people start to stick
to choosing to walk to work or getting a bus station off earlier or
leave the lift aside they regular movement begins to become part of
their normal routine.
