Being active has benefits for everyone. Some obvious and not-so-obvious effects of exercise include:
- Relieving of pain and stiffness in joints
- Increased energy
- Protection of bones and joints
- Weight loss and/or weight control
- Reduce or delay disability
- Improved mood
Please don’t be discouraged by thinking that exercise is too difficult for you. Not everyone can run a marathon. That’s OK! Exercise can be walking, biking, playing golf, playing pickleball, or really anything that gets you moving! The options are limitless. So, do whatever you enjoy and reap the benefits of an active lifestyle.
