Physical exercise

“Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change.”
― Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business
There is an old saying – “health is wealth”. Achieving good health is not possible without the aid of regular exercise. Most exercise can cure several common diseases that plague young children. People of different age groups prefer to perform different types of categories, mostly according to their stamina. Most elderly people prefer to go on morning and evening walks instead of going to the gym. However, free hand exercises are meant for people of all age groups. Educational institutions such as schools and colleges have included a fixed time period so that children can perform physical exercise. Sports teachers equipped with the knowledge of various kinds of outdoor games are recruited in such educational institutions. This helps them obtain a much needed gap in between their regular study time. In regard to exercise, good practices are followed in regard to sports. These sports include kho-kho, kabadi, monkey-dance on trees etc. Young boys climb on trees to fetch fruits to eat. Children living in cities are quite used to play popular sports such as football, hockey and cricket. Many schools have inter-school competitions regarding these sports, creating a much-needed competitive atmosphere.
“At present, in this vicinity, the best part of the land is not private property; the landscape is not owned, and the walker enjoys comparative freedom. But possibly the day will come when it will be partitioned off into so-called pleasure-grounds, in which a few will take a narrow and exclusive pleasure only,—when fences shall be multiplied, and man-traps and other engines invented to confine men to the public road, and walking over the surface of God’s earth shall be construed to mean trespassing on some gentleman’s grounds. To enjoy a thing exclusively is commonly to exclude yourself from the true enjoyment of it. Let us improve our opportunities, then, before the evil days come.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walking
With increasing stress on the people of today’s generation, proper recreation should be supplemented with regular physical exercise in order to keep one’s body healthy. An unhealthy body can be a target of a myriad of physical illnesses. It decreases the immunity of one’s body. There are several free options that one can avail in order to have some exercise instead of paying the hefty fees in order to enrol in some physical education class. This includes thing such as going out to play with friends, regular morning walks, performing free hand exercises and other activities such as swimming and boating. The Internet has enabled us to gain the knowledge of various things for free – physical exercise is just one such thing. Good health is a combination of a healthy body and mind. Physical exercise is just the best way to be healthy in life. There are other means of being healthy such as the intake of nutritious food, intake of proper medicines, taking enough rest and spending time in proper living conditions. But neither of these can surpass the benefits of physical exercise which is a boon to both the body and mind at the same time.
