These days, with all the technological advances adopted by mankind to ease our passage through this life, we have become highly efficient in performing tasks quicker and better than ever before. The world is moving at an incredible pace and this has afforded us exponential growth as a species.
However, this advancement has come with obvious setbacks. We are not doing the jobs; rather technology is doing the jobs for us. And we simply maneuver the technology.
We may travel hundreds of miles every day and yet hardly anyone uses their own feet to do the travelling. Vehicles do the travelling. Need a letter delivered? No more postmen needed; we have emails. Need to dig a trench? No need for hard labor; we have excavators. Need to harvest the crop? No need to handle the scythe yourself; we have combine harvesters to do it for us.
Our bodies are deteriorating, our muscles losing their strength, our bones losing their mass because human beings were not meant to sit on their backsides and work nine to five punching digits into a computer.
Therefore it is of imperative importance that we introduce heavy, physical exertions back into our lives. Here we shall talk about some of the benefits of regular exercise both for the mind and the body.
One of the major problems with the world today is obesity. The problem has reached nearly epidemic proportions in some parts of the world.
Other than the general discomfort experienced by most obese or overweight individuals, it also comes with numerous health risks, such as increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
People are getting overweight, not because they are eating more, but because they are exercising less. Introducing a strict workout plan into your daily routine will help you burn the overabundance of calories so that your body goes into a calorie deficit. Staying fit and in-shape will help you avoid a range of diseases and it will also help boost your self-esteem and confidence.
