Exercise

Exercise

Exercise is a most important part of prevention and maintaining health and wellness. Our distant ancestors had no automobiles, they often did hard physician work, walked long distances to accomplish anything and bent, stooped and lifted without the help of machines. Physical exercise is important to both the mechanics of our body and to its ability to maintain its well-being. Today, by comparison, we live a sedentary life style and we are paying prices we may not really ant to pay. Not only physical problems such as back pain, arthritis and obesity but also impaired immune system, depression, anxiety and other physical, mental and spiritual problems.

In this next section we will look at the role exercise can play in preventing illness and returning ourselves to a full and complete state of wellness.
