Regular exercise is essential for healthy living. It contributes to good health and a strong immune system, mostly through improved blood circulation and increased production of antioxidants. 

Exercise can take on many forms, such as walking; jogging; swimming; weight lifting; dancing; stretching; yoga; Pilates; bicycling, or hiking.

The Villas reminds you that exercise can be the subtlest of movements, like a neck roll, or something more vigorous. If you tune into your body. you may be surprised how well it knows the ways it wants to move.

Some well-known benefits of moving and exercise:

  • Weight management
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease
  • May help prevent diabetes
  • Achieving better blood glucose control
  • Strengthening your bones and muscles
  • Reduced risk of certain cancers
  • Improved cognition and blood flow to the brain
  • Reduced risk of falls
  • Promoting longevity
  • Emotional perks; movement affects you on an emotional and energetic level.

STRESS REDUCTION

During exercise, your body releases chemicals that reduce stress and improve mood. It also increases brain sensitivity for the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which can relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety. Movement also increases the production of endorphins, which promote positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain. 

Exercise also improves your sleep, which is another important factor for immune health. The energy depletion that occurs during exercise amplifies the regenerative processes that occur when you sleep. Studies show moderate exercise drastically improves sleep quality, promoting deeper sleep, longer sleep, and more energy upon waking. 

Even if you don’t have a large amount of time to devote to exercise, you can fit in smaller periods of movement throughout your day, such as:

  • Taking a 10-minute walk
  • Choosing a far parking spot
  • Putting on music and dancing for one or two songs
  • Taking the stairs instead of an elevator
  • Using weights to strength train while watching TV
  • Devoting five minutes before bedtime to stretch
  • Stretching before getting out of bed in the morning 
  • Waking up 30 minutes earlier in the morning to allow for exercise time
