Our Lazy Complex Presents a Staggering Risk to Society
There is a problem that faces us in every aspect of life. An enemy that affects the lives of many yet tends to go completely unnoticed at times. However, one act of murder or terrorism and the whole world is in an uproar. One outbreak of SARS or the bird flu and everyone is up in arms. Yet there is a much more severe threat that faces everyone from every walk of life, everyday.
So what is this problem you ask? The technical term for this worldwide problem is modern chronic disease. It accounts for over 60 percent of deaths in the entire world and is a severe epidemic throughout the world today. It is a disease that spreads through neglect and poor lifestyle choices. It leads to such severe problems as cancer, diabetes and heart disease just to name a few. In the USA alone, this epidemic kills more than 2,600 people very day. Throughout the world the number is even more staggering. Over the next decade it is predicted that this disease will kill over 350 million people.
Thanks to new technology and creations our modern society thrives on laziness. There is rarely any incentive to remain fit or engage in physical activity. We can get anything done and eat anything without even having to leave the house or get off of the computer. Our lives have become revolved around sitting. Sitting in a car, sitting in a chair at work and sitting on the couch feeding our need for television.
It seems that everyone is starting to neglect how important physical activity is. Our bodies feed off of and need exercise in order to remain strong and healthy. With no stimulation of our systems our cells and hormones cannot repair themselves or reproduce in a way that is beneficial to our bodies. It seems that the more we grow as society and the smarter we get, the more we forget about the basics of nutrition and health.
Our health and sickness as a whole is on a downward spiral. We are now choosing to watch television and play computer games rather than engage in life extending activities. This is not only unfair to ourselves but also unfair to future generations. As more people learn of the dangers of laziness and modern chronic disease, an uproar is beginning. We must continue to educate people on the dangers of their lifestyle choices and how to improve the value and length o their lives.
It is through changing the mindset of society that we can make the most difference. We need to stop seeing exercise as an unnecessary chore and start viewing it as a way of life. It is a choice that must be made in order to live appropriately.
Another problem is that we are becoming so reliant upon doctors and the medicines they prescribe. What we need to understand as a species is that prevention is the best medicine. Once you have been stricken down by a disease there are rarely any cures or options available to you. However the fact is that you can prevent these problems simply by living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of yourself.

May 1st, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized No Comments » You Are Taking a Very Big Risk If You Do Not Exercise
Here is a simple fact - if you are over 35 and do not exercise you cannot possibly have a high quality of life and in fact are exposing yourself to a greater risk of a life threatening disease that could well bring about an early demise.
In our youth, exercise and activity is largely about how we look and our appearance. Scary things like illness and dysfunction are simply too remote a possibility to fuel our desire to become and stay active. But, as we get past our early thirties, suddenly there is a realization our body is not indestructible as the wear and tear of life starts to show and begins to impact on us in ways not experienced earlier in life.
An exercise program usually takes a back seat when our responsibilities in life increase such as career and taking care of a family yet we can experience higher stress levels with our hectic schedules. Although we would benefit greatly from an exercise program at this point in our life it is often viewed as something that takes up too much precious time. The problem is though, when you de-prioritize exercise the negative impact on your body can reach further and far beyond what you ever imagined.
In fact every part of your life can become endangered if you fail to provide your body with the right activity and can have the following effects:
Weakens your immune system - lack of vigorous activity can slow the cleansing of the body of toxins and waste which over time can weaken the immune system. An increase in blood flow associated with vigorous activity helps to circulate antibodies along with killer blood cells to detect and fight diseases such as cancer.
Slows your metabolism - (our metabolic engine) after age 35, we lose lean muscle tissue from our body at the rate of 300 - 500 grams per year. And, since muscle tissue is where the most calories are burnt for energy every little bit you lose drops fat burning and increases the likelihood of you becoming overweight. Strength training exercise is the only way to stop this happening and rebuilding lost muscle tissue will increase your metabolic rate (the rate your body burns fuel) and help you lose body fat.
Being inactive increases the risk of heart disease or attack – Without proper exercise the heart which is a muscle can become scrawny, weak and unfit. Strength training exercise keeps the heart strong and healthy.
You really only have two options: (1) make immediate plans to start a properly structured exercise program and get the most out of every day and your life, or (2) remain inactive and, a some point, your health is going to decline and all that time you said you didn’t have to exercise will be taken up fighting illness or disease.
The decision is pretty easy to make don’t you think? Just a little bit of time maybe 2 – 3 hours per week could protect you from disease, give you more energy, give you renewed strength, endurance, stamina, vigor and vitality. That’s a damn fine deal in any ones books.
Make sure you seek the help of a fitness professional to teach you your proper exercise program so you can get the most benefit from it. For strength training exercise to work it needs to be performed at the right intensity, duration, frequency, needs be monitored and the program changed regularly.
We all only get one shot on this merry-go-round so we may as well take good care of the only body we will ever get so it takes us the full distance on this road of life.
