Physical activity is of the utmost importance when it comes to maintaining and improving one’s health. This true of everyone. A good exercise routine contributes not only to physical fitness but also to mental health.
Surprisingly, physical health also has massive effects on memory, as has been shown by scientific studies by researchers in areas of neurology and cognitive science (see for instance “Effects of aerobic exercise on mild cognitive impairment: A controlled trial” in Neurology  and “Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Hippocampal Volume, and Frequency of Forgetting in Older Adults,” a 2011 study done at University of Illinois by Amanda Szabo et al.).
Of course the term “routine” is one that many people have an instant aversion to. As it turns out, exercise need not involve a routine, if by that word we mean a series of exercises done at the same time on designated days, and in the same way. Changing things up can be very helpful in terms of keeping the activity exciting—in terms of making exercise something that we look forward to because it is disguised as something else: Play. And who doesn’t like to play?
Ideas for sporting activities can get as diverse as you like and don’t have to cost any money at all.
Here, then, are some ideas.
Organized sports: Participate in a sport that your friends are involved with or use organized team sports as a tool for making new friends.
Enjoy outings with children. They’ll certainly make you work for it! If your nieces and nephews enjoy activities such as skating or swimming, join them!
Dance: Go out! Pick your favorite night club and dance all night. Don’t sit or stand in the corner watching others who are doing it. Be the life of the party, or just fit in on the dance floor.
Take a walk in the mountains and bring your favorite mp3 player with you. Groove to the beat of your favorite tunes and forget that you are doing something that is beneficial for your health.
And finally, don’t underestimate the importance of food. But more than this, it’s not simply the type of food one eats that determines health quality. Its food safety too! Don’t put your milk on the refrigerator door, as it isn’t cold enough. Don’t put your eggs there either—it doesn’t matter if the door has a special egg compartment. Don’t leave your butter on the counter for too long, and finally, don’t eat leftover food that has been in your fridge for over three days.
Feeling great is the side effect of getting in shape. If you’re in the Oshawa area, you should look into some Oshawa fitness clubs and find one that will fit your lifestyle design. You might want to avoid the Oshawa pizza places, if you want to lose weight.
