Urban Life Versus Rural Life:
There is a huge difference between the Urban life and the rural life. In order to maintain our lifestyle and manage our expenses, we forget the most important thing, and that is us. We eat unhealthy and we do not exercise and this leads us to have excessive weight and it grows to such a level where it is difficult for us to manage it. On the other hand, if we analyze lifestyle in the rural areas, it is seen that people spend most of their time work on cultivation, so that they could eat and this is something that requires strenuous routines and keeps them fit and healthy throughout their lives and they encounter less medical problems than the people living in the urban areas.
The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that adults get 30-45 minutes of exercise three to five days each week, maintaining the intensity for the duration of the exercise. Each session should contains a 5-10 minute warm up and cool down period. If weight loss is a major goal, aerobic activity should at least 30 minutes a day for five days each week.
The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) recommends at least 60 minutes, and up to several hours of physical activity per day for children and adolescents
Children should participate in several bouts of physical activity lasting 15 minutes or more each day
It is important to choose an activity that is fun so that motivation to continue the activity will remain high
Experts say people gain a lot of weight is not that they eat a lot; it is that they do not exercise. Simple things that are needed to ensure good quality exercise every single day are listed below:
1. Ensure high Quality Sleep: absence of sleep or sleeping less leads to lethargy & sluggishness the next day, we do no feel inclined to do exercises. So to ensure to have good exercise every day, it is really important that one gets a good sleep every night. So getting adequate sleep will be a major factor in achieving good quality exercise.
2. Walking Regimen: Brisk walk is a very healthy exercise regimen and can be done very easily. For this regimen, we advise that the people must use a jogging track to walk; as hard surfaces like concrete can affect weight bearing joints adversely, which in turn would result in cessation of your exercise plan. In order to start this program, it is healthy to start with a 30 minute program for five times a week. A brisk walk is recommended to lose weight is advised by a lot of health experts.
3. Treadmill Regimen: Machines like stationary bikes, treadmills etc helps us to carry out exercise routines and lose weight. Treadmill machines have a lot of features in which one can adjust the speed of the machine according to the exercise plan for that day. The other big benefit that one can get from the treadmill machine is that there are days when we do not have time to go out and exercise and we can utilize those machines and workout on that day so that the schedule is not broken. We can listen to some light music or watch television while executing our exercise plan during that.
4. Taking out Time for Our Own Health: people usually don’t have time for exercise, forgetting that they are doing everything on the basis of their good health that is keeping them going, and it is really odd that they do not have time for their own health. One must exercise every day and not stress self to a point where he have a “turn off feeling” from exercise. One must remember that good health is a blessing not only for him and but also for his family.
