It also means that when you feel fit, you have the energy and strength to feel as good as possible. We all like to feel good and when fitness becomes a priority, our health improves.
In addition, you don’t have to be an extreme athlete to be fit.
Actually a half hour walk every day can be a stepping stone toward reaching an optimal level of fitness. There are many benefits of being fit such as having more energy for work and leisure. Also, when you feel fit, you feel more like doing things you like to do such as biking, gardening and dancing. Most importantly, when you stay active and fit, you burn up more calories and are able to exercise longer and harder without as much effort.
An additional benefit of fitness is how good it is for your lungs, heart, muscles, bones and joints. Staying fit also lowers your risk for diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure and some cancers. Also, becoming more fit may help you to handle stress better, sleep better and keep your brain healthy and sharp.
