Exercise Provides Health Benefits

It may sound obvious but a recent study found being fit while being younger can lead to lower risk of heart attacks and stroke.  The study found that young adults (between 18-30 year olds) who are physically fit and exercise regularly end up with much lower chance of heart disease and stroke.  They measured fitness based on how the participants ran on a treadmill.  

This is yet another reason why it’s so important to carve out time for yourself during the holiday season.  As you get busier, often exercise and eating well fall to the wayside. Taking the time to ensure you are caring for yourself, makes sure your able to care for others.  So take some time today to look at your calendar and see where you can fit in some sessions. Make sure you prioritize YOU! It’s not just feeling great now, its for your long term health and reducing your risk of future heart disease!
