Daily work out reduces chances of common cold, heart diseases
Daily work out reduces chances of common cold, heart diseases: People who exercise regularly have fewer and milder colds. This practice also protects them from many dangerous diseases, including cardiac problems, experts said. A physician at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) said; “The physically active people always say that they’re sick less than sedentary people. Indeed, this boast of active people that they are sick less often is really true,” he added.
Citing a recent study, he said that researchers at a laboratory studied data on 1,002 individuals, aged 18-85, tracking upper respiratory infections and recording lifestyle, exercise, dietary patterns and stressful events. Those individuals who exercised five or more days per week not only had 46% less colds, but had a 41% lower incidence of cold symptoms. These active participants also experienced 34% fewer days of cold symptoms.
Experts suggest that regular exercise also help protect from heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, noninsulin-dependent diabetes, obesity, back pain and osteoporosis.
They recommend doing 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity three or more times a week and some type of muscle strengthening activity and stretching at least twice a week.
Doctors said that regular exercise reduces depression, anxiety and stress.
