Joseph Benevento: Everyone needs to incorporate fitness into their daily lifestyle. Sedentary people are at greater risk for heart and cardiovascular problems, joint problems, and diabetes. Staying in shape means that you will live longer and be more satisfied with your daily life.
It can be daunting to start a fitness plan. Rather than going all in, it’s a good idea to start slow and to work your way up to a more rigorous schedule . First, try incorporating more movement into your daily routine. Stand as much as possible when you would normally sit. Do exercises while you are watching TV. Take the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Incorporate stretches and strength moves throughout the day, like squatting when you pick something up off the floor. These little changes can add up to a great start on your healthier lifestyle.
