Make a run for healthier life!

Before the age of automobiles and computers, humans used to lead physically active lives. We needed to hunt or farm our food, and needed to migrate from one place to another for better food or shelter or safety. Our bodies have evolved to  to sweat, shed fats and sustain muscle strength regularly. Due to centuries of such conditioning, physical fitness has become the key to a healthy life. So how do you achieve this? You can run, walk, or do any kind of work-out for at least a few minutes in a day. Many of you think ‘time’ is the biggest hurdle; but if you could once experience the joy that physical activities bring you, you would never part from it.

If you could adapt to juggling with the daily commitments for all other reasons, wouldn’t you want to set aside a minimum 10 minutes every morning for yourself? Keeping yourself fit means a combination of physical activities that include exercises of different types walking and running.

There are many streak runners who have been running at least one mile a day for as long as 40 continuous years.  The most important thing about these streakers who are so passionate about running is that they all lead healthy lives. They are far away from obesity, and have been able to regulate their blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Apart from staying fit and in shape, they all enjoy  high energy levels and a fantastically positive attitude towards life.
