Can exercise really help you live longer and lift depression?

22/08/2010

Exercise really can help you live a longer, more enjoyable life!

There is abundant evidence to support this.

This was the results of a study done on a large group of our “more senior” members of society. In this study, undertaken over 8 yearsin the US – researchers assessed the association between exercise capacity and all-cause mortality in 5314 males aged 65 to 92 years

The results showed that unfit individuals, who improved their exercise capacity over the 8 year period of the study, had a 35% lower risk of death compared with those who remained physically unfit.

This study is important because given that the populations of Australia & the US are rapidly ageing, to increase the health of the populace and reduce the morbidity rate would only require a moderate increase in fitness levels and, they stressed, that such fitness levels can be achieved with just 20 to 40 minutes of brisk (for the age group) daily exercise.

Does Exercise really improve the quality of life?

As we all know, exercise not only improves your overall health, but quality of life is also drastically improved. Happier, Healthier people leading more active, fruitful, meaningful enjoyable lives with less pain and less illness – why wouldn’t you want that?
