In general, adults in the early stages of this age bracket have plenty of stamina and the body is fairly resilient to the various rigors it may be put through. Eating poorly, keeping late hours at work or out on the town, and not exercising regularly don't seem to take their toll – well, nothing that a good old fashioned hangover remedy or a dose of ibuprofen can’t cure!
However, what you do to your body today will definitely have an impact on you in later life - especially if you have a predisposition to certain illnesses like diabetes and hypertension. Now is the time to start laying the groundwork for the future by establishing healthy lifestyle habits!
Life transitions like moving away from home, starting a new job, making new friends and business alliances, menopause or trying to meet the demands of marriage and parenthood can trigger anxiety and depression.
And physical exercise has several benefits which are not necessarily linked to the more obvious advantages such as keeping fit and weight loss. There is strong evidence to suggest that exercise can help a range of mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, negative moods and low self-esteem.
Whatever stage of life you’re at regular exercise is an effective medication and can lead to a boost in confidence as well as providing a healthy social life.
