Walking or Jogging -Just Do It!
It’s important to get out and about and do things, see attractions and visit new places. But if you are not physically fit, how will you ever be able to do this?  At some time during the year, most of us follow some form of exercise routine. This is especially true after a season of celebrations, such as Christmas. However, have you ever really thought about why it is so important to exercise, irrespective of how slim you are?  A routine of exercise will contribute to your overall well-being as well as a trimmer body, give you more energy in order to go out and do all those wonderful things to do in London have listed on this site!  Here is a list of some of the benefits of exercise:

1. When you exercise you burn calories! If you burn more calories than you consume you will start to lose weight. So, as part of losing weight it is important to factor into your routine some form of exercise, otherwise you’ll find that it is more difficult to lose weight and keep it off.  

2: If you already suffer from a minor disease such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure, exercise can actually bring these diseases under control. It can also lower the risk of acquiring certain other diseases.  Give exercise a try to day. Find activity that you enjoy doing and do one today.

3:  It has been shown that many diseases such as stroke and diabetes may be linked to a lack of exercise and a poor diet.  Some diseases increase the risk of other ailments, for example diabetes increases the risk of heart attack and strokes. Reduce your health risk by exercising. Find activities that you enjoy and start to do them on a regular basis. Take a walk around this site and find lots of free things to do that will keep you fit and active.

4. Exercise gives you a sense of well-being and will help you to be a more positive person. If you feel happy you will enjoy going out with your family, visiting attractions and doing things in London or wherever you are in the world. You will find that once you start doing things that you will not look back and start to wonder why you did not start sooner. You will also find that exercise starts to become part of your life as many things to do in many countries require you to walk or sometimes even run!

5:  How’s your mind? You need to release those endorphins.  An increase in exercise means an increase in endorphins, which means an increase in your mood. Endorphins make you feel happy as they have a chemical within them that fights stress and depression. Release those serotonin; serotonin make you feel well and they also help out to feel more relaxed which means a better sleep – more sleep means more exercise as you will not be so tired.  Are you ready? It’s time to get up and do something you like doing – exercise.

Even if it’s only 10 minutes today, you'll soon build up to half an hour.  There are many things to do in London that will keep you fit and active. You could try the exercise programme or something different, like visiting the sites of your local area and taking pictures. It does not matter what you do, just do it!
