Yes folks, this is 100% true, and sorry to admit that yours truly is significantly lacking in this healthy habit and has for years. My good doctor, of over twenty years, reminds me frequently about this and I always seem to find an excuse for not doing exercise.
Some key advantages of exercise (National Cancer Institute):
- Help to maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints;
- Helps control weight;
- Reduces risk of developing high blood pressure and diabetes;
- Reduces risk of death from heart disease; and
- Reduces risk of premature death.

I’m going to hire a personal trainer to help me get started and attempt to say with it for at least six months. From time to time, I’ll share with you how things are going.
