The aim of physical exercise is for physical fitness and overall good health. Everybody knew this but why many don’t engage in physical exercise while they are healthy could not be clearly traced.

The above was why Campusaga Media took a survey with a population of 100  of ages 18 to  45 in Nsukka, South-East Nigeria. The survey traced apathy to physical exercise to laziness with procrastination.  While 90 persons of the population answered nothing, 10 persons were due to the schedule of their works.

However, the work schedule is not considered a significant factor because one can exercise at any time of the day that best works for one. Even though exercise in the morning has been linked to greater productivity, lower blood pressure and better sleep. According to Dave Smith  a professional weight-loss coach and founder of – Make Your Body Work, “the best time is the time that will help you be compliant and consistent with your workouts.”

All said regular exercise is very important. Don’t neglect it.

Health Benefits of Excercise

It helps you burn body fat.

It helps to build muscle mass.

It strengthens the bones to enhancing memory.

Exercise improves cardiovascular health.

It beefs up the immune system.

It also reduces stress.

Exercise enhances sleep.

It boosts confidence.

So, it enhances the general health of body and mind.

Unarguably, exercise is important to everyone because everyone wants to be healthy.

If you are among those who could not trace why they are not in the habit of keeping fit and maintaining good health through exercise, here are the tips:

Tips to Overcoming Laziness for Physical Excercise

Start today because procrastination is laziness.

Don’t wait till you get a sports kit that looks so fine and appealing. Looking good in your outfit is fine but it doesn’t contribute anything to keeping fit. Get the basic outfit and start.

You may not have money to pay for a gym or join a group, but remember there are those that do their workouts alone. Encourage yourself.

Find out a  place or free sports rendezvous in your locality and join others to exercise yourself. Seeing others doing it will propel the habit in you. Watch the video above as an example.

Aerobics in your house is a good idea if you can be regular with it. Most of the music on your phone is good for aerobics. Dance or develop steps for them and you see how motivated that can be.

You feel body pains after the first day that can make you want to I say I won’t go again. Ignore it. It is just temporal. Get ready for the next day and soon the pains would disappear and you will see how flexible you will be.

Pick it from there and you are good to go all the time

Health is wealth

According to Noma Nazish that writes for food culture and wellness and as provided by the Department of Health and Human Services, “a healthy adult needs at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) to 300 minutes (5 hours) of moderate aerobic activity per week (like brisk walking) or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) to 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity (think swimming, running, hiking. etc.), or “an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity aerobic activity”.
