You hear that it’s good for you. You hear that you should, but it takes effort and time. Exercise, at least 30 minutes a day 5 days a week is good for you. So good that it helps prevent or delay the major issues that most of us will face when we grow older: heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. I’ve been exercising since my early twenties since my mother was diagnosed with heart disease and needed a by-pass in her early 50’s. She smoked, I have never, however this was enough of a wake up call that I didn’t want to be in her shoes in my early 50’s. Fortunately for me, it’s become a habit. There are still days when I have to drag myself to the gym, but when my workout is finished and I’m leaving, I’m glad I went.
