Short on Cash?  Exercise!

The research is in.

Studies have shown that:

If we walked 30 minutes most days we would likely save $2,500 annually on medical costs related to heart disease.

Exercise was shown to prompt muscles to release substances that wind up changing brain cells in ways that increase neuron numbers. Blood flow to the learning and memory portions of the brain increase with exercise. The ability to think clearly and focus may improve intelligence and lead to higher paying jobs.

Lazy white fat cells may be converted to metabolically active brown fat cells after exercising allowing usto burn more calories and look and feel great. No need to by new clothes if you keep your weight under control, more savings!

Gut microbes could be altered positively to aid in weight control with exercise. Decreasing your risks for Type II Diabetes and the health costs associated with it.

Regular exercise will reduce the risks of chronic health conditions such as depression, high blood pressure, some cancers and colds. Spending less money on therapists and medication puts more money in your pocket.

So this year, strive for good health by exercising all the while adding to your bank account.
