The Miracle Therapy

What would you say if your doctor told you that there is one thing you can do every day to help:

  1. Regulate your blood sugar
  2. Lower blood pressure
  3. Reduce your risk for diabetes and heart disease
  4. Maintain healthy muscles, bones and joints
  5. Slow the deteriorating effects of aging
  6. Improve your overall mood
  7. AND keep your mind sharp and potentially ward off dementia

Also, there really aren’t any harmful side effects and it won’t cost you a thing. You’d want to know more about it and how you can get your hands on it, right?

So now what would you say if I told you that every single one of you has access to this miracle therapy, but that more than a quarter of American adults disregard it?

Pretty crazy, right?

Exercise: the miracle therapy

If you haven’t figured it out already, what I’m referring to is exercise – and according to this recent HealthDay article published on the Department of Health and Human Services’ website, if you want to achieve the above benefits, you should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity in each week (or 75-minutes of vigorous physical activity).

Think you don’t have that much time? You’re not alone … but you should still think again.

You can read the full article to find more tips for fitting in exercise. But the bottom line, according to one of the article’s experts, is that “We’re busy because we choose to do certain things. It’s about making different choices.”

So … what choices are you going to make differently? How are you going to ensure you get some of that miracle therapy?
