Exercise helps people to keep their weight at an optimal level and can help to lower the risk of some diseases. Exercising to maintain a healthy weight decreases a person’s risk of developing certain diseases, including type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

What are the benefits of regular exercise? It tends to increase appetite, reduce constipation, and promote quality sleep. The benefits of exercise diminish within months after a person stops exercising. Heart strength, muscle strength, and the level of HDL cholesterol decrease, whereas blood pressure and body fat increase.
 

The importance of good posture cannot be stressed enough in modern times. It extends far beyond our outward appearance and aesthetics. Posture refers to our body’s alignment and positioning with respect to gravity. Gravity exerts a force on our joints, ligaments and muscles whether we are standing, sitting or lying down. Good posture distributes this force through our body with minimal muscular effort and so that no one structure is overstressed. Sitting or standing with proper postural alignment allows us to work more efficiently with less fatigue and strain on our body’s ligaments and muscles.
