Let’s #MoveinMay For National Physical Fitness And Sports Month!
At Owens Healthcare, we are committed to helping customers lead a healthy lifestyle. We recognize that a large part of maintaining good health involves regular physical activity. That’s why we work to raise awareness in the communities we serve about the need for physical fitness. We are proud to sponsor our amateur cycling team, which competes throughout the Western states, as well as the Spring Spin Event, the annual kickoff to Shasta Bike Month.
In May, we are also celebrating National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, and encouraging everyone to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day.
Why Physical Fitness is Important & How You Can Increase Your Activity Level
There are numerous health benefits associated with physical fitness. Consistent exercise promotes heart health, builds strong bones and joints, and improves muscular fitness, while also significantly lowering the risk of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. In addition, physical activity has a positive effect on mood, helps to reduce stress, and provides an energy boost.
Any activity is better than none. So even if you have to start off slow and easy, your body will appreciate the extra movement. Your quest to be more physically fit can simply involve taking your dog for a walk, going on a bike ride with your children, lifting weights, going for a swim, or joining a dance class. If you currently have a routine exercise plan, celebrate National Physical Fitness Month by challenging yourself with different fitness goals, trying a new sport or activity for the first time, and motivating your friends and family members to join you in making a commitment to live a more active lifestyle.
Start Being Active Today!
Regardless of your age or fitness level, there is always something you can do to move your body. Join the team at Owens this month in staying healthy by integrating at least 30 minutes of physical activity into your daily routine. Together, we’ll make the North State a healthier place to live.
