Different exercises to help you get and stay fit and healthy

let your body get used to the kind of activities you will be doing regularly.

To do this, start with walking. If you are just starting out, try walking around the block for 15 to 30 minutes a day. You might walk every day, but it is generally best to aim to walk twice a week. Once you are walking for more than that, try running. If you are starting out with running, it is best to start gently to begin with. You might start in short bursts of time, and work that up over time to a few minutes, maybe half a minute, or one minute. If you like running, you can also try other exercises. There are lots of different types of sports, such as swimming, jumping rope, cycling, etc.

And, if you like these but are not an athlete, don’t worry. You can find exercise on the internet that does not involve any extra equipment at all. Such as simple exercises such as push ups, sit ups, etc. The key thing is make sure you don’t push yourself too hard. It is hard to tell what your true limits are until you start training more. I.e. I had to start out slowly when I tried rope jumping for the first time, and my heart rate would be higher than normal. So, if you start a new form of exercise like jumping rope you might like to do less of it at first.


As I mentioned above, you should not try to lose weight at the same time as doing all these exercises. One of the best things you can do for your health, and one you do not have to do much of, is to eat a healthy diet. A good diet will mean eating whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, dairy products, lean meats, and lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid anything that has a high fat content. You want to try to limit your intake of carbohydrates, i.e. sugar, and processed food, and foods with artificial ingredients. When you go out to eat, try ordering dishes without things like pizza, salad dressing, fries, or chocolate. Look for vegetables and fruit at every meal.


Eating the right kind of food, the correct way and in the right proportions will benefit your mind and body. If you don’t eat properly, your body will stop functioning as it should. Your body will not be able to absorb all the nutrients from the foods you eat. When the body is healthy, it will function at its best.
