The Magic Pill Is . . . Exercise

I guess it is not too shocking that I would be promoting the benefits of exercise, but it really is the closest thing we have to the magic cure-all pill. I am sure Charlize Theron agrees with me.

Getting your heart rate up and strengthening your muscles not only helps you look and feel good, it lowers the risk of many dangerous health conditions. Check out this long list of health problems regular exercise can help protect us from developing:

  • heart attack
  • stroke
  • hypertension
  • type 2 diabetes
  • obesity
  • depression
  • dementia
