It’s a simple, though unexpected, equation. After all, once you’ve completed a
long day of work, errands, housework, cooking and taking care of your family,
exercise is probably about the last thing you’d choose for an energy boost.
The truth is, exercise dials up your body’s demand for energy. In turn, your
body rises to the challenge and produces more. Exercise also speeds oxygen
and nutrients to your cells, making your cardiovascular system work more
efficiently. The result? An energy surplus. Researchers say that even for people
coping with conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, regular
exercise can increase energy levels.
Need an energy boost?
l
Take a brisk 15-minute walk.
l
Do a few minutes of gentle stretching.
l
Play a physical game you enjoy, such as tennis or Wii™ bowling.
l
Go for a jog or bike ride.
l
Watch your favorite TV show while you work out on the elliptical
machine or treadmill.
l
Take an aerobics or karate class.
l
Even if you feel too tired to do anything, simply get up and walk
around the room.
