Warning! Lack Of Exercise Could Be Harmful To Your Heath

By Sheila Rankins

You understand it is undesirable when the Surgeon General issues a warning that lack of physical exercise is hazardous to your health. And that was back in ’96. Since then, the stats haven’t improved much, either: 25% of the American population continues to be sedentary and 60% don’t physical exercise frequently (Reference:

For fitness oriented folks, we could do worse than to comply with the “hour-a-day” prescription outlined by the Surgeon General’s Healthy People Report. It’s just a guideline, certainly and, as you already know, any amount of activity loaded into your busy schedule is going to earn you healthy benefits. But you will find plenty of other reasons to exercise.

“If individuals exercised only moderately,” says Janet Kneiss, Physical Therapist, “there would be much less incidence of injury. The 15 or so individuals I see daily, who come in with back and neck issues, usually do not want to exercise, they want a quick fix.”

The answer as she sees it?

“I think, if people could just reframe the idea of it [exercise] becoming so much work and focus much more on the enjoyment of doing it, they would discover the experience more positive.”

So, if exercise alone can keep you injury- and disease-free, how do you prevent it from being simply another thing “to-do?” Here are a couple tips:

Do something you appreciate: This sounds incredibly simple, but it’s worth mentioning. As we’ve already said, most seasoned fitness buffs as well as neophytes will be the first to tell you: should you do something you appreciate, you will stick to it. What do you like to do? Walk? Run? Spin the treadmill while you are watching the tube? Or how about branching out and trying something unique and various like kick-boxing or martial arts? It is an excellent thought to add variety; it will keep your physical exercise fresh and interesting.

“So, Laura, what’s the take home message?” you question. Don’t worry what everyone else is doing. Stay focused on you, doing what you appreciate and what is fun and exciting for you. Learn everything you can about health and fitness. Then, do the best you can. By doing so, you will be an inspiration for others. To summarize: A quote from one of my favorite inspirational writers Dr. Wayne Dyer, who says: “I don’t want to be better than anybody, I just want to be better than I was yesterday.”
