Skinny People Have to Exercise Too
Not many people are blessed with the perfect slim and slender body. But even if you are one of those who do not have to fight and sweat for the perfectly shaped body, regular exercise and a healthy diet should not seem strange to you. There is a misconception that exercise is only for those who try to lose weight or for athletes.
Have you heard about the expression ‘skinny fat’? A skinny fat is the person who has a slender body but is not necessarily healthy too. Many of those who do not get fat do not pay attention to what they eat. They are living with the impression that they do not need exercise and so, they ignore the things that could help them lead a healthy life.
Why do skinny people have to exercise too?
Regardless of the body size, weight and shape, we need to exercise in order to have a healthy, happier and longer life. Stress, unhealthy diet and a sedentary life could lead to various chronic diseases, such as depression, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, high blood pressure and even cancer.
So here are some of the reasons for which skinny people should exercise too:
– To maintain a healthy mind & body
– To lower the risk for disease and viruses and boost the immune system
– Build strength and endurance
– To get energy, sleep better, be more alert during the day
– Decrease the risk for anxiety and depression
– Avoid potential weight gain
