#Why fitness is necessary?

Take up one idea at a time.

Friends, In the present circumstances, Fitness has become a buzzword in the world today, and for good reason. Maintaining good health and fitness has become increasingly important as we lead increasingly sedentary lifestyles and indulge in unhealthy habits.

Today, we will explore the reasons why fitness is necessary, not just for physical health but also for mental and emotional well-being.

Physical health benefits

The benefits of exercise and physical activity for overall health are well established. Regular exercise can help prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and obesity.

It also helps to improve muscle strength and endurance, bone density, and flexibility. Exercise can also help to reduce the risk of falls and injuries in older adults like me. That is why I do morning exercise on regular basis to keep myself fit.

Mental health benefits

The benefits of exercise and physical activity go beyond just physical health. Regular exercise has been shown to have a positive impact on our mental health as well.
Exercise can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and improve mood and overall well-being. It has also been shown to improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults.

Emotional well-being benefits

Physical activity has been shown to improve emotional well-being by reducing feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. Exercise can also help to improve self-esteem, confidence, and overall sense of well-being. It has also been shown to be an effective tool for managing emotions and improving emotional regulation.

Social benefits of fitness

Physical activity can also have social benefits. Joining a fitness class or group can provide an opportunity to meet new people and form social connections. This can be particularly beneficial for those who may be feeling isolated or lonely. Senior citizens are more likely to suffer isolation and loneliness.

Yes, It can provide us with a sense of community and belonging, which is important for overall well-being.

Tips for maintaining fitness:

Maintaining fitness doesn’t have to be difficult as I am doing so. I would like to share  some tips to help you get started:

Find an activity you enjoy

The key to maintaining fitness is finding an activity that you enjoy. This can be anything from walking to yoga to weightlifting. Find something that you enjoy and stick with it.

I do Yoga in the morning along with swimming.

Set realistic goals

Set realistic goals for yourself. This can be as simple as going for a 30-minute  morning walk on daily basis. As you become more comfortable with the activity, you can increase the intensity or duration.

Make it a habit

Make fitness a part of your daily routine.  It is necessary to set aside time each day for physical activity and make it a priority.

Mix it up

Don’t do the same activity every day. Mix it up to keep things interesting and to challenge your body in different ways. Yes, I am mixing different activities like Yoga, walking, swimming, and playing TT in my allotted fitness time. That keeps me fit and never gets bored.

Get support

Find a workout buddy who can join you with physical exercise and help motivate each other. We can join a fitness class to help you stay motivated and accountable.


Fitness is necessary not just for physical health, but also for mental and emotional well-being. Regular exercise and physical activity can help to prevent chronic diseases, improve muscle strength and endurance, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall well-being.

With the right mindset and approach, maintaining fitness can be an enjoyable and rewarding part of daily life.
