YOGA: Yoga improves health in the following ways
Getting used to breathe in and out through the nose taking in fuller deep breaths which stimulate the lower tongue to distribute greater amounts of oxygen to the body.
Yoga also sharpens your balance, coordination, concentration, and body awareness — and thus helps prevent falls.
It helps strengthen and stretch muscles and therefore minimize injury.
It trains the mind to focus internally, creating a balanced mind.
- GOLF: The walking, and chasing balls lost in the rough, means plenty of work for your hips and spine. Golf is atypical example of weight-bearing exercise
- DANCING: improved condition of your heart and lungs

- RACQUET SPORTS: Tennis, squash, and paddle tennis can rally your bone density. You’re stressing your racquet arm, wrist, and shoulder every time you hit the ball, and working your hips and spine with all that running around — and chasing down wild balls.
If you’re going for racquet sports, go for singles. You’ll get a lot more from your workout in terms of bone health, since you’ll be running around more.
- STRENGTH TRAINING: Lifting weight are forms of strength or resistance training. You’re working against some form of resistance — whether it’s a set of “free” weights, your own body weight, or weight machines — to stress a sequence of muscles and bones. Strength training at least twice a week, says the surgeon general, is needed to stimulate bone growth. Your design is going to be based on your fitness level.
- CARDIO: Sweating it out for 20 to 40 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical might be the only kind of cardio you’re familiar with, but it won’t necessarily impact your metabolic rate. Consider adding an anaerobic exercise – like sprinting or jumping – when you’re done with an aerobic activity, which brings your exercise to a more intense level and boosts your metabolism in the process.
- BRISK WALKING: A brisk walk is a relative term, since “brisk” for some, is either slow or quite speedy for others, depending on levels of fitness.
One measure to quantify brisk walking is “steps per minute,” and 100 steps per minute is considered moderate intensity or brisk walking. Fitness experts typically suggest a pace of 3.5 miles/hour on a treadmill to correlate to brisk walking, for an average person who does not exercise regularly.
- It reduces the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
- It can help you lose weight and reduce the risk of obesity.
- 10 minutes of walk everyday helps to lower blood pressure.
