Health risks of no exercise

There are many health risks of inactivity. People that do not regularly exercise have a much greater health risk of developing certain illnesses and conditions. The health risks of inactivity include an elevated one of developing heart disease, heart attacks and strokes, high blood pressure, cancers, diabetes, osteoporosis, risks of obesity and more injuries. The health risks of inactivity also include the fact that energy levels in people that do not regularly take physical activity are generally lower and fatigue is therefore more of a problem for these people.

Stress levels are also higher in people that tend not to indulge in frequent exercise and anxiety and depression are often associated with those lacking physical activity on a regular basis as well. I you do not lead an active lifestyle at the moment then you should really consider the implications of an unhealthy lifestyle and try to be more physically active as the benefits to your health and fitness levels are immense when you're frequently exercising.

You do not have to go to the gym or join expensive health and fitness clubs in order to be more active either! You can simply walk to the shops, cycle to work or just do the housework and gardening.
