Living an active lifestyle is a choice.
Many reduce the benefit of exercise to solely weight loss and judge exercise buffs to have an obsession with physical looks. They fail to see the other benefits of regular exercise in one’s life. To name a few, exercise reduces the risk of heart diseases; it manages blood sugar and insulin levels; it improves one’s mental health; helps in sharpening the mind’s thinking, learning, and judgment skills; it strengthens the bones and muscles; it improves sleep and adds numbers to your years on Earth. Not only that, but exercise also helps you live a better quality of life free from vices and mostly surrounded by people who also value their health.
Having good health helps one interact better with others, see and experience more of the world. Why wouldn’t one want to exercise then? One of the most common reasons is lack of time. Since exercise is not seen as a necessity, people don’t actively make time for it. But if you look at it closely, lots of our hours a day go to scrolling on social media or watching our favorite series. There is probably time but a lack of motivation to break a sweat because exercises cause tension in the body and one has to go through strenuous pain before the endorphins kick in.
So we go back to our first point, living an active lifestyle is a choice. If you want a better life, consider committing to an exercise routine that you will be able to sustain. One answer to that is investing in a desk bike or a folding treadmill. These two pieces of equipment can be used simultaneously as you work. It won’t take up extra time but give you the benefits of exercise as well as a heightened and alert mind to focus on your work for the day. The company FlexiSpot has always had the mission of improving people’s lives so it made sure to have desk bikes, and more recently, folding treadmills in its catalog.
