Benefits Of Green Exercise

Exercise and relaxation should be included in the daily lifestyle. The best thing would be that you can exercise in the open, in the morning air. Breathing in fresh air helps in delivering oxygen to the tissues. Start your day with a 10-minute stretching exercise or a brisk walk. Then do deep breathing exercises for 5 minutes. Of course, moderation should be the key. Do not exercise outside the door, or be in extreme sunlight, in extreme heat or extreme cold.

Exercise has an overall revitalizing effect. It improves circulation, strengthens the body, eliminates toxins and wastes and also helps in reducing stress. As far as looks are concerned, a slim figure can take years and helps to stay young for a long time. It supplies oxygen to every tissue and paves the way for both health and beauty.
