We know that the majority of you reading this article right now has joined the gym but there may be some of you who haven’t and who are looking for that extra bit of motivation.
We know that there are days even when the majority of you won’t feel like going to the gym to workout or do any physical activity. Performing a physical activity at least for half an hour a day isn’t only an added bonus but it’s something which is as essential for the human body as much as daily activities like brushing your teeth, taking a bath and other daily activities that you perform.
Physical activities don’t only just change the physical appearance but also improves mental health and the metabolism of an individual. We are sure you don’t want to be looked after when you grow old or take a mobility scooter to the local grocery store.

You won’t become an Olympic champion in a matter of days, but just the process of doing a physical activity should be taken up as a challenge and, who knows, one day you might become one. What people don’t realize is that how much those 30 minutes to an hour of physical activity helps one to relieve stress — both physically and mentally and how slowly it becomes a habit.
