The human body is designed to be physically active. We have however, over the course of years reduced our physical activity to the bare minimum with the advent of new-age gadgets to make daily living more convenient. Now more than ever before it is absolutely imperative that every individual participates in a fitness program in order to combat this sedentary living coupled with unhealthy eating.
As a result of all the above we find that there are several negative health effects for the people in our country. India is now the diabetic capital if the world. In 2007, 40 million people were diagnosed with diabetes and it is estimated that this figure will rise to 70 million by 2025. One in every 5 diabetics in the world is an Indian. (Diabetes Atlas 2006, International Diabetic Federation)
Increased incidence of heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, cancer, depression and obesity have been observed to be increasing exponentially especially in the urban areas. All the above are the result of changing lifestyle and health for the worse despite a better economy, better jobs, lowered maternal mortality and better facilities for living. In the race to live and experience the good life, we have neglected our own health. Ironically without good health all else, including money and property become redundant.
The need arises therefore to improve health, wellness and quality of life for everyone. A simple measure to achieve this is to include at least one hour of regular exercise into ones day.
