Short essay on the importance of Health and Exercise



Health and exercise are the two sides of the same coin, absolutely inseparable from each other. Let us analyse what health is. Health is, in common understanding, the name given to the correct well adjusted working of the physical system of man's body.

This involves the efficient working of all the systems of the body i.e. the nervous system, circulatory system, digestive system etc. If all these systems are working efficiently in a man's body, the man is called healthy. Now, let us consider as to what makes these systems work efficiently?

The human body is very intricate and there are so many internal organs all working as singular bodies and also coordinating the functions of all together. It is on the good and efficient working of all its organs that the health of a human body depends.

Since many important organs are internal organs and cannot be seen from outside, or can they be touched with the hand, so, the problem is, how to keep so many internal organs work efficiently and keep them trim and healthy. It is for this problem of maintaining these internal organs that, there are certain norms which, if man follows with immunity, he will remain healthy with all these organs working well and efficiently.

It is to deal with these unseen organs that are vital to man's health that exercise is said to be the best tonic, and energiser.

With a detailed plan of exercises, man can give all his organs a befitting rejuvenation on a daily basis. Exercise tones up our movements, keeps the spine straight and fit, and the digestive system perfect. The blood circulates through the body reaching out to all the parts of the body.

Asides this, when the exercise gives the heart a chance to pump faster its capacity to pump blood faster is proportionately increased. Thus, with an exercise format regularly followed, man can help keep all his organs, internal and external geared up and in absolute fitness. Exercise also tones the muscles and keeps man active.

Thus, with exercise, man provides for himself a good and perfect and sound health. Exercise and health are absolutely inseparable and are always seen going hand in hand. Exercise is also one neat and sure way of avoiding health hazards and medication.

Exercise could well be called a tonic for all times, for all people and for all ages. Once this tonic is consumed regularly on a daily basis, no other medication may ever be required.
