Getting Your Body Prepared

One of the important aspects of being a prepper is preparing for your future. This does include your food storage and other preparedness items. It also includes your health. Staying healthy and in shape will increase your quality of life, and your life span. Most Americans get little to no exercise. This is probably why America has the largest number of obese people than any country in the world. Also due to the poor diet of most Americans.

I know it's hard to eat the best diet due to our fast and busy lives but by just cutting out fast foods and sugary snacks you're going to do yourself a lot of good. And by getting 20-30 minutes of physical exercise each day you're going to improve your health and overall well being. Low stress exercises like walking or riding a bicycle are a great ways to get in your daily physical activity and burn a few pounds.

Physical exercise is also a great way to relive stress. Most of us work all day couped up in an office somewhere and don't get the outdoors time we need. Going for a walk or jog after a long day at work will make you feel 10 times better and make you forget about all the problems from work. Getting out and exercising will allow you to get your daily dose of Vitamin D; which is critical to a healthy body and healthy immune system. If you spend 15-20 minutes outdoors in direct sunlight each day your body will produce all the Vitamin D it needs.

Getting exercise will also benefit you if you are in a situation that you have to put your survival skills to the test. If you have to hike home with your get home bag you will be happy you spent 30 minutes each afternoon exercising. Getting daily exercise makes you feel better overall. You get a chance to get out of the house and away from the television or computer. Try it out for a week. Let me know if your overall attitude improves and you feel a lot better.
