Needless to say, Exercise is very important for us to get healthy & stay healthy. Although there are so many scientific researches that point to and show the many physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits to exercise and activity, many who’ve never read any of these reports are well aware that this is a beneficial practice. In fact, if we sat around, lay around all the time, and never move around, soon our muscles would be wasted away and we’d start suffering from conditions like depression and even constipation. We would perhaps also suffer from poor immunity as the lymphatic system requires movement to function effectively.
Some folks do a little exercise, and some folks do too much. Too much exercise can perhaps be as detrimental to our health as too little exercise. Here are a few health risks related to over-exercise or too much exercise:
Low energy and feeling tired most times or all the time. Anxiety, depression, unable to sleep. Lowered immune systems which may cause you to get sick often. Muscle pain and muscle fatigue.
Rhabdomyolysis is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that can result from too much and too intense exercise. This condition can lead to Kidney failure and even subsequent death.
Moderation is always the key and one should drink lots of water when we venture on the healthy habit of exercising. More is not always better.
