The importance of exercise in protecting human health cannot be underestimated, and its value to middle-aged adults is particularly evident. Regular exercise provides adults with a host of benefits, including fighting depression, heart disease, diabetes, and many different kinds of cancer: especially colon and breast cancer (Harvard Medical School, 2018).

According to Harvard Medical School (2018), regular exercise for only 30 minutes daily can prevent the onset of heart disease and reduce the chances of death for those who have already developed heart disease. In addition, regular exercise reduces the incidence of hypertension and diabetes (Harvard Medical School, 2018). For those with developed diabetes, regular exercise can manage the symptoms of the condition (Harvard Medical School, 2018). Regular exercise is an excellent remedy for depression and the protection against cognitive decline in later years (Harvard Medical School, 2018). It also strengthens the bones and prevents the loss of muscle density (Harvard Medical School, 2018).

When considering what kind of activities healthcare providers should recommend, the age, health status, and physical capability of each patient should be considered. Recommended exercises should include weight training; flexibility exercises; cardiovascular activities, such as running, brisk walking, and swimming; and biking. Patients should be encouraged to burn an additional 700 to 1000 calories during weekly exercise.

Education is the best approach to encourage patients to participate in exercise because there is a better chance of commitment when patients understand the value of exercise in protecting their health in mitigating the impact of existing health conditions. In addition to the well-documented beneficial health effects of exercise, I can personally attest to its value in fighting depression, managing stress, and creating a general sense of well-being.
