There’s nothing healthier than exercise, right? It lowers blood pressure and blood sugar, reduces heart disease and cancer risk, improves blood flow, straightens posture, strengthens bone, improves lung function, improves sleep, prevents depression, prevents obesity and reduces stress levels.
Even better, exercise is a medically researched and proven fountain of youth. So the more the better, right? However, just like all good things, too much, or the wrong kind, has the potential to be harmful. In fact, it’s actually possible to hurt yourself and even risk your health.
