A study reported in a British Medical Journal looked at males over 50 and found that the most active men, those who did at least 3 hours of sports or workouts per week were estimated to increase their average life expectancy by 2.3 years.
For many men, (myself included), I know sports and exercise are a great stress reliever and tends to improve my mood.
Other studies have reported the beneficial effects of exercise in reducing depression.
Mind-body medicine supports the idea that a healthy lifestyle can prevent and eliminate some of our major diseases.
To this end, I have produced a number of self help guidebooks that are easy to read and provide useful mind-body solutions to many of life’s common challenges. They are available on my products page.
