How Exercising Can Give You Superpowers!

Posted on: August 9th, 2013 by Chris No Comments

superpowersWe all know how important exercise can be to our daily lives. It keeps us healthy, trim and full of energy. Recently I read an article by Natalie Gingerich MacKenzie who wrote this article for Walgreens. She compared exercising to having superpowers! And it’s such a great analogy! Because those who do exercise regularly do have superpowers.

Here are a few of Gingerich MacKenzie’s observations:

Superpower: A brain faster than a speeding bullet
Those who exercise regularly give their brains a boost. Superman was faster than a speeding bullet, and smarter than one too. So if you exercise more, you will sharpen your mind.

Superpower: A heart that can take a licking and keep on ticking
Exercise is not only good for the brain but good for the heart. We know exercise can improve your heart health but even just walking three or more hours a week can cut a woman’s risk of heart disease by up to 40%. That is super!

Superpower: Joints of steel
Some of us won’t exercise because it hurts our joints. But the irony is that exercise will actually help your joints and keep you from injuring them further.

Superpower: Time travel (the ability to turn back the clock)
We would all like to find the fountain of youth. But the truth is we will all get older. But it doesn’t mean our bodies have to get older. Exercise can make us younger and give us back a few more years.

Superpower: The ability to withstand a sugar bomb
It’s proven that exercise can help curb your appetite. It works the same for sugar. Feeling good about yourself and eating better will help fight off those cravings. Regular exercise helps regulate blood sugar and prevent diabetes in those at risk.

There is so much more to this idea!  And honestly I feel like I have had an “aha moment”.  I get this, I understand why everyone talks about exercise the way they do.  I think it’s time I earned some superpowers.  You owe it to yourself to find yours too.  And start teaching your kids now to look at exercise as a superpower!
