From long days spent in front of the computer to hours spent watching TV, Americans are moving less, and that’s bad news for their health. Not getting enough physical activity increases the risk of certain cancers, high cholesterol, and, of course, obesity, which itself can trigger hormonal imbalances and other health concerns. The good news is that it is easy to pack more activity into your days, no matter how busy your schedule is. Give these techniques a try.
Cut Back on Your Emails
If you’re like many modern workers, it’s likely that dealing with emails takes up a large chunk of your day. Your inbox is a great way to keep communication flowing with out-of-town clients and colleagues. However, instead of emailing the people down the hall, get up and go talk to them face-to-face. You may be surprised by how many extra steps you can fit into your day by moving around the office more. As an added bonus, face-to-face communication may just boost office morale and help you complete your work more efficiently.
Take a Stand
When you face a choice between grabbing a seat and standing, consider staying on your feet. Standing burns an extra 50 calories an hour over sitting, plus, prolonged periods of standing help to build your leg muscles. Huddle around a high table with co-workers for meetings or consider changing to a standing desk. Even if you can’t stand for long portions of the day, getting up and standing for five minutes once an hour will help.
Your parents and teachers probably taught you not to fidget as a child, but refusing to sit still is good for your health as an adult. Move your legs, pace when you’re on the phone, and balance on an exercise ball instead of sitting in a chair. These extra movements will keep you energized and burn calories.
Balanced hormones are also crucial for healthy energy levels and weight. Gary London, M.D. can diagnose hormone deficiencies and boost your wellbeing with hormone therapy. Find out how hormones can help you by calling our West Hollywood office for an appointment at (424) 230-7776.

Aging is a natural part of life, but sometimes, people feel older than they actually are. Maintaining healthy habits throughout your life is an important part of the anti-aging process. No matter how old you are, it’s a good idea to stay active to improve your physical, mental, and social wellbeing. People in their 40s and 50s may want to consider joining a local Beverly Hills sports league to meet people and get fit at the same time, while those in their 60s and 70s may opt for more relaxed activities such as golf or yoga. If you feel like you’ve lost a step even though you’re physically active, it may be time to consider how hormone therapy can help you with anti-aging. Take a look at this infographic to see more ways you can maintain healthy habits at any age. Please share with your friends and family!

It is never too late to get yourself into shape; exercise provides a variety of health benefits and increases your energy, alertness, and quality of life. Fitness is one of several anti-aging elements that can help you live to your fullest throughout your entire life. Keep reading to learn about the importance of fitness during middle age.
Onset of Disease
Chronic diseases are an unfortunate result of years of certain habits, diets, and vices. However, there are several factors that influence the length of time that individuals live with these conditions. Staying fit can help to prolong the onset of diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Instead of spending the last several decades of your life suffering from a chronic disease, fitness can help reduce that time frame to the last few years.
Those who are in better shape during middle age are likely to live longer than those who are in poor shape. In addition, those who are fit during these years are likely to live with a higher quality of life. Although you cannot stop aging, staying fit helps you to enjoy the years after retirement and truly relax. Fitness increases your lifespan on different levels; whether you consider your lifespan to be the day you are born until the day you die, or the day you are conscious until the day you can no longer function on your own, fitness increases both timeframes.
Effect of Exercise
Even if you do not go into middle age in the best shape, it is not too late to reap the benefits of fitness. Exercise is one of the most efficient anti-aging techniques and can be done in any environment and at any time. Exercising while you age is a critical way to increase your lifespan as well as your quality of life.

As you age you may notice fatigue, weight change, and other issues that are associated with a decrease in your hormones.There are several ways you can combat this process. Here are a few simple steps to getting your energy back.
If fatigue is one of your main issues with aging, consider your sleeping habits. People who go to sleep earlier are better prepared to enjoy a full night of sleep. This can provide a variety of health benefits including increased energy. When you feel tired during the day, try taking a 10 minute nap. It is important to stay in tune with your rhythms; determine if you are a morning person or a night person and make the most of your energy during those times.
Your diet plays an important role in your energy levels. Whole grains and certain carbohydrates can help to stabilize your blood sugar and digest slowly. Omega-3 oils provide a host of benefits; they increase both vigor and alertness, which are important components of energy. You can also help yourself get your energy back by losing weight. In addition to vigor, losing weight can lead to better mood and quality of life. Try eating smaller portions more frequently throughout the day. Always remember to stay hydrated in order to promote concentration and alertness.
Although you may feel tired after exercising, the movement will boost your energy levels in general. Exercise helps to bolster your lungs, heart, and muscles all over your body. You do not necessarily have to run 10 miles or participate in contact sports; yoga has been shown to increase confidence, energy, and clear-mindedness. If you are feeling the effects of aging, try committing to yoga once or twice each week.
