Ok, so someone beat me to it and posted this article in the Facebook group, but I’m going with it anyway!

This article from Time, Not Exercising May Be Worse for Your Health Than Smoking, Study Says, details a study from the Cleveland Clinic that “found a clear connection between a longer, healthier life and high levels of exercise. The report calls for health care professionals to encourage patients to achieve and maintain a robust fitness routine.”

“Although it is widely understood that an active lifestyle can lead to a healthy life, the study concludes that a sedentary lifestyle is the equivalent of having a major disease and the simplest cure is exercise.”

That’s right, not exercising and being sedentary can have the same effect as having a major disease!

You don’t have to do CrossFit and you don’t have to follow a Paleo diet, but please do something. I know most of you reading this are already on board, but this is an article worth sharing with people you love.

If you have a friend or family member that smoked, I bet you have tried to help that person stop more than once. Have you helped your friends and family find an exercise routine they like? Now is the time. Don’t wait until someone is sick, keep spreading the word of health and fitness!
