A sedentary life is particularly harmful for our muscles and general health. When it comes to the muscle issue, as we all know, our muscles begin to lose their former strength as we get older, especially if we live a sedentary life, it means we have swallowed the pill. If you say it is almost impossible for me to be active due to my job, then our suggestion is to stand up and act every hour.
For this, first of all, it is necessary to consume fresh vegetables and fruits in abundance and avoid processed foods. When these processed foods are preferred, the stress rate of the person increases. With the increase in muscle, the body naturally starts to burn more calories. Of course, it is very important to be fit for a long life.
“We need proteins for muscle building. But as we age, our bodies begin to use only a few of these proteins. Regardless of your age or fitness level, there are many benefits of weight training." says Dr. Josep Mercola.
”Weight training gives you lean muscle mass. For this reason, it helps you to lose weight by allowing you to consume more calories over time. It makes your muscles stronger and equipped.

Maintaining and increasing bone density is one of the best things you can do to prevent osteoporosis. It helps you maintain your muscle mass. If you do not do strength exercises, you will lose an average of 5 percent of muscle mass every 10 years. (After the age of 35, women lose 1 kg in each decade and men lose 1.5 kg.) Resistance training for only 30 minutes a week has an anti-aging effect and this will make you about 2 years younger." says Prof. Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Water is one of the main fluids to be consumed. When the body is dehydrated, electrolyte is lost. So if we think that our muscles are controlled by nerves, when the body doesn't get enough water, the muscles don't get enough electrolytes. In short, water is absolutely essential for your health, then your muscles.
We've talked enough about the muscles, what about our spiritual balance? By this we mean to create our mental exercise awareness. Games such as puzzles and sudoku can be useful to keep our brains active and strong. Therefore, the body and the brain must be equally active.
