Health and fitness

Considering the benefits to the heart, muscles, joints, and mind, it's easy to see why exercise is wise. This is often the biggest exercise challenge for people as they get busy with college and careers. One of the great things about exercise is that it's never too late to start. And don't forget that even small things can count as exercise when you're starting out - like taking a short bike ride or raking leaves. Even walking your dog counts as part of your 60 minutes a day of exercise.

And do not forget:
Women who overexercise may stop getting their periods, a condition known as amenorrhea. Girls who regularly miss periods are less able to incorporate calcium into their bones, which can lead to the decreased bone density and increased risk of injury that goes with osteoporosis. The combination of amenorrhea, disordered eating, and osteoporosis is a condition called female athlete triad.
