Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.


Keep exercising every day and increase your longevity. Be responsible and be around for your near and dear ones. Start exercising, start now.

I wrote this poem as a motivation to start exercising. I am trying to keep up with my exercise schedule and I hope you are too.

Exercise is easy, exercise is fun,

Exercise is great for everyone,

Run, jog, walk, run or skip,

Make sure you do at least a little bit.

Increase your exercise day by day,

Keep at it and you will find a way,

To be healthy, to be aware,

Exercise keeps you healthy,

Exercise takes care,

Exercise brings benefits,

Many benefits that are free,

Remember with exercise,

You can live long and carefree,

Free of all ailments, free of cholesterol,

Free from all aches and pains,

Be healthy and stand tall,

Get up from your couch,

And switch off the TV,

Put away your games and your PSP’s,

Run out, play and celebrate,

The benefits of exercise,

To be healthy and safe,

Exercise and be,

Benefits of Exercising

Exercise keeps you fit and healthy. Exercise helps every part of your body.

Exercising helps to

  • prevent weight gain/lose excess weight and improve overall physical health
  • build strong bones and muscles that are vital for everyday physical activities like walking, lifting, and running
  • improve circulation to your brain that in turn helps to keep the brain healthy and prevent memory loss
  • prevent the onset of chronic diseases
  • sleep well
  • release serotonin.

Serotonin is a mood stabilizer that helps to decrease depression and anxiety.

        Very true. Exercising is something we all must do for our best friend in the world -- Our own body. For professionals who have to sit for long hours, exercising becomes even more important. Not only is exercise beneficial for our physical health, but, recent studies have also shown that our brain cells benefit from it too.

        Great post, full of a lot of positivity.

        Sort is very important nowadays.It is a real medicine.It relieves stress and helps prevent illnesses such as heart disease, in an enjoyable and exciting way.

        For me,I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory! I VOTED UP!
