There is very little difference between health and wellness, however, the main point of difference is that while health refers to physical wellbeing, wellness means the overall balance – mental and physical of the body. Exercise helps in attaining this balance.
4. Beat osteoporosis
Exercise acts as calcium for the bones. Regular workout helps in strengthening your bones and muscles which in turn helps in beating diseases like osteoporosis.
