Don’t Just Exercise for Your Waistline: Exercise for Your Vision

Eye Care & Eye Exam in Clarkston, MINow that bikini and swimsuit season is here; exercise is a must. But, exercising isn’t just going to help you get that waistline you’ve been wanting, but it can help your vision as well. The more sedentary you are, the more likely you are to develop eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. To help you stay in shape this summer, we have a few easy tips.

Track Your Steps

Watches like Fit-Bits and Apple Watches aren’t just popular because they look cool. One of the things that made these watches so popular was because of their ability to track your steps. By setting a goal to get 10,000 steps per day, you can increase your daily activity by doing things like walking on your lunch break rather than sitting down for the entire time. When you are tracking it on your watch, it will also send you reminders to get up and moving so that you can make your goal every day.

Get Outside

Summertime is the perfect time to do more things outside and fewer things in front of the TV. Whether you enjoy gardening, playing with your kids, or going on walks, there are plenty of active things for you to do outside. Plus, a little bit of Vitamin D never hurt either. Just make sure that you wear some sunglasses.

You Will See a Difference

The fun thing about exercise is that you will literally see a difference if you keep it up and we aren’t just talking about seeing the weight drop on the scale; we are also talking about seeing a difference in your eye health.
