1. You’re Constipated
When you move more, your colon moves more, and it’s easier to poop on schedule. Healthy muscle tone in your abs and diaphragm is also key to moving waste through your digestive tract. Consistent exercise can help you stay regular, especially as you age.
2. Your Joints are Stiff
Achy, hard-to-move joints can sometimes be a sign of inflammatory conditions like arthritis or an autoimmune disease. But joints can also stiffen when you don’t use them enough. Put them to work so they don’t lock up and cause you pain.
