As a society, we often associate exercise with weight loss and muscle building. The reality is that it can do so much more for your mental and physical health. Exercise helps release endorphins which make you feel better about yourself, reduce stress levels, improve sleep quality, and manage chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, headaches or fibromyalgia. Regular exercise also improves your moods by lowering the risk of depression or anxiety disorders. In addition to these benefits, there are many other reasons to start exercising today!
- Improves cardiovascular fitness: Boosts heart rate and strengthens bones and muscles
- Increases energy: Increases blood flow throughout the body which energizes cells and increases productivity
- Improves cardiovascular health by getting more blood pumping through your veins. This lowers cholesterol levels, prevents clots from forming in blood vessels, raises good cholesterol while lowering bad cholesterol, and even reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Remember that exercise is not just for losing weight or building muscle. It can do so much more for your mental and physical health! So go on, make the commitment to start exercising today and feel better tomorrow.
