You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood to improving your private life, find out how exercise can improve your life inside and out. Have more energy while feeling better at the same time! The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Check out these Top 6 ways that you can benefit from a regular routine of exercise.
No. 1: weight control
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits.
No. 2: Combat Health Issues
Heart disease, High blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular problems. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
No. 3: Improves Mood
Depressed? Need an emotional lift? A workout at our facility can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
No. 4: Energy Boosts
Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
No. 5: Better Sleep
Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.
No. 6: Personal Life
Do you feel too tired to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized which may have a positive effect on your personal life. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced emotional response for women during intimacy and men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with intimacy problems.
Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. In addition exercise can be a fun way to spend some time as it gives you a chance to unwind from the stresses of life.
