The advantages of normal exercise and active work are difficult to overlook. Everybody benefits from work out, paying little mind to age, sex or actual capacity. Need more persuading to get going?
Look at these four different ways that activity can prompt a more joyful, better you.
- IMPROVES MOOD — Exercise stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and less anxious.
- BOOST ENERGY — Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently.
- PROMOTES BETTER SLEEP — Exercise can help you fall asleep faster, get better sleep and deepen your sleep.
- COMBATS HEALTH CONDITIONS & DISEASES — Regular exercise helps prevent or manage many health problems. No matter what your current weight is, being active boosts (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol, and it decreases unhealthy triglycerides.
Set short-term goals—and reward yourself for achieving them. Try targeting a specific event, such as a road race or a walk-for-charity, to participate in—this can help keep you motivated.
