Motivating HIDDEN Benefits of Exercise!

Updated: Feb 25, 2021

We are going to start with the obvious, exercise helps to burn fat and build muscle…

Which equals weight loss and a stronger body! Exercise is good to maintain bone strength too. If you are looking to lose weight, don’t just go with dieting alone. (Dieting alone reduces your caloric intake, which actually lowers your metabolic rate. This is a common reason why dieters can struggle to see fast weight loss.) Diet and exercise paired together will give you faster results because the exercise will speed up your metabolic rate, burning those calories faster!

Studies show exercise can boost your mood! Exercise releases endorphins, which make us feel happier and better about ourselves. Exercise also helps change the parts of the brain that regulates stress and anxiety. With regular exercise many people report decreased feelings of depression, anxiety and daily stress.

Increase your daily energy levels! Get started with a regular routine, which might be hard at first, but you will see a difference in your energy levels! People who exercise regularly report daily less daily fatigue, and improved stamina during the day.

Exercise can reduce your risk of disease! Excess belly fat increases the risk of chronic disease, like type II diabetes and heart disease. Many people have been able to reverse their type II diabetes with regular exercise combined with a healthy diet.

Anti-aging? Exercise can help! Exercise can increase the production of your body’s natural antioxidants; this helps protect your cells and promotes healthy blood flow.

This can protect your skin and delay the appearance of aging.

Experiencing daily brain fog? Yes, exercise can help! Exercise can improve brain function, protect memory and critical thought processes. In short, when you get your heart pumping, it promotes healthy blood flow to the brain. Your brain needs that beneficial oxygen! Emerging studies are showing exercise may aid in the prevention of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Struggling to sleep at night? This might seem counterintuitive, but exercise can help promote healthy sleep patterns. Recent studies showed for some people aerobic exercise can have the same effect as a sleeping pill. Exercise also helps your natural circadian rhythm, helping you fall asleep faster when you hit the pillow!

Exercise can boost your immunity! Now, this is something we all need, a natural immune boost. Physical activity can help fight off the cold, flu and other illnesses. In addition, excess stress increases chance of illness. Exercise naturally slows the release of stress hormones, aiding in possible disease prevention.

Exercise will improve your life in so many ways. If you don't have a exercise routine, start small, try to get heart rate elevated for just 15 minutes a day. You can begin with a brisk walk in the fresh air! Stay motivated and be well~
