Exercise is good for you. We all know that. We also know that it helps make you stronger, fitter, more youthful and active. The benefits are immense, and I am glad to note that more and more people understand that commitment to fitness goes beyond just weight loss or as ‘because the doctor said so’. Exercise is a commitment to YOURSELF to take care of the body that allows you to be YOU and to experience the world.
Exercise also helps you to release stress and anxiety, leads to better focus, and a happier YOU. Here’s how:
Dopamine is a chemical that engages feelings of pleasure and happiness in the brain. The best way to up your dopamine quotient.is to engage in activity. Run, jump, lift, play – get active and enjoy being a happier person.
Regular exercise ensures that you become a less stressed person. Sweating out your worries and anxieties helps your health in the long term.
Normally you get to hear a lot of people say that they are too tired or don’t have enough time to exercise. But once you make exercise a priority, you will – within the first few days – note how energized you feel. All you require is a little will power.
Exercise is a great confidence booster. How you look has an effect on how you feel. Exercise leads to positive body image and confidence. And your confidence is certain to transform your goals, aspirations, relationships and career for the better.
A hard workout is a known remedy to cut anxiety. Working out in a positive atmosphere will cancel out any negative emotions you are carrying inside of you.
Trouble sleeping? Try exercise. Your quality of sleep improves significantly with exercise and over time help overcome sleep disorders.
Regular exercise can help you attain a better quality of life and a happier state of mind. You do not have to engage in demanding physical activity as you start out. Create your own pace, find something that you enjoy doing, understand the benefits, and stay committed to becoming a healthier person. Walking, stretching, breathing and muscle relaxation techniques are a good way to start. For those already in the gym, stay with your program, increase the level of difficulty as you progress. Enjoy what you do.
