From controlling your weight to boosting your mood, here are 5 compelling reasons why you should improve your life with a regular exercise routine.
1. Exercise helps control your weight
There’s no shortcut to weight management. To lose weight, or to prevent weight gain, you need to exercise. Simply follow this simple guideline: the more intense your exercise, the more calories you’ll lose. (But as always, do consult a doctor before embarking on a vigorous exercise regime.)
2. Exercise keeps your heart healthy
Regardless of weight, your heart is a muscle that strengthens with repeated cardiovascular activities. And the stronger your heart gets, the more blood it can pump with a single beat—this means that your body gets oxygen more efficiently.
3. Exercise improves your mood
Exercise doesn’t just help you to look better, it also helps you to feel better. During physical activity, your brain releases endorphins, which induces good feelings. So the next time you are stressed, just hit the gym to experience nature’s mood enhancer.
4. Exercise boosts your brainpower
Remember that sense of clarity and well-being after a good workout? That happens because of increased oxygen flow to your brain, which increases your mental sharpness and decision-making ability. Think of it as a quick and easy way to get smart.
5. Exercise promotes better sleep
Having trouble sleeping or staying asleep? Again, try some exercise. The exertion of physical energy helps you to fall asleep faster, and sleep deeper. Just avoid exercising too close to bedtime or you may feel too energized to sleep. Now get out there and start moving!
