REGULAR EXERCISE AND STAYING HEALTHY
Regular exercise not only supports a healthy lifestyle, it also provides positive healthy benefits, including a more positive mental outlook, less stress, and a more positive body image.
Exercise helps your self-image when you see that you’re dedicated to your health, and disciplined to put yourself first by spending time to regularly exercise your body. You’ll feel stronger, not to mention enjoy the benefits of endorphins – the powerful chemicals produced by the brain that are natural painkillers and responsible for what is known as the “runner’s high”, a feeling of euphoria and state of well-being often experienced by exercise enthusiasts.
When you look better, you feel amazing, and exercise has this affect. Regular physical activity not only helps to maintain optimal weight and body composition those who regularly exercise enjoy significantly decreased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer, among others. And these benefits are more than just short term; those who regularly exercise are sick 30% less often than non-exercisers, and fit people generally enjoy longer lives than their less fit counterparts.
When you exercise, focus on how you feel and you’ll likely stick with your exercise program. If the thought of dragging yourself to workout isn’t motivating, maybe find a partner or support group, encouraging you and challenging you. When you exercise, seek activities that are fun and leave you feeling strong and empowered, whether it’s a challenging spinning class, a relaxing yoga session, or a brisk walk on the treadmill. Your body will thank you for taking good care of it, and you’ll reap the many rewards of a healthier body and mind.
Exercise is a step in the right direction towards a positive healthy lifestyle.
