We all know that doctors advise 60 minutes of exercise everyday. But what are the real benefits of doing this? Surprisingly enough, there are so many great aspects of daily exercise. Even if it’s just a walk through the park with your dog!
#1. You will be happier…literally
Exercise causes a natural chemical called endorphins in your brain to be released. Endorphins make you happy! So the endorphins being released, plus that fact that you will feel good about yourself for exercising will put you in an all around good mood for the rest of the day.
#2. You will save money!
Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly are less like to have high cholesterol and heart disease. Think of all the money you will save on doctors visits if you exercise! And who doesn’t love saving money?
#3. You will look better
Exercise is one of the best ways to lose weight and get in shape. It’s as simple as that. No cosmetic surgery can get you the natural beauty that exercise can. You will feel better and look better!
#4. Improves balance and flexibility
By exercising you begin to strengthen your core. Your core is what enables you to have good balance and by using your muscles you will also become more flexible as you move your body and keep the muscles strong.
#5. You will live longer!
Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly live longer and healthier lives than those who don’t. With that kind of information why wouldn’t you exercise! It is never to late to start exercising. Start out slow if you need to. Take a walk or ride a bike, you can start anywhere. Over time you can start making your work outs harder.
