The wonderful thing about exercise is that is has countless benefits!
The ones you often hear about are related to your physical well-being — it helps prevent chronic diseases like osteoporosis and certain types of cancer, improves heart and lung function, and is a key element in controlling and maintaining a healthy weight.
But you should also relish the emotional benefits of exercise!
No matter your age or sex, exercise is a mood booster!
Even moderate levels of aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, can raise the endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine in your brain (your body’s feel-good chemicals).
Working out regularly can also enhance creativity, reduce anxiety, and help combat depression. And meditative exercises like yoga are an especially powerful stress reliever!
So next time you need to blow off some steam, feel restless, or have trouble concentrating, hit the gym!
It’ll give you that much-needed natural high. Plus, after you see all the physical benefits of your hard work — your slimmer body and improved muscle tone — another thing that’ll soar is your confidence!
(My thoughts) When I joined the GYM it was an uncomfortable feeling for me, anxiety and actually scared at times. The more I walked through the doors and started working out the better I felt.
Today I am proud I am so committed to my GYM Workouts and feel like I belong. I will say again and again that my ‘feel good endorphins’ happen every time.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
