8 Surprising Benefits Of Exercise

So its 5 am, the alarm goes off, and you have promised yourself again to get up early and get into your daily exercise routine.

If at this stage you are struggling to find motivation, here are some of the more surprising benefits exercise has for your health and well being.


Relaxation Bath Salts

1. Reduces Stress

Working up a sweat can help manage physical and mental stress.

Exercise also increases concentrations of a chemical that can moderate the brain’s response to stress.

Exercise also releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria.  So go ahead and get sweaty – working out can reduce stress, boost the body’s ability to deal with mental tension, and instantly boost overall mood.

2. Improves Self-Confidence

On a very basic level, physical fitness can boost self-esteem and improve positive self-image. Regardless of weight, size, gender or age, exercise can quickly elevate a person’s perception of his or her attractiveness or self-worth.

Quite a few university studies like this one, support the idea that even just a little exercise will improve how you see yourself.

3. Health Conditions or Diseases

Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure?

No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good”, cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

4. Can Help With Weight Gain

Exercise can help prevent excess weight. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn.

You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits.

If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walking instead of driving where possible, or revving up your household chores.

More tips on easy ways to drop weight are here.

5. Promotes Better Sleep

Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. It not only helps the duration of sleep but also the quality of your sleep.

So if you are having trouble with insomnia, a little more exercise, particularly late in the afternoon, may help.
