Benefits of Exercise

There are so many, it’ll be impossible to list them all. But here are the most significant advantages to ‘getting physical’ everyday.

  • It can make flab disappear.
  • Physical activity
  • calorie burning
  • weight loss.

It’s a simple equation. Knock off pounds by taking the stairs or short walks around the office building. Forget the car and walk to the supermarket; join your kids in the park. Even little installments of activity during the day add up to quite a lot.

  • It fights disease.
  • Exercise
  • weight loss
  • fight lifestyle diseases

Exercise ensures all-round health. So not only will you fight heart disease or plaque-clogged arteries, even little bouts of illness will occur less often. Lifestyle diseases won’t plague you either – so forget about diabetes, osteoporosis and the rest of the disease baggage.

  • Keeps you perky all day.
  • Keep Fit
  • keeps your energy levels up
  • Feel Perky

The more you exercise, the better organs like the heart and lungs function. Which in turn keeps your energy levels up all the time – like chocolate sans calories! Staying fit drives away that constant sense of fatigue, and can add hours to each day.

  • Zzzz….you’ll sleep better.
  • Exercise
  • Feel physically tired
  • Sleep well

We know that a good night’s sleep recharges your batteries for the day ahead. But catching enough shuteye is difficult for many people nowadays – and if do manage to doze off, staying asleep through the night is an issue. Exercise can solve this one too. Regular physical activity gives your body the rest it needs. Try it – you’ll soon be tossing and turning in bed a lot less.

  • Works magic with mental health - Hakuna Matata!
  • Exercise
  • Releases Hormones in Brain
  • Feel on top of the world

Regular workouts release certain brain chemicals that can set your mood right for the entire day ahead. It sharpens your mental faculties, reduces depression and stress and leaves you feeling a whole lot better about yourself.

  • Peps up your social life.
  • Exercise
  • Visit Gym
  • Improve Social life

Community workouts, like at a gym, is a great way to meet new people, make friends, catch up on local gossip etc – everything that makes for a good and healthy social outlet. Experts also suggest that exercising for others proves useful – like cycling at a charity event. Team sports is good, especially for kids. But if you have to work out alone – try taking your spouse or best friend along. Besides being good company, (s)he will keep your motivation levels up.

To keep fit you have to work at it every day; otherwise you cannot enjoy health. Remember what the famous actress Cher said about fitness-

'Fitness - If it came in a bottle, everybody would have a great body'.
