Why exercise is so important for your health

Why do we need to exercise?

One of the key facts to keep your body healthy is exercise. For you to maintain a healthy lifestyle exercise should definitely be part of your daily activities. I know that time is not always on our side when it comes to getting things done in a day, but we must aim to exercise for at least 30 min a day.  Sacrificing 30 min of your time a day will benefit you so much in the long run. Our bodies were made to move and stay active, you won’t be able to let your car stand in the driveway and rust, would you?

Exercising has so many benefits that will keep your body and mind healthy and active. You would be able to think clearer and be more productive.

Studies have proven that lack of exercising might increase your risk of getting heart diseases. Aerobic cardiovascular exercise is one of the best methods to decrease your chances of heart disease. Cardiovascular exercise trains the heart to be more efficient and helps the body to utilize oxygen better. It also lowers your blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, the two major causes of heart diseases.  Exercise will also help you to manage your weight. By controlling your body weight you will reduce the amount of stress on your heart.

Exercise is not just good for your body, but also for your mental health. Regular exercise can have a positive effect on reducing stress, ADHD and help with depression. It also improves your memory, boosts your productivity and boosts your overall mood. Exercising regularly can also improve your sleep patterns to help you sleep better and get that good nights rest. Exercise will also help you to feel better about yourself, giving you that confidence you need.

You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to get the benefits, you should just try and stay active for at least 30 min a day. No matter your age, fitness level your body type, you can learn to use exercise to sculpt your dream body and help you to maintain not just a healthy body, but also a healthy mind.
