Let’s face it, some days you just don’t feel like exercising.
You get too busy, too stressed and quite simply too tired.
Here’s a list of 13 of the top reasons to exercise. Pull out this list and read it when you’re having one of those days.
1. To Prevent Disease
Exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of many health conditions, from stroke to heart disease to cancer and osteoporosis. Exercise is also a great defense against type 2 diabetes, which is one of the most widely growing diseases of our time.
2. To Look Great
Exercise firms your body, improves posture and even makes your skin glow. Looking your best is a wonderful result of regular exercise.
3. To Lose Weight and Keep It Off
Exercise helps us increase our energy expenditure, burning through excess body fat and prevents us from gaining weight in the future.
4. To Have More Energy
Anyone who exercises regularly will tell you that they are more energetic. Once you start moving, your energy stays up!
5. To Sleep Better
Exercise boosts energy levels, but also wears you out. It makes you feel more vibrant during the day and sleep better at night. And after that restful sleep, you have more energy the next day!
6. To Age Slower
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to fight aging. As you age, your body tends to lose muscle and bone. Regular exercise can drastically reduce the loss of both! Exercise also helps reduce inflammation, another issue that comes along with the aging process.
7. To Relieve Back Pain
In most cases, the best thing that you can do for back pain is to move and strengthen those muscles. Consult your physician or physical therapist for guidance.
8. To Ease Depression
Exercise has been shown to reduce depression – sometimes even as effectively as medication.
9. To Reduce Aches and Pains
By strengthening muscles around your damaged joints you’re able to use exercise to reduce joint pain and overall aches. Always consult your physician before starting an exercise program, especially if you have chronic joint pain.
10. To Stay Mentally Sharp
Exercise has been shown to improve memory and other cognitive functions, and may even have a protective effect against dementia.
11.To Enjoy Your Lifestyle
Whatever it is that you love in life – your kids, travel, sports, fashion – it is all more enjoyable when experienced in a fit and healthy body. Exercise so that you are able to enjoy all the great things in life.
12.To Reduce Sick Days
People who exercise regularly are less likely to call in sick to work. Regular exercise may strengthen your immune system!
