There are many health benefits to exercising and participating in physical activity regularly. Exercise benefits everyone, regardless of age, gender, or physical ability.

Do you need more motivation to get moving? Take a look at these 3 ways exercise can improve your health and happiness.

Exercising Reduces Weight

Calories burn when you exercise. Exercise burns more calories the more intense it is. We loss or excess weight gain is preventable with exercise.

Although regular gym visits are great, don’t worry if you don’t have time to exercise every day. There is no such thing as too much activity. You can reap the benefits of exercise by becoming more active throughout the day – take the stairs instead of the elevator or do more household chores. The key to success is consistency.

Health Conditions Can Be Treated by Exercise

Are you concerned about heart disease? Are you trying to prevent high blood pressure? The good cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), is boosted when you are active, and unhealthy triglycerides decrease when you are active. Your blood will flow smoothly, reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Exercise can prevent or manage many health problems and concerns, including:

  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Many types of cancer
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Falls

As well as improving cognitive function, it can reduce the risk of death from all causes.

Exercise Improves Mood

Feeling down? After a stressful day, do you need to destress? You may feel less anxious and happier when physically active because it stimulates several brain chemicals. A gym session or brisk walk can help.

Exercising regularly may also feel more confident and self-assured, boosting your self-esteem and confidence.
