By Sandra 0

Sometimes it can be hard to get motivated to get active. It’s not easy to get out for your run on a dark winter’s morning and sometimes it can be a struggle to make it to the gym after a long day at work. Whenever you’re struggling to get moving don’t forget all the benefits that you’ll be getting from your workout!

Long Term Health Benefits

Let’s start with the overwhelming evidence that being physically active is good for your health. It’s medically proven that regular physical activity reduces your risk of coronary heart disease & stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, hypertension & dementia.

Weight Management

Exercise supports a healthy metabolism and helps you burn more calories per day, thus helping you maintain muscle mass and lose weight.

Boost your mood

Exercising regularly can improve your mood and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. What’s more, exercise produces endorphins, that relieve pain and create a general feeling of well-being.

Better Sleep

Many studies on the effects of exercise on sleep have concluded that regular exercise helps you relax and sleep better. It doesn’t seem to matter whether your chosen exercise is aerobic or a combination of aerobic and resistance training, it can help you sleep better and feel more energized during the day.

It’s fun!

Regular physical activity offers incredible benefits that can improve nearly every aspect of your health, make you feel happier and help you sleep better. And if you choose an activity that you enjoy you’ll have fun while you are reaping all those health benefits.
