8 Benefits Of Regular Exercise

Being active has been shown to have many health benefits, both physically and mentally.
There are dozens of reasons why you should exercise on a regular basis, from reduced body fat, increased muscle mass to protection from several deadly diseases. Exercising on a regular basis is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health as it improves nearly every aspect of your health from the inside out.  
  1. It Can Help With Weight Loss - Studies have shown that inactivity is a major factor in weight gain and obesity thus combining aerobic exercise with resistance training is crucial to supporting a fast metabolism, burning more calories per day and weight loss.
  2. Beneficial For Your Muscles and Bones - Exercise plays a vital role in building and maintaining strong muscles and bones. Physical activity like weightlifting can stimulate muscle building and help build bone density. As we age, we tend to lose muscle mass and function, which can lead to injuries and disabilities.
  3. Exercise Can Improve Chronic Conditions - If you have a chronic disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, dementia, arthritis, asthma, back or joint pain, exercise can have important health benefits. It's important to talk to your doctor before starting an exercise routine to go through any precautions you might need to take while exercising.
  4. It Can Make You Feel Happier - Exercise has been shown to improve your mood and decrease feelings of depression, anxiety and stress as it can increase the production of endorphins, which are known to help produce positive feelings and brain sensitivity for the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine.
  5. It Can Increase Your Energy Levels - Exercise can be an energy booster for healthy people, as well as those suffering from various medical conditions. Regular physical activity increases blood flow to your body and improves your cardiovascular health and fitness.
  6. Reduce Stress and Improve Sleep QualityThere’s scientific evidence that exercise helps with stress levels and improve your sleep quality. Stress is a common cause of sleep problems, including trouble falling asleep and sleeping restlessly during the night. Making exercise part of your regular routine can contribute to healthier, more restful sleep and may help improve sleep issues such as insomnia. Being physically active requires you to expend energy, and helps you feel more tired and ready to rest at the end of the day. 
  7. It Can Delay Aging- Regular moderate exercise can provide antioxidant protection and promote blood flow, which can protect your skin and delay signs of aging.
  8. Boost Sex Drive - Engaging in regular exercise can strengthen the cardiovascular system, improve blood circulation and enhance flexibility, all of which can improve your sex life. Exercise can help improve sexual desire, function and performance in men and women. It can also help decrease the risk of erectile dysfunction in men as it increases blood flow.
