1.Exercise can make you feel better

*Exercising regularly can improve your mood and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.

Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and less anxious. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

2. Exercise can help with weight loss/gain

*Exercise is crucial to supporting a healthy metabolism and burning more calories per day. Depending on how you plan your routine it can be used to gain muscle and/or lose fat.

3. Exercise is good for your bones

*Exercise not only strengthens your muscles but can also strengthen your bones. It can also help prevent osteoporosis.

4.Exercise can increase your energy levels

*Engaging in regular physical activity consistently can increase your energy levels. This is true even in people with persistent fatigue and those with serious health conditions.

5. Exercise can help reduce your risk of disease

*Daily physical activity is essential to maintaining a healthy weight and reducing the risk of chronic disease.
Exercise strengthens your heart and improves your circulation. The increased blood flow raises the oxygen levels in your body. This helps lower your risk of heart diseases such as high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, and heart attack. Regular exercise can also lower your blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

6. Exercise can help skin health

*Moderate exercise can provide antioxidant protection and promote blood flow, which can protect your skin and delay signs of aging. Sweat removes dirt and germs from your pores while the post-gym shower washes them away.

7. Exercise can help your brain health and memory

*Regular exercise improves blood flow to the brain by increasing heart rate and even helps brain health and memory. Among older adults, it can help protect mental function.

8. Exercise can help with relaxation and sleep quality

*Regular physical activity, regardless of whether it is aerobic or a combination of aerobic and resistance training, can help you sleep better and feel more energized during the day.

9. Exercise can reduce pain

*Exercise has favorable effects on the pain associated with various conditions. It can help reduce inflamation, increase mobility, and decrease overall body pain. It can also increase pain tolerance.

10. Exercise can promote a better 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.

 The Bottom Line:

Exercise offers incredible benefits that can improve nearly every aspect of your health. Regular physical activity can increase the production of hormones that make you feel happier and help you sleep better.

If you aim for 150 to 300 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity each week or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity spread throughout the week, you’ll meet the Department of Health and Human Services’ activity guidelines for adults.

Moderate intensity aerobic activity is anything that gets your heart beating faster, like walking, cycling, or swimming. Activities like running or participating in a strenuous fitness class count for vigorous intensity.

Throw in at least 2 days of muscle-strengthening activities involving all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms), and you’ll exceed the recommendations.

You can use weights, resistance bands, or your bodyweight to perform muscle-strengthening exercises. These include squats, push-ups, shoulder press, chest, press, and planks.

Whether you practice a specific sport or follow the guideline of 150 minutes of activity per week, you can inevitably improve your health in many ways by exercising consistently.
