Health Benefits Of Exercise
Exercising can significantly improve
our overall well being. Let's take a look at some of the great benefits.
Exercising is essential to our health on so many levels with enormous
benefits, including heart health, cancer prevention, glowing skin, and an
overall positive attitude. Everyone wants a fit and strong body but
getting started with exercise is the toughest part. Don't exercise to
lose weight or just for one particular reason, in actuality exercising
should be an ongoing activity for a healthy you. Remember to consult with
your doctor if you are going to increase beyond moderate exercise.
Exercise can help bring your weight
down and help in maintaining healthy body weight. Weight loss can reduce
blood pressure and cholesterol levels, but if you need to lose weight, you
have to diet as well as increase activity. Weight gain is essentially due
to the energy intake from the diet or food being more significant than the
energy expended through physical activity. To lose weight, you have to
make your physical activity (expendable energy) higher than the energy
intake from food. Unfortunately, what happens many occasions when people
diet and exercise to lose weight, once they reach their weight loss a
goal, they go back to their old exercising and dieting habits and gain
back all the weight that they had lost and maybe gain more. For this
reason, don't exercise to lose weight; your goal should be indefinite; it
is an ongoing fit and healthy thing.
Simply put, fitness is the body's
ability to adapt to and stand physical stress. This ability is to
accomplish everyday tasks vigorously and swiftly without excessive fatigue
and with sufficient energy left over to devote to the full enjoyment of
leisure time and to deal with emergencies. Performing regular exercise is
the most efficient way to attain, manage, and improve your fitness level.
Proper exercise can help to boost energy levels, enhance fitness, lose
weight, prevent diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes
and hypertension. Whatever your current fitness state is, it can always be
improved. The aid of a
can also be a worthwhile investment.
Exercise stimulates the brain and
helps in blood circulation in a better manner, thus reducing depression.
Exercise will raise your mood and reduce anxiety and depression; it is a
depression treatment that doesn't involve any medication or chemical
antidepressants. You can have a better result in treating depression with
exercise than with any antidepressants and another kind of drugs.
Interesting clinical research pointed out that not only can exercise beat
severe depression, but it also helps stop depression from reappearing. The
hazard of depression and anxiety symptoms increases dramatically when
people stop exercising.
Exercising lets the heart pump lots
of blood through your veins, strengthening the immune system and lowering
the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and osteoporosis.
Aerobic exercise trains the heart, lungs, and cardiovascular system as a
whole to process and deliver oxygen more quickly and efficiently to all
parts of the body. As you become more aerobically fit, the heart won't
have to work as hard to pump blood to the rest of the party, including the
liver. 120 - 160 minutes of aerobic activity can help control cholesterol,
high blood pressure, and diabetes and cut the risk of heart disease.
Exercise will raise one's mood and
reduces stress and depression. Anxiety can feed on itself, the more
anxious you feel, the more you worry about having an anxiety attack.
Exercise improves sleeping patterns and reduces the levels of anxiety; It
can also help to combat mental problems such as mental tension,
depression, anxiety and generally helps us to stay happy in our life.
Social anxiety or social phobia as it is sometimes known causes people to
become overwhelmed by everyday situations. Situations that most people
take no notice of can drive a person who suffers from anxiety into deep
fear and sometimes panics. Social anxiety disorder can overtake someone's
life if they allow it to.
