Though most people repel the idea, the majority has gone crazy over exercise not only because our lives have become sedentary, but also because we are in grave need of rescue from obesity and weight gain. With more than half of us Americans struggling against the pull of weight on our bodies, there is no doubt that we are in deep trouble. We have compiled below some of the top health benefits of exercising at least 1 Â¼ hours per week.
Definitely leads to calorie expenditure – Though you burn energy while at rest, this amount can never compensate that which you bring into your body every time you sit on your table to have a meal. If you could burn at least 3500 calories per week, it would not be impossible for you to be a pound less heavy week after week.
Improves sleep – Exercise exhausts the body, enough to make you snooze mildly at night. And if you get well-rested during sleep, you would be able to be more effective at your tasks the next day, whether it’s work, customary activities, or another round on the elliptical trainer.
Lessens the risk of developing heart-related diseases – Through putting the heart and lungs to use along with other mechanisms, exercise improves the cardiovascular system. This leads to a host of other benefits such as better focus of the brain and lesser chances of developing cardiovascular-related diseases.
Reduces the risk of premature death – Not exercising is a foolproof way of meeting your early death. However, adding in a few minutes of activities into your daily habits will prevent untimely deterioration of the body.
Builds and maintains healthy muscles, joints, and bones – Strength training, muscle building…name it. All exercises can fortify the muscular and skeletal frames.
Promotes longevity – A raft of research proves that people who exercise regularly are more likely to outlive those who live stationary lives.
Improves psychological well-being – Exercising can relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and mood swings. This is because exercising can stimulate the release of certain chemicals in the body. These chemicals greatly affect emotions.
