The Top 10 Reasons to Exercise Regularly

Support your overall wellness, your future self will thank you.

We all know that exercise is important. However, it does more for your health than many people realize. By exercising regularly you’ll support several areas of your overall wellness that your future self will thank you for. If you’re having trouble convincing yourself to get up and move, here are 10 significant benefits of regular exercise.

  1. Support Cognitive Function
  2. Working out also supports your cognitive function. When performing physical activity, your heart rate increases which pumps more oxygen to your brain. By exercising regularly you can support your brain health.

  3. Improve Endurance
    Aerobic exercise or any form of cardio can help improve your endurance. If you go for a walk or run consistently, you may notice that the more frequent you go, the easier it gets. Your body becomes accustomed to the type of exercise because you’re improving your endurance.

  4. Enhance Quality of Sleep
    If you have trouble sleeping, exercising regularly can help improve your quality of sleep. The more you work-out and tire out your body, the easier it will be for you to hit the hay.

  5. Increase Strength
    Incorporating weight-lifting into your workout routine can help improve your strength, which can be beneficial for everyday activities. Whether you lift heavy objects at work, need to carry your kids or grandkids, you’re always Better off Healthy…and strong!

  6. Reduce Stress/Tension
    Feeling stressed? Hit the gym! Many people use the gym as a form of therapy, for good reason. As you work out, your body releases endorphins, or “feel-good” hormones that improve your mood and reduce stress/tension.

  7. Support Cardiovascular Health
    Support your heart health by exercising consistently. Your heart is a muscle and just like the other muscles in your body, it should be worked out. The way to do it is by getting your heart pumping when you work out, especially as you perform cardiovascular exercises such as running, walking, swimming or biking.

  8. Supercharge Your Metabolism
    Exercising regularly has shown to boost your metabolism, which is responsible for chemical reactions that occur in your body. A slower metabolism will have trouble with weight-loss while a faster one can help you lose fat and burn more calories.

  9. Transform Your Physique
  10. One of the most obvious reasons that people work out is to transform their body. Aside from looking and feeling better, weight loss is beneficial for your heart health and overall wellness. As you burn calories through exercise and eat a healthy diet, you’ll begin to see your physique transform.

  11. Boost Confidence
  12. As you exercise regularly and start to see results, you’ll also notice a boost in confidence levels. As you start to feel good about your progress, it will radiate outward. Whether you’re excited about your weight-loss, your increased strength or faster mile time, every small milestone is something to be proud of.

  13. Make Your Future-Self Proud
    Exercise regularly today so you can be thankful years from now that you did. The more frequently you work out, the more accustomed your body will be to it. Whatever life throws your way, remember that you’re always Better off Healthy.
