More and more I am seeing how exercise can help way more things than it gets credit for.
Exercise is seen by so many as just a tool to 'loosing weight'. While that is true and it can facilitate weight loss, there is SOOOOO many more reasons why you should exercise and why exercise is essential to your life.
Improve your sleep
Improve your mental health
Improve your posture
Make you stronger for everyday activities such as bringing in the shopping
Make it easier to run for buses or walk your dog longer
Make it easier to get up and down stairs, or even just up and our of bed
Improve your body confidence
Improve your resistance to illnesses
Improve your current illness symptoms
Improve your bone density
Lower your heart rate and blood pressure
Boost your energy
Among a WHOLE host of other benefits.
So next time you think exercise is just about weight loss, think about the bigger picture.
