10 benefits of physical activity

It’s no secret that staying active is important to your physical and mental health. But what are the benefits of regular exercise? We have compiled a list of 10 reasons why you should try to incorporate more activity into your daily life:

  1. Exercise helps promote weight loss and maintenance, which reduces the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and certain cancers.
  2. Regular exercise boosts your mood… You will feel happier after training as exercise releases endorphins which make you feel euphoric. Regular training also helps fight depression and anxiety by releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters into the brain that raise serotonin levels, resulting in an elevated mood!
  3. Regular physical activity has been shown to improve sleep quality through better bedtime relaxation. A good night’s rest will help keep you energized while you sleep.
  4. Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Regular physical activity can reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular disease by strengthening your heart and helping to control weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels throughout your life. Regular physical activity is important for healthy bones and joints.
  5. Physical activity can prevent age-related deterioration in the functioning of the elderly by increasing muscle strength, coordination, bone mass and metabolism; these are factors that help to maintain independence. Physical inactivity is the second leading cause of death in the world – so make sure you’re active!
  6. Keep fit – Being active helps you get fit and stay healthy. It also increases your ability to carry out everyday activities, such as climbing stairs and carrying groceries. Being physically active means being more functional in everyday life!
  7. Increase in immunity – The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a study that showed how even moderate exercise increases immunity. The research team found that people who were physically active had higher levels of white blood cells than those who did not exercise regularly. These types of cells are responsible for protecting your body against infections and cancer.
  8. Improved Metabolism – People who are physically active have better insulin levels, which leads to an improvement in metabolism
  9. Increased Muscle Mass and Strength – Maintaining strong muscles is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Regular physical activity can help you maintain muscle mass and strength as you age, which helps protect your bones from fractures. This means that even if you are 70 or over, regular exercise can be beneficial in keeping your body in good shape.
  10. Increase of Life Energy – Exercise is a natural way to increase and regain energy throughout the day. It increases metabolism, stimulates blood circulation and promotes cell renewal!
