Exercise is not just about looking good

Exercise is not just about looking good

Our health and mental wellbeing is linked closely to our physical wellbeing. Exercise brings so much more than a good looking body.

The impact of exercise on our lives is significant. It’s been proven that those who are active for around seven hours per week have a 40 per cent lower risk of dying early, compared those who are active for less than 30 minutes each week.

There have been widely documented studies which show the correlation between mental wellbeing and physical activity, and exercise is thought to help keep depression at bay, and to promote motivation in other areas of life.

You don’t have to do an excessive amount of exercise to reap the benefits. Just keep moderately active for 30 minutes each day and you’ll benefit both physically and mentally.

People exercise for many different reasons, but there’s no denying its overall health benefits.

Being active can prevent a number of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and it’s even believed exercise can help with memory function.

By joining a group and doing exercise with friends you will find it easier to motivate yourself to stay active, and by having a regular slot that you keep to, you’ll find it easier to stick to your workout.

As long as you work at raising your heart rate, then you’ll benefit from all the endorphins and health benefits.

So don’t just aim to do exercise for your looks, but enjoy the fact that it will boost your spirits, and help you to be more productive, increase memory and help you to live longer.
