Jan Challenge Day 28 | Move and Sweat

Posted by Health Boutique on

Daily exercise boosts your energy levels, improves your mood and relieves stress. No matter what your age or shape, you should exercise daily. Not only does exercise tone your body so you can wear your favourite jeans, it strengthens your muscles, keeps your bones strong, and improves your skin. And there are more benefits of exercise -- increased relaxation, better sleep and mood, strong immune function, and more. 

  1. Improves memory - Not only is your brain getting more energy and oxygen, but many studies have shown that exercise can boost your memory and help you learn better.
  1. Improves posture - one of the best ways to fix your postureis to exercise the muscles holding you back. Check out some of the most common posture problems people have, and which muscles you should work out to help fix them. Regularly exercising your abs, back, and other muscles can go a long way into fixing your posture, both sitting and standing.
  1. Confidence booster - Exercise can also help you feel more accomplished and social (if you work out at a gym). Even if you don't see immediate results in your body, that effort will make you feel better.
  1. Reduces stress - studies have shown that exercise is a great way to combat it. Not only are those endorphins natural stress-fighters, but getting yourself into that exercise groove helps get your mind off the things stressing you out.
  1. Get better sleep - the National Sleep Foundationsays at regular exercise can help you sleep better. The best time to work out is in the morning or the afternoon.
  1. Increases energy - regular exercise can actually make you feel more energized throughout the day. In fact, one study found that exercising in the middle of the day can leave you feeling more energetic and productive for the rest of the afternoon. You should still try to get in some walking throughout the day, but a midday workout could be a great pick-me-up
  1. Increases happiness - It's not just those "runner's high" endorphins—regular exercise can actually improve your life in oh-so-many ways. All you need to do is make it a habit—the University of Bristol found that people's mood significantly improved on days they exercised
