Everyone is aware that exercise is ideal for good health, but the question is how many people really bother to do it? One way or other people always find ways and means of shirking doing exercises with excuses like they have too much to do, do not have the time to do it or that they are just plain tired after a hard day’s work. There are ever so many people who make New Year resolutions year after year to start exercising, but that hardly ever gets done. But, the most significant motivation to exercise is the overall good health that one can enjoy. Exercise not only helps improve one’s physical condition it also enhances mental well being.
The advantages of exercising are extensive and endless. It’s not just being able to get into one’s more shapely clothes or loose weight or expose sexy muscles. Integrating exercise into one’s daily life will help burn fat and strengthen as well as stretch one’s muscles. And to top it all, exercises also aids a person in lowering one’s appetite.
Another benefit of exercising is that it assists in getting rid of pain in the joints, irrespective of whether it is in the knee, hip, back, neck or shoulders. This could be attributed to the fact that first of all exercising will quite naturally help reduce weight, which is directly related to the amount of weight a person applies on his/her knees and back and secondly exercising helps make the joints more strong. One more factor is that people who do regular exercises seem to have better posture too.
Exercises also is necessary for the muscles of the heart, because the heart muscles like all other muscles in a person’s body needs to be exercised to function properly. Every time someone exercises his/her heart rate goes up thereby strengthening the muscles of not only the heart but the lungs too. In addition exercising helps to release endorphins. Typically endorphins are chemicals that incite the pleasure points in the brain making one feel energetic, more in control of oneself and alleviate one’s moods.
There are various fun ways to exercise and it does not have to be a drag. The point is that most people see exercise as an activity that they have really no interest in doing it. There is nothing specific that ones needs to do. If a person likes playing some sort of sport then they could convert that into a daily habit for exercise or one could even take a walk while listening to music which can be an extremely enjoyable break. Getting some friends together for a daily walk will not only help a person get his exercise, he/she will also be able to catch up on what has been happening in the neighborhood lately.
