QUOTE OF THE DAY

A positive attitude can really make dreams come true.

It is probably a well-known fact that fitness can provide you with a better and healthier life. You live longer with the least amount of problems with your body as possible. Fitness does not mean that you stop eating everything that has more than your usual amount of calories in it, but instead, it means to have enough workout or exercise to burn those calories. Many people only associate perfect abs and a bigger chest and thighs to be the only fitness level possible yet many forget that fitness is how you perceive it, keeping in mind the fact that you are not overweight or underweight.

When you set out a goal to be fit, you are challenging yourself of what you can do and how much of an effort you can put in to achieve that desired appearance. When you finally do attain that weight that you intended to, you are setting yourself on a path to better self-acceptance and higher confidence. This lets you achieve inner peace just as much as it benefits your bodily functions and lifestyle. If the healthy part of staying fit does not motivate you, here are some reasons that can intrigue you to make that lifestyle choice.

A Boost of Chemicals Producing Happiness:

Despite us providing our body with multiple nutrients, through food, diet, and products, our body itself is also capable of working and protecting itself to some extent. This advantage can be certainly seen when our body produces a chemical, known as endorphins, which boosts our mood and creates feelings that make us happy. The release of these chemicals is elevated when we are exercising and benefitting our body through workouts. The sense of achievement that we feel after a good exercise routine can let the endorphins flow in abundance, therefore boosting our happiness.

Prevention from Cognitive Decline:

Alzheimer’s is a horrible disease, where the sufferer slowly loses his/her memory and finally dies with the illness. There is no cure for this disease, but exercise in your youth and middle age can, to a certain extent, prevent the brain from developing this condition. This is due to the fact that there is constant activity in your brain and you generate chemicals that prevent brain degeneration.

Reduction in Stress:

Be it physical stress on your joints, or mental stress, exercise helps relieve both of them. The physical stress may be caused by your bones being pressured by the extra weight being put on them, while mental stress can be work or personal life-related. However, exercise provides an escape from these stresses, and in that small window that you work out, you are focusing on yourself rather than any other mundane problems that may be bothering you.

Control From Addiction:

Just as alcohol, drugs and nicotine may lead you to become addicted to them, there is a certain chemical ingrained in your system known as dopamine that can be addictive. It is also known as a “reward” chemical that would make a person feel pleasurable. This sensation comes when you have sex, great food or have a workout session. This helps you feel elevated and good about yourself, all the while relaxing you.

Boost Confidence:

As mentioned previously, a good body can do wonders for your confidence. Whether you have an hourglass figure or a straight silhouette, if you believe that you are beautiful and worked hard to achieve a certain size, then you would be confident in your body. You won’t shy away from facing the public, or look for the approval of people for you instead of being confident in yourself.

All in all, these characteristics make up a healthy brain. There is no reason why you should shy away from a good workout routine when it provides you with so many benefits. All you have to do is get the will to exercise every day, and surely you will succeed in your goal.
