Exercise: What's in it For You?
Better Mood Cranky? Get moving. Exercise makes you feel happier. When you work out, your body makes endorphins- feel good chemicals in your brain. You can actually feel better within a few minutes of moving. But the effects of regular exercise can last for a long time.
More Confidence You just walked a mile or ran your first 5K. Success like that can boost your self-esteem and make you ready to conquer anything. Exercise makes you feel good about yourself.
Less Stress Exercise calms your body and your brain. After your body works hard, the levels of stress hormones - like adrenaline and cortisol drop. Stress and anxiety fade away, especially after aerobic exercise.
More Productive Want to be more efficient at work? Take a break and get some exercise. In one study, people who got moving in the middle of the day were much more productive when they went back to work. They were also happier and got along better with their co-workers.
Weight Control Exercise and nutrition work together to keep your weight healthy. Whether you want to lose some inches around the waist or just avoid putting on extra pounds, exercise is the key. Try to work out 30 minutes most days of the week.
