Stop Avoiding Exercise: 4 Reasons You Need It

By Virginia Laird

Looking for reasons not to exercise every day? You are not alone in this thought. Millions across the nation choose not to workout and find reasonable excuses not to. However, research suggests that exercise plays a key role in the health and wellness of everyone. Working out offers much more than physical benefits, including:

  • Exercise can offer a social outlet
  • Working out at the end of the day can help relieve stress
  • Exercise can help keep the pounds away
  • Exercise is good for mental health

Exercise Can Offer a Social Outlet

Many are strapped to social interaction exclusive to work, making the majority of conversation about the long list of to-dos and stress that lingers long after the work day. Many need a social outlet more than this. Exercising in group settings can help grow your circle. While attending classes, you may meet others with similar interests. This can lead to lifelong friendships.

Working Out at the End of the Day Can Help Relieve Stress

Working out can help relieve stress from the office. Have you ever had a day that caused so much stress you had a headache or a backache? This amount of tension can be detrimental to your health. Making time to exercise at the end of every single day can help you release those stresses. It may be wise to keep a light bag of workout clothes in your car and make it a habit to stop by the gym on your way home from work.

Exercise Can Help Keep the Pounds Away

Research proves that exercise can keep the pounds away. There is no doubt that this is true. Those who are successful in losing weight and maintaining it, generally have a habit of going to the gym three to four times each week. If you are looking to shed some weight or keep some weight off, it may be time for you to consider adding exercise to your routine. This doesn't mean you have to go and join a gym; a brisk walk through your neighborhood can do the job.

Exercise is Good for Mental Health

Exercise is fantastic for one's health. If you struggle not only with stress, but maybe with confusion and cloudiness in your brain, exercise can be good for you. Exercise helps the body produce hormones which can help you actually focus and maintain good overall mental health. Research suggests that those who have good overall mental health make it a point to exercise daily at least for 20 minutes.

With all the benefits of exercise, it is clear why it is a vital part of daily life. As you make time to add a workout each day, you may be overwhelmed with good vibes. Now get out there and get moving.
