The Top Reasons for Daily Exercise

By Donna Stark

Exercise is always top on the list of recommendations given out by medical professionals and for the most part, it's easy to understand why. It does a body good. But what exactly does "doing a body good" mean? Apart from looking better, what can daily exercise bring to your life? Well, a lot! Exercise is a great activity to improve your mental, physical, and emotional health, and if done correctly, can change the trajectory of your life. Take a look.

Improves Heart Health

Your heart works 24/7 without so much of a complaint, so don't you think it is time to give it a gift? And yes, that gift is daily exercise! Did you know that exercise can be as powerful as some of the heart medications that are prescribed daily? That's right! Exercise helps to lower blood pressure and improves the heart's ability to pull oxygen from your blood.

Burns Calories and Fat

If you are trying to lose a few extra pounds, you need to add exercise to your daily to-do list. Whether you are just starting with 30 minutes a day or have advanced to a couple of hours at the gym, it really is one of the best ways to burn calories and fat. On top of that, losing weight will take some of the stress off your heart too!

Keeps Joints (and Your Spine!) Healthy

In addition to strengthening the muscles in your body, daily exercise can also improve the function of your joints. Healthy joints are often taken for granted until they are no longer healthy anymore, and the process of becoming unhealthy can happen faster than you think! Reduce your risk of joint dysfunction and joint-related injuries and surgeries by staying physically active.

Improves Mental and Emotional Health

Exercise directly affects your mental health too by releasing your body's feel-good chemicals. Daily workouts are often recommended for those who are struggling with stress, anxiety, mood swings, and depression. And since your solo workouts can easily be turned into group workouts, exercise is a great way to strengthen and nurture some of the relationships in your life too!

Strengthens Immunity

Last of all, exercise has been linked to stronger, more robust immunities in those who partake. This can lead to fewer sick days, fewer doctor visits, fewer prescriptions, and fewer health complications. There is no better gift to give yourself than the gift of good health!

A Better Understanding

The positive effects that daily exercise can have on your body and mind are too good to ignore, so try to add as much movement to your days as you can. You won't regret doing so, and before you know it, you will start to feel (and look) better than you ever have before!
