Benefits of a Healthy Diet and Exercise

By Lexi Herrin

Being healthy is important. In order for our body to function properly, we have to be healthy. Diet and exercise are two ways to control your health and exercising properly and having a healthy diet may even have some benefits that you may not think of. Often, people just think of weight loss when they think of diet and exercise but, there are several different benefits of it that can improve your overall health and improve your body function. Some of those include a healthier heart, better cholesterol, improved sleep, improved mood, less stress, aging resistance, and of course weight loss. 

Healthier Heart and Better Cholesterol

There are lots of factors that affect your heart health. Healthy eating and exercise are the two things that impact your heart health the most and they can drastically decrease your risk for heart disease. As for cholesterol, there are two types of cholesterol in your body. There is the good kind that you need and the bad one that can cause a build up of toxins in your veins. A heavy vegetable diet and good exercise can drastically change your cholesterol for the better. 

Improved Sleep, Mood, and Less Stress

Your quality of sleep can be directly connected to the foods that you eat. The more balanced your diet is, the better your sleep will be and the more you exercise, the better your sleep will be as well. Active individuals often have better sleep than sedentary people. Exercise can also affect your mood and stress. When you exercise, your body releases hormones called endorphins that improve your mood and can help you relax. Your diet also affects stress. A bad, sugary diet could cause your stress level to rise. Eating healthy could change that for you. 

Aging and Weight Loss

One of the benefits of healthy diet and exercise includes weight loss. With a healthy diet and exercise you can safely lose weight in a healthy way. Diet and exercise can also help you resist the effects of aging. You can feel and look youthful. You can receive natural antioxidants that can help you fight the aging process and exercise can help you resist the soreness and stiffness of aging.
