The Exercise Effect: How Movement Changes Your Life

By Genevieve Cunningham

There's nothing better than a good exercise program. If the goal is weight loss or calorie burn or more energy, exercise is one of your best and most effective choices. But if you don't already regularly exercise, you may not realize that the true benefits of exercise are much bigger. Exercise doesn't just change your body; it can change your life! If you're ready to alter both your health and your life for the better, take a look at these ways moving your body can make a big difference. 

Exercise Affects Your Mood

Exercise makes you feel good. It boosts mood and helps chase away negative thoughts and stress. Those who exercise regularly generally experience better mood stability. They have fewer swings and more balance. They ebb and flow with the ups and downs of life more easily. If better (and more stable) moods sound good, exercise might be just what you need.

Exercise Prevents Disease

We can't avoid all diseases. Sometimes illness is nothing more than luck of the draw. But many kinds of disease can be warded off through regular exercise. If you stay active, it may lower your risk of major diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. And it may also strengthen the immune system to help you fight off everyday illnesses. Avoiding illness -- or at least as much as you can -- is key to feeling more positive about health and life as you grow in age. 

Exercise Boosts Confidence

Let's not downplay the power of self-confidence. When we feel good about who we are, we can accomplish more. We can make better decisions. We can live our lives with less fear and doubt. And exercise is a great way to boost confidence in ourselves. If you lack self-confidence, maintaining an exercise program is one of the best ways to start feeling better about yourself from the inside out.

Exercise is never a bad idea. It brings too many benefits to ignore its power in your life. And though many of the benefits are specific to your health, they can extend to your activities, your family, and your life as a whole! Find an exercise you love, enjoy it on a regular basis and watch the magic it can bring to your life.
