6 Ways Exercise Can Benefit You

By Stephen R. Farris

Are you feeling a little down and sluggish these days? Putting on a few extra pounds? Not sleeping comfortably at night? Then chances are you're not getting enough exercise or movement throughout your day. 

Sitting around watching television and snacking on unhealthy food all the time can leave you depressed, low on energy, an increase in your waistline and tossing and turning during the night.

Well, isn't it time to turn the tables and reap the benefits of regular daily exercise. Your body, mind and soul (not to mention your waistline) will thank you in the long run. Check out some of the benefits that you can get from exercising regularly.

Happiness

Exercising regularly can make you happier, less depressed, and ease your anxieties. That's because it increases sensitivity for certain hormones and production of endorphins, leading to a more positive outlook.

Weight Loss

Indeed, exercise will help you lose a few unwanted pounds -- maybe more -- by doing so on a regular basis.

Muscles and Bones

Exercise is a great way to build strength in your muscles and helps build bone density, especially in younger adults. In older adults, it can help maintain bone density.

Reduction in Chronic Disease

Exercising regularly can help reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and different types of cancers. 

Memory

You might not think it would, or does, but exercise can lead to better memory. Exercising increases the heart rate, gets more blood flowing, and sends more oxygen to the brain.

Better Sleep 

After a good workout, your body needs time to recuperate -- wind down. Exercise will help you become relaxed more so that when you do slip off to slumber, the chances of tossing and turning all night long can decrease significantly.

As an added bonus, if you're ready to get started with an exercise, and/or better nutritional health, stop by your local chiropractor like the ones found at The Joint Chiropractic. With over 500 nationwide locations, the friendly, compassionate doctors of chiropractic medicine can offer tips and suggestions that will help you with your fitness and nutritional goals. They can also help give you relief if you're feeling pain in your back, neck and joints.
