How Exercise Can Strengthen Your Health

By Donna Stark

Many of us have gone through the better part of our lives without needing to worry about our immune system. We know it's there and we trust that it is doing the best it can to protect us from illness and disease. But lately, things have changed and so have the discussions on immunity. You already know that a healthy diet is key to boosting your immune system, but do you know the same can be said about exercise?

Exercise Strengthens Your Health

One of the most powerful things you can do to reduce your risk of getting sick is to exercise daily. Your immune system produces natural antibodies and anti-inflammatory agents with every workout you engage in. So, the more you exercise, the more benefits you will receive. Take a look at a few more reasons why daily exercise can help keep the doctor away.

  • You will sleep better - Sleep isn't just about resting from the day you just had and recharging for the next, it's also the time your body uses to improve its immune cells. Regular exercise supports a healthy circadian rhythm and encourages better sleep each night.
  • Your stress levels will be reduced - Your brain and immune system are constantly communicating with each other. There is a balance between the two that keeps you healthy from one day to the next. So, when something, like stress, comes in and disrupts what they have going on, you may be looking at an increased risk of getting sick. That's where exercise steps in. Exercise helps to break down and reduce the effects that stress has on both your immune system and overall health.
  • You can maintain a healthy weight - Excess weight can lead to more problems than just heart disease and diabetes. It can influence your immune system in many ways too, which is why exercise is so important! Daily exercise can help you burn calories, drop pounds, and maintain a healthy weight so you can look forward to a stronger immune system.
  • You will feel happier - Regular exercise can help stabilize moods and reduce feelings of depression. You may start feeling happier, which can have a domino effect in other areas of your life. Perhaps you will start cooking more meals at home and practicing a little more self-care? Maybe you will even feel good enough to make those lifestyle changes you have been thinking about for years?

Exercise is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. So, what are you waiting for? Get moving and start looking forward to a stronger immune system and healthier days ahead!
