What Working Out Can Do For You
A mile or two a day can do so much for you....
Some days I work out hard, and others I might just go on a nice run. If I ever talk myself out of a workout, I regret it so much! I just got home from a run, and the way I feel right now is so awesome. I feel energized and my body feels great. We all know that exercising controls weight, but there is so much more it can do for you that you will notice after working out.
According to the Mayo Clinic, exercising battles health conditions and diseases such as: diabetes, depression, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, arthritis, and metabolic syndrom. And even better, it doesn't matter how overweight you are to start with! The minute you start working out, you are making a healthier you.
Exercise increases energy and puts you in a better mood. I can attest to that! After a long day at work, I come home very groggy....but it's nothing a run around campus can't fix!
The Mayo Health Clinic also tells us that exercise can help you sleep better and better sex life. If you are having problems with either of these....go run.
Basically, exercising is good for you...there is no reason not to do it. Everyone has 10 minutes they can spare to take a jog around town, ride a bike, dance... And once you start exercising regularly it is addictive! It is fun! If you haven't been in the gym for a while, or ever, now is the time to start. You will start to love exercising and see results in no time if you stay determined.
