Reasons to Exercise That Have Nothing To Do With Weight Loss

I think when most people think about exercising and eating right they’re motivated by weight related goals.  There is SO much more to it though.  I used to punish myself with exercise trying to drop weight.  My obsession with losing weight did nothing but make me miserable and frustrated.  Here are some reasons to exercise that have nothing to do with weight loss.

Here Are Your Reasons To Exercise That Have Nothing To Do With Weight Loss!

  1. Exercise fights depression.

When you exercise your body releases endorphins which make you feel good.  Just 30 minutes a day can make a world of difference.

  1. Helps you to deal with stress.

When you’re stressed about something go for a workout!  Working out is one of the fastest ways to clear cortisol, the stress hormone, out of your system.  Anytime I’m going through something stressful I use my workout as my little vacation from what ever’s bothering me.  Since cortisol is cleared from your system when you workout, you’ll feel calm and relaxed after your workout.

  1. It boosts creativity.

Got a report or paper due?  Maybe you’ve been put in charge of organizing a function and you just don’t know what to do.  Try going for a quick workout and just see how it gets the juices flowing.

  1. It helps people deal with their addictions.

Whether you’re addicted to sugar, cigarettes, alcohol or drugs it’s been shown that exercise can help.  Studies have shown that the endorphin rush released during exercise acts on the same neural pathways as addictive substances.

  1. Exercise saves you money!

You might think it’s too expensive to join a gym or invest in an at home program but if you compare it to the cost of being sick you’ll see that everyone can afford to exercise.  If your health deteriorates to a point where you need to spend a lot of time at the doctor’s and you have to take expensive medications in order to survive you’ll spend far more time and money than you ever would on exercise.

What Are You Waiting For?

These are just a few of the many reasons you should be exercising now.  Don’t let yourself get to a point where you become dependent on medications.  Don’t get to a point where you live in constant pain.  Start exercising regularly now so the future you can be happy and healthy.
