Right about now is when most New Year Resolutions begin to fall off the books. Time, money, commitment, work, family, obligation – there are endless reasons why we can’t continue our resolutions. Fitness resolutions are usually one of the first to go. I get it. It’s hard to stay committed to a workout regimen when “real life” gets in the way. Missing out on that piece of your life, however, makes “real life” harder to live. let me break it down for you:
- Energy: Exercise improves energy levels by strengthening your circulation and your heart, and in return, will improve your energy levels. More energy means you can focus on the things you need to do to make “real life” work for you.
- Mood: Exercise promotes chemicals in your brain that improves your mood, and helps make you feel more relaxed. When you exercise, your brain releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins. Physical activity reduces anxiety and depression, and enhances self-esteem. Who doesn’t want to live “real life” with less anxiety?
- Illness: Physical activity may help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. This may reduce your chance of getting a cold, the flu, or other illness. Exercise also causes change in antibodies and white blood cells, which are the body’s immune system cells that fight disease. Less sick time means more time taking care of “real life”.
