Getting into shape, losing that belly fat or toning the muscles should not be the only motivation for having an exercise routine. Facts and research have shown that there are many health benefits of regular exercise and for busy, career-oriented ladies, these benefits are especially useful.
I agree, engaging in regular exercise is not easy, especially if you are a woman on the go. It gets even more difficult if you’re a married because of pressing family needs and obligations. Combining all of these with work can be very overwhelming but if we understand the benefits of the exercise routine, we will find a way to strike a balance.
Yes, I know there never seems to be enough hours in the day and motivation is low at times. There are also a slew of valid excuses why exercise does not fit into our busy schedules: work loads, meeting deadlines, parenting. The good news is that we can actually find a way around all these seemingly gigantic problems and better our lives with the benefits derived from exercising.
It is important to identify any barriers to your workouts like time management and lack of motivation. Finding a workout buddy is a simple remedy to both. A gym buddy keeps you accountable, makes exercise more fun and decreases the odds of you bailing on your daily routine.
Here are 5 benefits of regular exercise:
You soon realize that you sleep better once you hit my bed. Research shows that with deep sleep the body secretes a growth hormone that helps to repair and rebuild body tissues, playing a big part in maintaining collagen matrix and enhancing a youthful glow.
Beautiful clear skin
Sweating actually helps flush cellular debris out of the system, correcting the hormonal imbalances that cause breakouts. Breakouts also have been linked to stress and since exercise reduces stress, you can keep acne at bay with regular exercise.
Telomeres are said to be high in rejuvenation and anti-ageing properties. They are essential parts of human cells that cap the strands of our DNA. They protects our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide and hold the secrets to how we age. Regular exercise produces more of it in the body and keeps aging at bay.
Mental capacity and productivity
You will be alert and focused because good exercise increases the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain. For a working lady, it is vital to stay at your peak performance level at all times and good exercise might just be your ticket to that.
It promotes weight loss
If maintaining a healthy weight is your goal, then regular exercise will do just that. Your cells get better at breaking down fat and use it as fuel and reduce flab on the skin.
If you cannot hit the gym for whatever reason then embrace nature, take a walk in the evenings for about 30 minutes daily and you will begin to feel the benefits mentioned above gradually taking place in your body.
Stay fit, stay healthy.
