8 Most Powerful Reasons to Exercise Regularly

If you’re like any other normal person, you’re probably finding yourself wanting to exercise more, but also wondering why on God’s green Earth you should. It’s a valid question and there are a lot of answers out there on the internet. Sadly, most of them don’t really have a lot of substance and will only keep you motivated for a few weeks. I’m not saying the reasons down below will be any different, I’m just saying the other ones on the internet usually aren’t. Anyway, here’s why exercise is good for you.

It Relieves Stress

Exercise allows you to focus your mind on physical activities and will release a lot of tension in your muscles that’s been building up from stressing out too much. If work or life in general has you stressed out, nothing is going to help you like breaking out a sweat every now and then. Trust me, I write things on the internet so I know what I’m talking about.

It Boosts Confidence

Working out is going to do amazing things to your body but even if that doesn’t happen right away, the sheer knowledge that you’re doing something that’s good for you in the long run is going to give you a huge boost in confidence. And the longer you keep it going, the bigger that boost in confidence is going to get. Just don’t let it get to your head, I guess. There’s a balance we need to strike here.

It Increases Endorphines

Stuff like the runner’s high are nothing more than a huge boost of endorphines in your system. They’ll make you feel happy, content, and completely relaxed. Some people would even go as far as to say it’s comparable to having an orgasm, which I guess is something everybody likes.

It’s A Nice Distraction

If your mind is feeling all over the place, it can sometimes help to reduce your brain activity to just ordering your muscles to push a thing slightly higher. I know, it sounds dumb, but sometimes dumb is what our brain needs to calm down and center itself.

It’s Fun

There’s no reason why your exercise routine needs to be boring. Doing yoga, aerobics or some spinning is instantly going to make your workout a lot more fun than just the regular 3×10 rep sets. And if that doesn’t do it for you, you could always try convincing a friend to tag along with you!

It’s Amazing to Meet New People

You’re never going to be alone at the gym, so if you’re looking to meet new people it’s the perfect place to find new friends or be introduced to other people. And at least you’ll know that you have something in common with the person you’re taking to: you’re both trying to get into shape!

It’s Good For Your Health

This pretty much goes without saying, doesn’t it? Working out is going to help your health a lot in the short and long term. You may not see the results from the very first day, but your body is definitely going to reap the rewards from every minute you spend doing exercise.

It Boosts Your Creativity

Maybe a little nuance is in order here: exercise won’t actually make you more creative. It’ll just open up your mind and help you relax so you can find creative solutions more easily. Sometimes, relaxation can do wonders to your mind and soul.
