The Importance of Exercise – Beyond the Physical Benefits

As most of us will know, exercise is important for physical health. Ensuring you stay fit throughout all the stages of your life has been proven to increase your lifespan. It also reduces the amount of health problems that can occur as you get older. Exercising regularly keeps your heart and other muscles in good shape and helps to keep you at a healthy weight. However, in addition to the physical benefits that a workout can give your body, it can improve mental health too.

Exercising helps to release endorphins – sometimes known as ‘feel-good’ hormones. These reduce the perception of pain and trigger feelings of happiness and euphoria. This is especially beneficial for those who are suffering from anxiety, depression or confidence issues. Regular exercise has been proven to improve your mood, reduce fatigue and increase your energy levels.
