Health Benefits of Daily Exercise
Most women who gave birth share a similar fuss about gaining weight and having stubborn belly flab. In my own experience I put on weight after my delivery and more after that. It was a very tough plight for me since I was a stay at home mom and did all the cooking and eating as my past time. Later on I realized that taking the steps upstairs in my room was more of a burden and it certainly wore me out. I was so tired all the time and felt like i needed more sleep.
Then I came to a point that I initiated a scheme of shedding off some excess weight to achieve a normal life of living like a healthy person. I started walking on a treadmill at least 30 minutes everyday and yet 5 minutes of that run was already a struggle.
I had that yo-yo diet and exercise to begin with but I took my exercise seriously as time progressed. I joined a gym membership to keep me going and attended some cardio classes. At first, I felt like i’m about to pass out but consistency is the key to overcome that phase of struggle.
Some health benefits I experienced myself from doing regular exercise are:
- Increase your energy level
I noticed since I did my extreme cardio exercise regularly my energy levels increased and boosted my endurance to at least last for the entire day of a hectic schedule at work.
- It will aid in sleeping problem.
The increase of temperature or heat that my body generated during exercise is said to stimulate a better sleep quality at night.
- Improve memory and brain functions.
As exercise elevates the heart rate, it will then enhance blood flow in your brain and stimulates production of hormones that is responsible for the growth of brain cells.
- It can reduce chronic pain.
Latest studies show that regular exercise can help relieve chronic low back pain, shoulder discomfort or even fibromyalgia. So if you are one of those individuals suffering such pain then you may consider to take an option of getting into fitness.
- Reduce cardiovascular disease.
Regular exercise is proven to decrease blood pressure and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. It eliminates the composition of body fat and aid in reducing bloated belly.
- Improves proper breathing.
Going up and down the stairs is no longer an issue as your body adapts the resistance of physical activity. Aside from attaining a normal healthy life, regular exercise also stimulates hormones that could improve the mood and wear off depression.
