Updated on May 22, 2016

Exercise is something that most of us tend to neglect because it’s not something pressing. By neglecting it, sooner or later we find ourselves in a health problem and regret not having exercised on a regular basis. The excuse most of us offer when it come to not practicing sport is shortage of time. However, giving thirty minutes a day to an activity that will have a tremendous positive impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing is worthwhile. And exercising isn’t demanding at all ; if you can’t afford joining a gym , where equipment are available, all you need is a pair of sport shoes and a tracksuit to go for daily runs. Regardless of which sport you practice, it will pay you dividends .The benefits of exercising are countless; it lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol, and lowers the risk of heart disease. Apart from affecting your body positively, physical activity has a great influence on your mood. In our fast paced world, experiencing mood changes has become a concern for many people. Regular exercise is an effective cure to this concern. It’s undeniable that after moderate physical activity, we feel energetic, happy and ready for the rest of the day. The source of these positive feelings is the hormones which our body releases immediately after we exercise.

If you are not used to exercising, your body will reject it at the beginning. You will be tempted to quit and go back to resting and being lazy. However, you have to keep doing it and always think of its great fruits. Soon, your body will adjust to it and the discomfort you felt when you started exercising will be replaced by comfort and vigor. Of course, this will have a positive effect on your productivity, your relationships and your life in general.

Concerning which sport is better, every single physical activity is good for the body provided that it is not exhausting and exaggerated. If you want strength and self-confidence, weight lifting is the suitable activity. If you want to be flexible and graceful in life, aerobics and karate are appropriate. However, the best exercise program is the one which the three important characteristics, namely flexibility, strength and endurance. This type of program can be done at home.

Most experts deem it unwise and impulsive to start exercising without warming up. Warming up prepares the body for the activity. It loosens the muscles and set them ready for more challenging activities.

Experts also recommend cooling down after exercise; because it helps the body comes back to its state of resting gradually. It also prevents blood pressure from dropping quickly and abruptly, because when we exercise our blood pressure level rises.

One of the best ways to remain interested in exercising is to avoid overdoing; when you overdo, your mind associates exercising with pain and exhaustion. As a result, it will start resisting it. It’s better to keep it moderate and enjoying. The time of exercising should be your best times during the day not the other way around. It’s up to you to make it a enjoyable activity.

Apart from the physical benefits of sport, you will also learn to be persistent, patient and committed. You will reap both physical and mental fruits.

At the end, I would like to point out that you will always be faced with forces which will seek keeping you from exercising. However, if you really value your body and deem its well-being so important for your emotional welfare, you will be able to block those forces and carry on. Always bear in your mind that to feel emotionally comfortable, exercising is a must and irreplaceable. No matter how busy you are, find time for physical activity in your schedule.
