Life-changing is defined as “having an effect that is strong enough to change someone’s life.” We believe the right exercise at the right time will positively impact the quality of your life.
It’s true that activity, combined with a healthy diet, can help you lose weight. Although changes in your outward appearance are great, the benefits of a consistent training program go far beyond your image in the mirror.
7 Ways Exercise Can Change Your Life
Here are seven advantages you can experience with a life-changing workout.
Stress can affect your health without you realizing it. Luckily, there is one thing everyone can do to decrease many of the unwanted symptoms of anxiety and tension. It’s time to exercise!
There are scientific studies to back up the benefits of activity on stress.
- Physical movement can significantly decrease anxiety symptoms
- People who are active reduce their stress-related emotions
- Exercise can be protective against anxiety disorders
- Physical activity improves oxygen and blood flow throughout the body
If you are under an unusual amount of tension or daily life seems overwhelming, you are not alone. Give exercise a chance to reduce the harmful effects that stress can have on your mind and body.
Boosts Your Mood
Recently, researchers have found that intentional exercise can reduce the risk of major depression. High-intensity exercises, such as a boot camp workout, can improve your mental health and lower the onset of depression.
Can exercise help you sleep? Absolutely, and not just because it makes you tired.
The relationship between sleep and exercise has been extensively studied over the years. Physical activity is associated with overall better sleep and a significant reduction in the severity of insomnia symptoms.
Physical activity can help you fight feelings of fatigue and low energy. Science tells us that any movement that gets the heart rate up, the blood flowing, and releases endorphins will raise your energy level.
Supports Heart Health
It’s a well-known fact that physical activity is one of the most effective tools for strengthening the heart muscle. As a result, moving your body decreases the risk of developing cardiovascular health issues, helps maintain proper blood pressure levels, supports normal cholesterol levels, and so much more.
Long, Quality Life
Americans are living longer than ever before. Everyone wants the opportunity to have an independent, quality life, no matter their age. As life expectancy increases, so does the need to adopt habits that support your well-being.
Exercise supports this common goal.
It’s great if you’re getting exercise of any type. However, boosting activity to a higher intensity increases your chances of living a healthier, longer life. In fact, a Harvard study showed people who exercised frequently (more than the recommended 150 minutes a week) were able to lower their risk of mortality by as much as 31 percent.
Brain Health Support
Being active is not only good for your muscles and heart, but it can also keep your brain healthy. Investigators discovered that cognitive decline is almost twice as common among inactive people compared to active adults.
Choosing Your Exercise Program
So, it is not an overstatement to say that consistent activity can be life changing. Not all training routines are equal, however.
The data indicates that High-Intensity Interval Training (HITT) benefits your body, waistline, and brain.
