It’s no secret that exercise can make us healthy and fit, but there are plenty advantages of regular exercise that you might not immediately think of. First, research has shown consistently that people who exercise are happier and less stressed. Time spent exercising also might cut into time spent on less healthy activities like sitting in front of your TV. Another hidden benefit of exercise is that it can often transition into a career – plenty of people who regularly exercise become fitness instructors or personal trainers. Finally, exercising often can be a great motivator for others in your life, prompting them to work out more regularly and reap the same health benefits.
- Exercise stimulates your body to release chemicals which boost your mood without taking pharmacueticals.
- Becoming proficient in fitness can lead to extra income via side jobs as a fitness instructor.
- Engaging in exercise can motivate others in your social group to do follow suit, thereby promoting better health for the people you care about.
“Studies show that people who exercise almost every day report being happier, sleeping better, and feeling less stressed than they did before regular exercise.”
