Exercise - Top 10 Reasons to Start!

Everyone wants the benefits of exercise, but it's just so hard to start. We always seem to make excuses. One of the most popular excuses is we don't have enough time, but in reality if we don't make time now we might just have less time later.

You are the only one who can improve your health; no one else can do it for you, so make time today.

Take a short walk and get your heart pumping. I lift weights and run on a daily basis.

Exercise has so many great benefits, and it's free. Start doing something for yourself and watch everyone around you appreciate it.

Here are 10 reasons to start exercising:

1. Exercise improves your mood. Exercise releases endorphins, the body's own mood-elevating compounds. Most doctors prescribe exercise for depression. After exercising, your mood will become less tense, stressed and depressed. You will feel better and start looking better, too.

2. Exercise boosts self-confidence. Exercise provides a feeling of accomplishment and boosts self-esteem.

3. Exercise improves strength and stamina. The human body is evolved to be physically active. Exercise builds muscle strength, flexibility and stamina. Studies show people who exercise can slow down the effects of aging and memory.

4. Exercise improves memory. Those in the best shapes have the best memories. Exercising your brain is as easy as playing a game of cards. You've probably played memory games where you put all the cards down and you match the two pictures or cards together, and the one with the most sets wins. This is a simple game that can help improve your memory.

5. Exercise improves resistance to colds. By exercising you boost your immune system and help prevent colds.

6. Exercise improves reaction time. Quick reflexes can help prevent an accident. By being alert you can brake in time when someone suddenly stops or turns in front of you.

7. Exercise improves sleep and minimizes insomnia. Exercise feels invigorating, but several hours later it helps the body wind down to sleep. Getting plenty of rest is important to keep our bodies in shape.

8. Exercise helps manage pain. Low to moderate exercise releases endorphins. In addition to their antidepressant value, endorphins are also the body's own pain relievers.

9. Exercise reduces the risk of many serious diseases. Research shows that regular exercise helps prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and other diseases that affect our health as we age.

10. Exercise will keep you looking young and healthy. Everyone wants to look better than they did 10 years ago. By exercising we can help our bodies last longer and improve ourselves physically and emotionally.
