We guys don’t normally brag about or disorders, but we do show off our biceps and compare our physique to our buddies, share tips on performance and hide the things we do, to bulk up quickly.
The one thing that does spring to mind when we exercise, is that we feel better afterwards. The reason for this, is that endorphins are released during intense workouts. Endorphins are a feel good chemical produced in the brain, which can help cure anxiety naturally.
Anyone can workout or at least get some form of exercise. The are many, many good reasons to get some exercise. Here are the 7 we can come up with, which offer the most benefits for young, and old:
1 . Manage a Healthy Body Weight
Exercise is a great way to burn up excess energy that you have consumed in the form of food. The food you eat is what fuels your body. The more high calorie foods you eat, the more you need to exercise.
Some people think that you need a gym membership to exercise, not true. Take the stairs, take a walk, cycle, run, jog, stand instead of sit. Do anything to get moving. You will feel better for it, and shed some weight in the process.
2. Prevent Common Health Problems and Diseases
Regularly exercising helps prevent a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, different types of cancer, arthritis etc.
3. Be Happier
When you get physical, push your body a little and do so in short bursts. You actually strengthen your body better than you would doing the same workout for extended periods.
Shorter, more intense bursts of exercise have been proven to have more of an impact on your overall health. Push yourself, set yourself fitness goals and work towards increasing your overall health, little by little.
Bursts of intense exercise allow you to quickly boost the production of endorphins in the brain. Why do a marathon to get the same results? Endorphins improve your mood, boost your immunity and help you feel great.
As the title of the article stated, anxiety can be overcome through exercise. So, stop procrastinating. Start an exercise regimen and stick to it. You will be better off for it.
4. Boost Your Stamina
When you regularly exercise, you tone the cardiovascular muscles. Everything starts working better, including blood-flow, your breathing, your major muscles and your digestion.
When all of these are improved through exercise, you do your body a huge favor. It then has the capacity to increase nutrient absorption into the tissues, this results in:
- Better bone density
- Faster muscle growth
- Better looking skin
- Healthier looking hair
- Better muscle tone
The higher levels of oxygen and nutrients delivered where they matter, help boost your energy and endurance. You will not only feel better, but you will look great and think clearer.
5. Get a Better Night’s Sleep
We’ve already covered the release of endorphins into the brain when you exercise. When these endorphins wear off, you will feel more relaxed and able to get a good night’s sleep.
Quick tip: Do your exrcise in the morning, or at least 5 – 6 hours before hitting the sack. Any form of physical activity is likely to get you energized for a few hours, so avoid the afternoon gym sessions or runs.
6. Get it Up
Increased blood-flow, well, what more do I need to say…….? Exercise helps get blood flowing to the genitals. Exercise has helped women with intimacy problems resolve it.
When you’re feeling better about yourself and are in a better mood, then things normally work better in bed too. Go ahead, get a workout, grab a shower, then break out the wine, body chocolate and cream. (Wink, Wink)
7. Become a Social Butterfly
Exercise can sometimes be done on your own. That would be boring though! It’s a time to get out, meet like minded people and have some light hearted fun. Do what makes you happy.
Life is about connections, so become more sociable and get out there. Make new friends and have fun doing what you enjoy.
Summing up Exercise
Exercise is a great way to get outdoors. You get some much needed fresh air, you get to move those bones and feel great for it.
You also get to meet like minded people and possibly make a few new friends.
It’s all about having fun.
Serotonin and endorphins are released in the brain when you exercise. They improve your mood and help you feel great. They are both a sure fire way to combat anxiety of any kind.
Try to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity per day. Of that 30 minutes, make 10 minutes a rapid workout.
It can be hard to make time, that’s why I say 30 minutes. Block out this time, this is “YOUR TIME”. Don’t give up your time for anything, after all, how are you supposed to function properly if you not feeling great?
Try doing different activities, and do a few that you enjoy.
In closing, check with your doctor or family physician before embarking on any physical activity. (personally, I wouldn’t bother, but, that’s just my opinion)
