A Reminder: How Exercise Contributes to Good Health

A Reminder: How Exercise Contributes to Good Health

Here are a few reminders of why getting active is good for you!

Reduces stress – Exercise produces endorphins in your brain which helps calm your whole body down. It also can be meditative which gets your mind off of your problems and you focus on the task at hand.
Regulates weight – Regular exercise can help you lose weight and gain self-confidence. It can help you to feel good in your clothes and about how you look.
Fights health problems – We know there are many benefits to exercising but the biggest benefit is that exercise helps fight health problems. You can reduce your medications and gain overall better health. Here is a great CDC article.
Boosts energy – We all need more energy! Regular exercise can increase how you feel on a daily basis. It can give you the energy you need to make it through the day.
Promotes better sleep – Studies have shown that good sleep is essential to good health. Exercise can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Social and fun – when you commit to getting active with other people it not only holds you accountable but it holds your exercise partners accountable too. By joining an exercise class, you are not only helping yourself but you are also helping other people!
Community Education has the best fitness classes in town!  It’s a great way to get active!
