When you are juggling a lot of commitments it?s very easy to skip exercising so that you can get other things done. But you need to make your health a priority.
Carrying a lot of belly fat can lead to health problems. If you don?t make your own health a priority you could develop diabetes or other serious health conditions.
Exercise is important
Exercise does more than help you lose weight. Regular exercise builds strong muscles and keeps your body healthy.
Human bodies are made to be active. Sitting behind a desk all day is not healthy. The more you exercise the better you will feel. You need to get up and get moving at least once a day.
The mental benefits of exercise
The benefits of exercise aren?t just physical.
Working out is a fabulous way to manage stress and anxiety.
When you exercise your brain releases endorphins. Endorphins are what makes you feel great after you win something, or when you spend time with people that you love.
You can get that same feeling of joy and happiness from working out. And you can feel that way every day if you exercise every day. …
Put yourself first
Sometimes it?s ok to be selfish and put yourself first. This is one of those times.
Your health needs to be a priority and you need to take it seriously. Make time for exercise because you need it to feel better and look better.
Think you don?t have time to exercise? You have more time than you realize.
Try some of these easy ways to make exercise a priority every day:
- Get up 30 minutes earlier. Go for a walk or do some yoga
- Take a 10-minute walk on your break at work. Do that twice a day.
- Take a walk on your lunch break or go to the gym
- Park your car in the back of the lot so that you have to walk further to get to and from work each day
- Take the stairs.
- Walk around the entire store once before you get what you need and leave.
