Fitness is about far more than looking good in your clothes and boosting your confidence – though that’s an added benefit for anyone looking to get into a good routine. Exercising and adding some movement to your day benefits you just as much on the inside as it does the out. Less than an hour of your favourite cardio, strength training or sport a day can work wonders for your brain and just about every other part of your body, too.

Why fitness improve your physical and mental health? Here are just some of the reasons why exercise benefits your body and mind:

Reducing the physical and mental symptoms of stress

There’s a reason that medical professionals consider stress one of our biggest modern-day medical problems. Much of our stress and anxiety exists thanks to things going on outside our control. From high blood pressure to trouble sleeping, general anxiety to digestion and stomach issues, stress affects everything. Fitness gives you the power back to feel better.

One of the most natural combatants to stress is exercise. Not only are you getting all those fight or flight instincts out there, but you’re also naturally helping your heart rate and giving yourself those feel-good endorphins to make your day that bit more bearable. So if you’re feeling less stressed due to fitness, that’s because those good hormones are being released throughout your body

Improving digestion and eating habits

Much like stress can affect your brain and body, your lifestyle can impact many vital aspects of what’s going on inside. Little exercise and a poor diet can make you feel sluggish and influence how you think throughout the day. Exercise provides a reset on a tired and unfocused body, allowing you to get yourself into healthier eating habits and ensuring you’re fuelling your body in the right way.

While changing diet habits is challenging for everyone, getting fit can be a great start to making your digestion and body feel better overall. By burning energy properly, you’ll sleep better, feel better, and feel less stuck in a rut than before. Fifteen to twenty minutes of an elevated heart rate can help people make healthier choices by putting them in a better mindset. Fitness improves your mental and physical health by giving you what’s necessary to make your body happier.

Better self-esteem and cognitive function

Fitness may improve confidence by changing how we look on the outside, but it also impacts how we feel on the inside too. Even tiny victories like jogging up the stairs without running out of breath can make you feel better about yourself. A happier, healthier body is a body that makes you feel better about yourself – from waking up feeling refreshed and recharged to being able to walk further and do more.

 

if its easy.. then your not doing it right.

The more you get fit, the more you’ll enjoy the way your body feels as a result. Not only can you feel the change for yourself, but activities that otherwise could be difficult – such as hiking, group sports or marathons – will be far easier. With that comes confidence, providing the feedback your body and brain need to feel good day in, day out. That reward from fitness keeps you exercising and improving.
