A. The Hidden Benefits of Exercise
o Reduce Stress
- Exercise also increases concentrations of norepinephrine, a chemical that can moderate the brain’s response to stress.
o Boost Happy Chemicals
- Exercise releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria. Studies have shown that exercise can even alleviate symptoms among the clinically depressed . For this reason, docs recommend that people suffering from depression or anxiety (or those who are just feeling blue) pencil in plenty of gym time.
o Improve Self-Confidence
- Physical fitness can boost self-esteem and improve positive self-image. Regardless of weight, size, gender, or age, exercise can quickly elevate a person's perception of his or her attractiveness, that is, self-worth.
o Enjoy the Great Outdoors
- Find an outdoor workout that fits your style, whether it’s rock-climbing, hiking, renting a canoe, or just taking a jog in the park. Plus, all that Vitamin D acquired from soaking up the sun can lessen the likelihood of experiencing depressive symptoms.
o Prevent Cognitive Decline
- Working out, especially between age 25 and 45, boosts the chemicals in the brain that support and prevent degeneration of the hippocampus, an important part of the brain for memory and learning.
o Alleviate Anxiety
- Hopping on the track or treadmill for some moderate-to-high intensity aerobic exercise (intervals, anyone?) can reduce anxiety sensitivity.
o Boost Brainpower
- Studies suggest that a tough workout increases levels of a brain-derived protein (known as BDNF - brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in the body, believed to help with decision making, higher thinking, and learning.
o Sharpen Memory
- Getting sweaty increases production of cells in hippocampus responsible for memory and learning . For this reason, research has linked children’s brain development with level of physical fitness.
o Help Control Addiction
- Short exercise sessions can also effectively distract drug or alcohol addicts, making them de-prioritize cravings (at least in the short term)
o Increase Relaxation
- Moving around five to six hours before bedtime raises the body’s core temperature. When the body temp drops back to normal a few hours later, it signals the body that it’s time to sleep.
o Get More Done
- Research shows that workers who take time for exercise on a regular basis are more productive and have more energy than their more sedentary peers.
o Tap Into Creativity
- A heart-pumping gym session can boost creativity for up to two hours afterwards.
o Inspire Others
- Studies show that most people perform better on aerobic tests when paired up with a workout buddy. Even fitness beginners can inspire each other to push harder during a sweat session, so find a workout buddy and get moving.
B. Little Changes for a Better You
o Cut out sodas
o Avoid fast food whenever possible
o Order salad dressing on the side and dip your fork in for flavor in each bite.
o Time your Internet use.
o Instead of sitting and watching TV for family time, go on a walk or play a game of catch in the yard.
o Switch out your butter and vegetable oil for water, olive oil or coconut oil while sautéing.
o Find the parking spot that is the furthest away from the entrance when grocery shopping or at the mall and walk.
o Do squats while cooking dinner.
o Make a workout appointment.
o Start small.
