Why is exercise important?

By Joe Young | Medically reviewed by Dr Luke Pratsides

Exercise is the key to the stubborn lock of good health. It has a wealth of benefits. So get pumping. Get moving. Anything to get your heart racing, your breath heavy, and your armpits sweaty. Along with a good diet, it’s guaranteed to improve your life. 

Here’s why.

Improve your mental health

Boost your mood. Stop sitting, get up, and move. It’s easy to get stuck on the sofa or desk. Movement is an easy fix. You will thank yourself later. Exercise releases endorphins in your brain. When you move, you feel better. 

Strengthen bones and muscles

To avoid brittle bones and weak muscles, get building. Exercise has a positive effect on your body. The more you do it, the stronger you’ll feel. The stronger you are, the more you’ll do. Get into a good routine. It will change your body for the better. 

Boost your day-to-day

Climbing stairs, spending time with your kids, playing with your dog, walking to the shop, gardening. Each task will improve by being fitter. Your everyday life is affected by your choices. The more you exercise, the easier your life becomes. Particularly because your muscle mass decreases 3-8% per decade after reaching 30. 

Have more energy

Tired? Here’s the solution. Get moving. Whilst exercising might make you tired in the short term, you’ll generally have far more energy. A workout increases oxygen throughout your body. Longer term, it gives your body stamina. 

Manage your weight 

Exercise is not a luxury. It’s a necessity for good health. It’s the best way to maintain, lose, or gain weight. It burns calories which may result in a calorie deficit. Rigorous or relaxed, it still counts towards your health.

Live longer 

Reduce the risk of getting ill. Most health issues are less likely if you’re active. The chances of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, colon cancer, and plenty more are significantly reduced by being active. 

The numan take

It’s no secret that exercise is important. But it’s even more vital than you might think. It’s the quick fix to life’s problems. Stress. Burnout. Fatigue. Cravings. Exercise in simple terms makes your body work better. It’s the oil to the screw. It’s time to get moving.
