True Story! You Will Feel Happy After You Workout!

True story! You will feel this happy after you work out (Refer to picture). If you missed my article a couple of days ago, now is your chance to learn more about how your body reacts to exercise. 

  • Scientifically, studies show that even after just 30 minutes of exercise your body will release endorphins. When your body releases endorphins a.k.a. tiny hope molecules you will experience feelings of happiness. 

  • Physically, when you start exercising your body produces antibodies and white blood cells which will boost your immune system. 

  • Socially, you will likely connect with other like-minded gym g0-ers that I lovingly refer to as the #fitfam. Sooner rather than later, and after some trial and error, you will find the right exercise that works for you. You'll pinpoint the perfect time during your day to get your workout in. 

  • Ultimately, you'll connect with an instructor that just gets you, motivates and inspires you. When all of those dots connect, this task of starting exercise will no longer feel daunting and scary. It will truly become part of your DNA. Exercise will be intertwined into your lifestyle. 

When fitness gets intertwined into your DNA and becomes and altruistic part of your life, you will most certainly reap the benefits of exercise both physically and emotionally. The list is actually CRAZY long, but a few of my top favorites cited by the Mayo clinic are...

  • Regular exercise can help combat diseases, and can also work in alignment with a healthy diet and mindfulness activities to help prevent issues related to stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety and even some types of cancer.
  • Exercise hands down improves your mood and makes you happier.

  • Exercise gives you more energy! It delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. 

  • Exercise helps you sleep better! Physical activity (not too close to your bedtime) can help you fall asleep faster and get a better night sleep. 

  • Exercise helps keep your mind sharp and attentive! Exercise stimulates your body to help release proteins and other chemicals that improve the structure and function of your brain.
I know that reading articles of key benefits of anything is truly like the Charlie Brown teacher. The words on this page will truly resonate when you experience it for yourself. I encourage you to take that first step in figuring out what your fitness journey will look like. Plan out your first step and shortly thereafter you'll reap the benefits of you planning, efforts and hard work!
