6 Benefits Of Exercises Aside Weight Loss

Eating right and using the best cosmetics without exercise is not enough to make your lifestyle completely healthy. Exercise is not always about losing weight or building muscles. Research has shown that creating time for regular exercise, irrespective of the age or shape, helps increase your physical and mental confidence. Let’s look at some of the possible benefits of exercising

1.Exercise strengthens your bones

Average weight bearing exercises that require you to work against gravity, like hiking, climbing the stairs, dancing, walking, jogging and running, help build your bones and muscles. These exercises apply tension to the body, enabling it to increase bone density and tone muscles. This makes the bone stronger and reduces the risk of bone diseases like osteoporosis.

2.Exercise and your skin


Regular physical activity improves acne, wrinkles and dull skin. Exercise increases the blood circulation to the skin, thereby increasing its nourishment. The presence of blood and oxygen in the skin helps remove toxins from skin, including those that clog pores. A nice shower after exercising helps to remove the toxins and dirt that has been driven out of skin, leaving you refreshed.

3.Exercise improves brain power


Exercise increases blood flow to the brain and provides it with oxygen and nutrients. Studies have shown that certain exercises could create new brain cells, which boosts overall brain performance. It also reduces the rate of cognitive degeneration that occurs naturally with age by enhancing the release of certain chemicals needed in the brain. Exercise increases the level of special brain proteins that aid in thinking, decision making and learning.

4.Exercise and your mood


Regular exercise has been proven to reduce the risk of depression while maintaining your psychological health. Exercise boosts mood by increasing the blood levels of endorphins which are important for happiness. It also increases the level of serotonin in the brain that plays a role in keeping you in a calm state. While moderate exercises enhances your immune system and keeps you away from infections, rigorous exercises without alternating your workout could weaken your immune system and cause you to break down.

5. Exercise and stress

One of the most common benefits of exercise is its ability to reduce stress. Exercise helps increase circulating levels of norepinephrine in the blood, thereby allowing the brain regulate its response to stress. Exercise at the long run reduces the amount of stress hormones in the body, resulting in relaxed blood vessels, lower blood pressure and a reduced heart rate. Not only does exercise reduce stress, it also improves your body’s ability to deal with stress.

6. Exercise and your memory


Regular moderate exercise enhances your memory and keeps you alert to learn new things. It enhances production of cells in the part of the brain necessary for learning and memory (hippocampus). This could also help in language retention, even for the elderly.


Exercise has benefits way beyond burning fat. It helps you think faster while building your self-confidence and keeping you happy enough to show off some skin. So yes, exercise for both the chubby and the skinny.
