EXERCISE AND IMPROVED HEALTH.
There is a direct link between physical activity and improved health. Even though the primary benefits of exercise are physical, they also improve your mental and emotional well-being in the short and long term. The following are some of the ways that exercise can benefit our mental health:
Increasing serotonin and endorphin levels
Improving sleep quality
Concentrating on positive activities rather than negative thoughts
Providing social interaction
Stimulating the release of chemicals that improve memory and learning
Increasing the size of the hippocampus, a memory-controlling region of the brain
Weight loss, increased cardiovascular capacity, increased strength, and a lower risk of heart disease are all well-documented benefits of exercise on physical health.
Exercise is a stressor on the body, yet it protects against the beginning of neurodegenerative disorders and contributes to healthy brain performance when done in moderation.
During and after a workout, it's usual to feel more focused, invigorated, euphoric,andh also serves as a beneficial stress release. We will feel more accomplished and confident if we workout on a regular basis. Exercise has been shown to lessen the likelihood of cognitive decline and depression, two of the most common causes of disability. Depressed people have reduced glutamate and GABA levels, which can be reversed with regular exercise.
