Routine moderate exercise offers an assortment health benefits!
I find that routine moderate exercise is a great way to neutralize, less than perfect, health habits. We all overindulge from time to time, consuming too many calories, sweets, or the occasional “junk food” on the run. And we all periodically fall prey to life’s stressors, from overworking, or over worrying about real, or imagined problems. Life can take its toll on your health. Exercise helps make up for any health shortcomings you may have. Sweat those toxins out, get your heart rate up, decompress on a good walk in the woods. Yes, exercise is the great neutralizer.
High Blood Pressure
Regular physical activity helps reduce blood pressure in those with high blood pressure. Physical activity reduces body fat, which is often the main cause high blood pressure. Exercise helps reduce stress, another trigger for high blood pressure.
Heart Disease, Stroke, Cardiovascular Disease
Daily physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke by strengthening your heart muscle, lowering your blood pressure, raising your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels (good cholesterol) and lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels (bad cholesterol), improving blood flow, and increasing your heart’s working capacity. Optimizing each of these factors can provide additional benefits of decreasing the risk for Peripheral Vascular Disease.

Physical activity helps to reduce body fat by building or preserving muscle mass and increasing one’s metabolism-the rate by which cells burn calories.
When exercise is combined with proper nutrition, positive health benefits including preventing and eliminating obesity, a major risk factor for many diseases, becomes a reality. Losing that extra weight can make a huge difference in how you feel.

Live Longer and Feel Better Through Exercise
Physical activity helps reduce stress, boost your happy hormones, and adds years to your life.
Take a walk or head to the gym for a quick workout. Nothing beats stress like being active. Working up a sweat can help manage physical and mental stress.
Exercise helps boost your concentration and increases levels of the happy hormones, serotonin and norepinephrine.
Exercise releases endorphins, feel good chemicals that create feelings of happiness and euphoria. Studies have shown that exercise can reduce episodes of anxiety and depression. In fact physical activity is one of the most powerful mood elevators there is, certainly safer than taking prescription antidepressant medication.
Clinical studies have proven that in some cases, exercise can be just as effective as antidepressant drugs in treating depression. Simply working out 30 minutes a few times a week is often all you need to keep your happy hormones, happy.
Improve Your Self-Confidence.
Being proactive, taking the initiative, helps foster self-confidence. Knowing you’re doing something good for yourself, for your health, confirms you can play an active role in getting healthy and staying healthy.
Increase Mental Clarity, Reduce Potential Mental Decline
It is true if you snooze you lose, use it or lose it. Physical exercise as well as mental exercise keeps your mind sharp.
As we age our risk of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, or dementia start to raise their ugly head. While exercise and a healthy diet can’t “cure” Alzheimer’s, they can help prevent the brain against cognitive decline that begins after age 45. 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. Regular physical activity boosts memory and ability to learn new things. Getting sweaty increases production of cells in hippocampus responsible for memory and learning.
Fight Off Addiction
The brain releases neurotransmitter dopamine, the “reward chemical” in response to any form of pleasure, exercise, sex, drugs, alcohol, or food (sugar). Unfortunately, some people become addicted to dopamine and dependent on the substances that produce it, like drugs, alcohol and or excess sugar.
Reduce your sugar cravings by adding exercise to your daily routine.
