7 Benefits of Exercising

1.You might get happier.

Study shows that many types of exercise, from walking to cycling, make people feel better and can even relieve symptoms of depression. Exercise triggers the release of chemical in the brain, serotonin, norepinephrine, endorphins, dopamine_that dull pain, lighten mood and relieve all kind of stress.

2.make your skin look better.

Exercise revels up blood flow to the skin,delivering oxygen and nutrients that improve skin health and even help wounds heal faster. Train long enough, and you will add more blood vessels and tiny capilaries to the skin too.

3. Aging slower.

Exercise has shown to lengthen lifespan by as much as five years now. To see how exercise affects telomeres, researchers took a muscle biopsy and blood samples from 10 healthy people before and after a 45 min ride on a stationery bicycle. They found that exercise increased levels of a molecule that protects telomeres, ultimately slowing how quickly they shorten over a time.

4. Great for your brain.

Linked to less depression, better memory and quicker learning. It is also the best way to prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease, a major fear for many.

5. Amazing things happens

Research suggests that it doesn't take much movement to get the benefits. The micro workout results in identical improvements in heart functions and blood sugar control, even though one workout was five times longer than the other. If you are willing and able to push hard, you can get away with surprisingly little exercise.

6. Recover from a major illness.

That's new thinking, because for decades, people with certain diseases were advised not to exercise. Now scientists know that far more people can and should exercise. A recent analysis of more than 300 clinical trials discovered that for people recovering from a stroke, exercise was even more effective at helping them rehabilitate.

7. Fat cells will shrink.

Body uses both carbohydrates and fats as energy sources. But after consistent aerobic exercise training, the body gets better at burning fat, which requires a lot of oxygen to convert it into energy. One of the benefits of exercise training is that our cardiovascular system gets stronger and better at delivering oxygen, so we are able to metabolize more fat as an energy source.
