To do or not to do? That is the question that pops out when we thought of working out. Despite multiple documented benefits of exercising circulated around the world (wide web), people are still unmotivated to exercise when the thought arises.
We get it. It’s painful, a hassle and a dread during an exercise which can be a major turn-off, but do you know that the ‘suffering’ only occurs at the first 10 minutes of the workout, and then it all feels like 7th heaven, ending your workout feeling awesome.
We all want that euphoria at the end of a workout without effort. Let you be reminded that nothing good comes for free, it all comes with effort. If you desire to reap the benefits of exercising, be it healthy or feeling happy, you must work for it. So here are your 10 motivations to exercise, which we hope will drive you to move that butt!
FURTHER, FASTER, STRONGER
Exercising makes you stronger, endure tough times better, and higher pain tolerance. It turns you into a tough cookie whom no one wants to mess with. The time and effort you spent on running and lifting weights enhance strength, speed and power to your body. Think of your favourite anime characters or martial art heroes, that is more or less of who you will become.
A HEALTHIER YOU
Exercising powers up your immune system which keeps you more virus and sick resistant. You will be more energised and less prone to getting sick from petty circumstances like getting caught in the rain or consuming deep-fried food. It is vital especially in times of a pandemic or living in pollution-prone areas.
LOSE WEIGHT FAST & SIMPLE
Exercising is a major factor that contributes to weight loss. Forget the extravagant slimming centres and regimes. Each time you exercise, you are burning hundreds to thousands of calories and fats, which keeps you slim, slender and lean. Plus, it shields you from diseases, keeps you healthy, and provides you…
LICENCE TO EAT
Everyone’s favourite thing – EAT! Exercising increases your metabolism and leaves you guilt-free in savouring all the taste of wonder. Oh those delicious cuisines! Eating feels euphoric after exercising, it is a reward for all your sweat expended during those tough sessions. If you love to eat, you better love to exercise!
Reminder: Don’t overindulge!
MAKES YOU HAPPY
Exercise releases feel-good hormones such as serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin and dopamine in your body, having you feeling good throughout the day. It is why some people tend to go out for a jog after a long stressful day at work. It refreshes and rejuvenates the mind and body with plenty of joy and enthusiasm. Exercising is a very helpful emotional remedy.
SLEEP BETTER, SLEEP DEEPER
Regular exercises (especially in the morning) will make you sleep better and deeper at night. Exercise releases endorphins which keeps you fresh throughout the day, and once you are winded down, it will make your brain ready for sleep. In simple terms, exercise makes you feel relax and tired at the end of the day that you can fall asleep easier and deeper.
YOU’RE THE DISCIPLINARIAN
We don’t listen to our teachers because we rather listen to ourselves. Regular exercises will develop self discipline in your daily routine. You wake up early in the morning to exercise and tend to sleep earlier because you need to be up early for your morning exercise. Once it becomes a habit, you have inadvertently made a well-led, healthy and discipline lifestyle.
KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED
Regular exercise generates a high feel-good hormone level which keeps you feeling great all day. Besides that, each completion of a strenuous workout will give you a sense of achievement and a renewed strength that will drive your motivation up in your daily life, helping you to face adversities and to steer to your goals efficiently.
SHARPER FOCUS, THINK SMARTER
An active body maketh an active brain. Exercise stimulates and enhances every senses in your body, keeping you fresh and awake. This gives you a sharper (superhuman) focus and thought. Your mind will think faster and more efficient, which will help you in wise decision-making and swift response in times of emergency.
Exercising keeps you healthy, motivated and strong which culminates into you looking and feeling youthful as ever. Exercise slows the aging process and keeps your metabolism high. An active body generates an active turnover of body cells, renewing each cells to a more stronger ones to improve your overall well-being.
Simply said, regular exercise will make a better version of yourself in terms of body, mind and soul. It is the most safest, efficient, natural and low-cost supplement to a more healthier, happier, and stronger you. Here we are, urging everyone to practice a routine of exercises regularly for the sustenance and improvement of life.
