5 Benefits of Exercise

Here is our list to help motivate you to get moving and start exercising;

  • When you get moving, your body creates hormones called endorphins that are responsible for making you feel happy.
  • When you are physically active, your body also releases dopamine and adrenaline that makes your brain kick into a higher gear. This makes you feel more alert, focused and enables you to absorb information easier.
  • Exercise trains the nerve cells in the area of our brain, the frontal lobe, where memory is stored.  This is useful now and in the future as the positive effects accumulate.
  • If you exercise outdoors, the greenery has a calming and peaceful effect on your brains, which automatically allows you to let go of stress. At the same time, all our senses are stimulated, allowing you to feel the wind, see the trees and hear the birds.
  • The more active you are, the better your sleep will be. A good night’s sleep will help you feel more refreshed and alive.
  • Exercise is good for you whatever your age. However latest research suggests the best way to keep your mind ‘sharp’ is moderate exercise 3 times a week. It doesn’t have to be too energetic, as walking and Tai Chi are both recommended.
