How to Maintain Happiness (With Exercise)


Maintaining a healthy body not only will keep you physically in shape, but it will also help your mental well being.  In addition to keeping you slim and keeping many health related issues to a minimum, regular exercise can help your emotions in check.

Make Your Choice

Choosing a type of exercise that you enjoy and challenges you while makes you feel good is the type of exercise that you will stick with – even when the days get tough and you feel unmotivated. If you love to dance, try the local gym’s aerobics classes or rent some DVDs from the library so that you can keep mixing it up while doing something you enjoy. Picking the right type of exercise will not only entice you to keep moving, but will also improve your mood due to the secretion of endorphins; hormones that make your body feel good. This helps release stress to leave you feeling relaxed and anxiety-free.

Perks of Exercising

Another perk about doing the exercise you love is that your body will continuously strive to become better meaning your skill level will improve and can help you build confidence. This newly built confidence will most likely spread into other avenues of your life and thus should not be neglected as a highly desirable outcome of exercise.

Reduce Risk of illness

Physically, exercise will provide a haven that can help you stay healthy. Regular exercise helps reduce the risk of illness and injury by preventing such diseases as heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, high cholesterol and even cancer. Blood circulation is greatly improved which means that your cardio-respiratory system will be in top shape. Increased blood flow also helps to boost the immune system reducing the risk of catching common colds and flu.

Healthy Appearance

Increased blood circulation is also great for the skin, hair, and nails giving you a more healthful appearance; will help you to have more quality sleep; stay lean and slim; have better concentration; and even slow down the aging process. By adding regularly scheduled exercise days into your life, you will be prolonging the quality and length of your life.

The best part about exercising is that you don’t have to devote a large amount of time for it. Many exercise classes have been revamped to provide serious workouts in as little as 30 minutes. This modest amount of time of a daily basis can help keep you healthy and happy without having to squeeze in unrealistic workouts.
