Daily Exercise: Keep Moving

Consistent daily exercise can help improve your overall health by helping you lose unwanted weight or maintain your weight. It can also help keep your skin healthy by promoting collagen production and new skin cells.

It can be a struggle to find the motivation to exercise, let alone exercise everyday, but it's important that you keep your body moving to stay healthy.

Here are just some of the many benefits of daily exercise:

 

  • It can improve your skin. Exercising increases your blood flow and improves blood circulation, allowing for your body to deliver oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin to keep it healthy. Sweat can cause breakouts and inflammation, so it's important to shower after a workout. You can also use a towel to wipe away sweat during your exercise routine and minimize any inflammation.

 

  • It can help reduce stress. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins which work to reduce your perception of pain as well as improve your mood. Exercising can also help to just take your mind off of things that are causing you stress by allowing you to focus on the physical activity you're doing.

  • It can help reduce pain. If you experience lower back pain, fibromyalgia, or other forms of chronic pain, exercise may help. Exercise has been shown to help reduce pain perception by releasing chemicals in the body that block pain signals. Various exercises can also help to stretch and strengthen your muscles, thus helping to improve mobility and joint movement.

  • It can promote better sleep. Exercising can often help you fall asleep faster and may help alleviate fatigue throughout the day. The more active you are, the more your body will push you to sleep at night.

  • It improves brain health. Not only does exercising improve your overall body health, but it improves your brain health too. Exercising can help your brain by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and lowering stress. It can also improve cognitive functions in the brain, such as your memory, decision-making, and reasoning.
