The Benefits of Regular Exercise

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

​We all go through phases of exercising to lose weight, but some of us make exercise a
regular part of our lives, not just to lose weight, but to improve both health and fitness. Exercise has many benefits. Here are just some of them.

Improving physical coordination
Taking part in fitness activities or sports can help improve your coordination. Team sports such as volleyball rely on working with other members of your team. The maximum contact with the ball before getting it over the net is three, so this means each hit or touch of the ball counts. As you improve your coordination skills, you’ll become a better player.

When the weather is colder, it’s difficult to motivate yourself to take part in outdoor sports. So, if you want to find the best volleyballs for indoor play, you can read the reviews on Ace Volleyball. Although your team’s performance is mostly down to their skill and increased abilities over time, getting the best equipment, such as a professionally recommended volleyball, can help you and your team get in the right mindset for success.

Mental health
Exercise can improve your mental health. While severe depression and other mental
illnesses will still need to be treated by a professional, exercise can help. Getting out of your house will always be more beneficial for your mental health, and being active produces endorphins, which make you feel happier naturally. This is a healthier habit to form, without the unhealthy use of alcohol or unprescribed drugs.

Making friends
When you take part in a team sport or join a local running club, one great thing is meeting new people. You all have something in common; an interest in fitness and your chosen sport or activity. You can motivate and encourage each other, so if one person is struggling, the others in the team or group can keep them going.

Many sports teams have social events too, so you can improve your fitness and expand your social circle at the same time.

Improved confidence
There are so many reasons exercise can improve your confidence. Reaching your goals is a big confidence boost, making you feel more capable of tackling other things in your daily life. As you lose weight, improve your sporting abilities, or see positive changes in your health, you are more likely to feel confident. If you compare this to staying in and bingeing on the latest box-set while eating unhealthy food, it’s not difficult to see which is better for your physical and mental health. If you’re making progress through exercise, then you’ll be more inclined to eat healthier foods and take better care of yourself, which will also boost your confidence in other areas of your life.

The main motivation for exercising is often weight loss, but as you can see, there are other benefits too. These can go beyond the physical improvements and give you a much-needed boost to pursue other opportunities which can further improve your lifestyle.
