The Why

First and foremost, physical activity is important if you want to maintain a healthy weight for your body type. Weight loss workouts are definitely the best way to burn calories. The more you work out and the harder you work out, the more those calories are left in the dust, and the better you’ll feel tomorrow. Remember, while more sedentary life options might feel better in the moment, the long term impact will make you feel worse, and require more work later on to get yourself into healthier shape.

Secondly, exercise is the best way to prevent such conditions as heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and other cardiovascular conditions. Making your lifestyle less sedentary will keep your blood pumping smoothly, boosting your high-density lipoproteins,that’s your good cholesterol, and keeping you in tiptop shape. The more you add workouts to your regular routine, the better you’ll feel, and the better the future you will feel.

On top of that, exercise will improve your moods. You live a stressful life, and you have to put in long hours at work, but simply crashing at the end of the day will actually stress you out more than taking a run, working out with some weights, or what have you, because physical activity is a mood amplifier on the highest level. The more you exercise, the better your body works. And the better your body works, the better your mind works, resulting in a happier, healthier you.
