Research proves that physical activity stimulates the release of hormones to boost mood, jumpstart energy, and combat stress. “There are many significant physical and mental benefits of including exercise in your daily routine,” said a spokesperson for Alba International.
Exercise has been proven to boost stamina, fights fatigue, as well as promoting a calm, focused state of mind – making it easier to produce quality results while working.
With this in mind, the firm has shared their four biggest benefits of exercise:
Gives you more energy.
According to a study conducted by the University of Georgia, just 20 minutes of low-to-moderate intensity exercise performed three times a week can increase energy levels by 20%, and decrease fatigue by a staggering 65%. Regular activity also increases circulation and strengthens the heart muscle, which results in more endurance to power through the day.
It is widely known that exercise causes the brain to release endorphins, chemicals that minimise discomfort and promote feelings of happiness and well-being. Experts at the American Psychological Association revealed that those benefits begin within five minutes of starting a workout.
As well as increasing feel-good endorphins, exercise has been proven to lower levels of stress hormones in the body which help to stay calm. Exercise doesn’t just increase feel-good endorphins. One study conducted on animals found that regular exercise reorganises parts of the brain, making it less reactive to stress.
Neuroscientists have proclaimed that exercise fights inflammation in the brain and stimulates the growth of fresh neurones. Experts at Harvard Health surmised that could be why the parts of the brain related to thinking and memory are larger in people who exercise regularly compared to those who don’t.
“A healthy body leads to a healthy mind, and those two together are a powerful combination,” stated a spokesperson for Alba International
