    7 Good Reasons to Participate in Physical Activity
    Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? From boosting your mood to improving your sex life, find out how to benefit from good old-fashioned exercise.The benefits of regular physical activity — range from preventing chronic diseases to promoting weight loss and better sleep. Because we all possess the freedom to choose makes all of these yours for the taking, regardless of age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing? Check out seven specific ways exercise can improve your life.


    1. Exercise improves your mood.
    Need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help you calm down.Physical activity helps to release endorphins. This particular brain chemical is a non-selective, naturally induced pain killer and stress reliever that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed than you were before you worked out. You’ll also look better and feel better when you exercise regularly, this can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem. Regular physical activity can even help prevent depression.


    2. Exercise combats chronic diseases.
    Worried about heart disease? Have you been diagnosed with osteoporosis? Try a prescription for physical activity.Regular physical activity can help you prevent — or manage — high blood pressure. Your cholesterol will benefit, too. Regular physical activity boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol while decreasing triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly by lowering the buildup of plaques in your arteries.And especially for South Texas, there’s more. Regular physical activity can help you prevent type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and certain types of cancer.

    3. Exercise helps you manage your weight.

    Want to drop those excess pounds?This one’s a no-brainer. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn — and the easier it is to keep your weight under control. It does not take major chunks of time to work out. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk during your lunch break. Do jumping jacks during commercials. Better yet, turn off the TV and take a brisk walk. Regular workouts are great, but accumulated physical activity throughout the daywill keep your metabolism humming.

    4. Exercise boosts your energy level.

    Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can leave you breathing easier.Physical activity delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. In fact, regular physical activity helps your entire cardiovascular system — the circulation of blood through your heart and blood vessels — work more efficiently. When your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you’ll have more energy to do the things you enjoy.

    5. Exercise promotes better sleep.

    Struggling to fall asleep? Or stay asleep? Try boosting your physical activity during the day.A good night’s sleep can improve your concentration, productivity and mood. Physical activity is often the key to better sleep. Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Try not to exercise too close to bedtime; you may be too energized to fall asleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, exercise earlier in the day.

    6. Exercise can put the spark back into your sex life.

    Are you too tired to have sex? Or feeling too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy?Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. Men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise — especially as they get older.
