Exercise is often looked over as a piece of the puzzle in beauty. Exercise is so good for you in so many different ways. The most obvious reason exercise is good for you is to help you maintain a healthy weight and physique.

Some people get depressed at the thought of exercising but in reality, exercise actually reduces depression, anxiety and stress while improving your mood and the way you feel about yourself.

Doing weight-bearing exercise promotes bone formation and may prevent many forms of bone loss like osteoporosis. Daily physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke by strengthening your heart muscle, lowering blood pressure, raising high-density lipoprotein (HDL, good cholesterol) and lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL, bad cholesterol) and improving blood flow. Exercise promotes better sleep too.

Exercise doesn’t have to suck up all your time either. Most people use the excuse that they just don’t have time to exercise and with the speed of todays society, I’m sure they have a valid point. But if you could find an exercise program that fit into your schedule because it was quick and very effective, there is no reason left not to exercise.
