I’ve heard countless times, especially these days with our economy the way it is, that people simply cannot afford to purchase an at home exercise equipment machine. I understand how this type of purchase could take a hit to your wallet, yet think about the hit to your health it could take if you choose not to exercise.
I came across this article from lifemojo.com titled 10 Reasons to Invest on Fitness which states, “of all the investments one would ever imagine, a fitness program will be the most advantages one”. I wanted to go over a few of my favorites of their top ten, but if you want to check out all ten make sure you read their article here.
Gain Confidence. Whether your fitness purchase goal is to help you lose weight, to help you train, or simply improve your overall health by completing this goal you will gain confidence in yourself and your abilities. By losing the weight, completing your 10K, or being able to run up that flight of stairs without running out of breath, you will gain a feeling of accomplishment.
This feeling is going to not only want to push you harder in your exercises, but in life. By pushing yourself and accomplishing these goals you are going to gain confidence in work and all other aspects of your life making you achieve more than you thought possible.
Increased Energy Level. Regular exercise has been proven to provide greater energy levels. Exercise moves oxygen, which in turn (without getting into the scientific aspects) means more energy to the body.
Enhances Mood. Exercising regular has been shown time and time again to boost moods. During exercise your body releases a number of different hormones. Endorphins are one of those hormones that makes you feeling happy, and this one in particular gives you that “runners high” many speak of.
Getting Proper Sleep. While this may sound counterintuitive with raising energy level, those hormones we spoke up being released during exercise also help you to relax. Along with endorphins, serotonin levels increase during regular exercise. Serotonin is the chemical responsible for happiness and restful sleep. Serotonin also works with endorphins making exercise a pleasurable activity for many.
Last but not least…
Disease Prevention. Though this one may sound like a no brainer, I feel many forget all the added benefits regular exercise can have on your health. Many studies have shown that regular exercise strengthens your heart, reduces blood pressure, lowers your risk of stroke and heart disease, while also reducing your risk of diabetes, breast cancer, colon cancer, and osteoporosis. The lifemojo article stated, “Health experts believe that people who exercise live longer, on average, than those who don’t”.
Preventing yourself from these diseases can not only help you to live a longer, healthier life; but can save you thousands on doctors’ visits as well. Having the health and confidence will help you tackle more at work, which could result in that raise you’ve had your eye on.
Investing in your fitness is going to provide you with numerous benefits throughout your life now and in the future, it will come back to be a very profitable investment!
