Why Is Exercising Always Associated With Losing Weight?

Exercising is definitely the most healthy and effective way to lose weight. It’s pretty much the reason why most of us exercise in the first place. We all want that hour-glass body, don’t we? But exercising has way more benefits that just helping with weight.

For real, why do people always associate exercise with losing weight? Exercising is more than just losing weight but it helps our physical and mental to be stronger too. Here are three huge reasons why you should workout – even if it’s just stretching!

Improves your immune system

Your immune system is what protects you from infection and other chemical toxins. It also ensures you deal with stress well (Which we need!). Short-term exercise programs can empower this sensitive, complex, and crucial regulatory system which controls so much of your everyday health. You’ll be less likely to fall sick or catch a cold easily with enough exercise.

Improves sex life

Keeping your muscles active through exercise helps your body produce more hormones. With more muscle mass comes greater stimulation to produce androgen which help both men and women maintain their sexual functioning. That’s a whole lot of science behind it but in simple terms, it’ll make you crave for more sex. You are also likely to feel more fit and be more fit, which in turn will make you better at carrying out sexual activity. Your emotional resilience will also be greater if you exercise, which also benefits your relationship health. Hello, sexy time!

Makes you sleep better

Although sleep experts recommend that you should not exercise right before you hit the bed, exercise during the day benefits your sleep at night. The physical exertion you engage in during the day helps your body’s clock work better which in turn makes falling asleep easier  Sleeping better at night also lowers your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cognitive impairment. A win-win for sure!
