Keep reading to learn the incredible benefits and some tips on how you can stick to it as well.

1. Incredible Mental Health Benefits

Perhaps one of the most scientifically studied phenomena is the relationship between physical exercise and mental health.

When you exercise, your body produces feel-good hormones such as endorphins and enkephalins, which is what gives you that “euphoric” feeling after a workout. Endorphins uplift your spirits and make you feel good, which is a perfect prescription for depression.

Most people will view the mind and body as separate entities, when in fact, they are one-in-the-same. Just one hour of exercise per week can prevent depression. It can also reduce anxiety, reduce inflammation in the brain, promotes neural growth, reduces stress, and much more.

Ever notice how tense your body becomes when you are stressed out? That exact physical reaction with emotional feelings is the exact reason why exercising your body can release the tension in the mind.

The trick is to let yourself get fully in the moment while exercising, being mindful of your movement will allow you to focus more on the exercise than the problems that were running through your head. This teaches you how to process and work through your problems better, thus, relieving the stresses that are associated with them.

2. Increased Confidence

This one may seem obvious, as exercise improves your physical appearance, which is usually linked to confidence with a majority of the population, but the confidence benefits go much deeper than that.

True confidence from the core of your being comes when you set goals for yourself and stick to them. This does not matter what exercise you do, or how good you become, the pure action of sticking to a task tells yourself that you have willpower decide on and you stick to it.

To add to that, when you focus on becoming stronger and better at a skill, it will improve your confidence much more than focusing on focusing on your appearance in the mirror.
