- Working Out Makes You Happy
Even a quick workout will repel any bad mood. Working out boosts production of brain chemicals that will help ease anxiety and stress. Or in the words of Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” So if you’re not going to work out for yourself, at least do it for your significant other.
- Strengthen Memory
Can’t remember where you left your car keys; or even worse, forgot your age (I could have sworn just yesterday I was 25!)? Working out can help you get your memory into tiptop shape. Just a single exercise session can result in higher levels of memory strengthening hormones. Keep working out and before you know it you’ll remember everyone from your graduation class without even using Facebook.
- Boost Creativity
Exercising can help you think of the next great idea. Studies have found that those who exercised four times a week were able to think more creatively than those with a more sedentary lifestyle. You’re in good company when you workout to get your creative juices flowing; Steve Jobs often took walking meetings to help brainstorm new ideas.
- Helps You Feel More Confident
Self-confidence is all based on what we think we can do and seeing ourselves accomplish surprising feats. So watching your body run that extra mile, not stop during the entire Zumba class, and upping your weights will not only tighten and tone those limbs, but your confidence will be through the roof. Go get your workout in, see what amazing things your body can do and then go get that raise, date, or new swimsuit.
- Minimize Sick Days
Research shows that getting to the gym at least 2-3 times a week will give your body a stronger ability to fight off bacteria and viruses. One thing we know for sure is burpees are less brutal than body flu. Totally worth it.
