There are many physical and mental benefits to exercise that can improve your quality of life.

You hear it all the time "exercise is good for you."  But what exactly can it do for you?  How can it benefit your life right now?  Here are the top 10 benefits that you can experience from regular exercise:

Less Stress

Life is just more stressful than it used to be.  You work longer hours, family expectations are higher and you are expected to do more all day long.  Exercise gives you a time to release stress and frustrations that makes it easier to deal with life.

Improves Mood

Exercise releases endorphins, which are the feel-good chemicals that your brain uses to make you happy.  People that exercise feel happier overall.

Better Sleep

When you exercise you use more energy and as a result, you sleep better at night.  You will fall asleep faster and sleep deeper resulting in better rest.

Better Sex life

Yes, regular exercise can help you in the bedroom! You will have more energy and will feel better about yourself because you look better. This will leave you less self-conscious and more eager to try new things!

Better Overall Health

Those who exercise often find that they get sick less often because they have a higher immune system. This higher immune system is generated from eating a healthy diet and living an active life.

More Energy

Exercise sends nutrients and oxygen to the muscles and tissues in your body, helps with blood circulation and makes your heart and lungs work more efficiently so that it is easier to move around.

Lose or Manage Weight

Exercise is one of the best things if you are trying to lose weight or maintain your weight.

Better Metabolism

Your body digests food better and is able to send energy and protein to the parts of the body that need it the most.
