Benefits of Exercise


Sarah M., Staff Writer

      Even though physical activity everyday is very important, not a lot of people do so. To convince you to exercise, here are some of the benefits of physical activity:


  1. Running and walking can improve your mood. This means that if you are having a bad day, you can go for a run or take a walk. Once you do so, it’ll make you feel good about yourself.
  2. Going for a nice long walk can help to encourage you to be more productive. If you are really tired and unmotivated, you can take a walk and it can improve how you work.
  3. Exercise, such as yoga can help you get better sleep. The pandemic has thrown off a bunch of people’s sleep schedule, and exercise can help put your sleep schedule back on track. 
  4. Exercise can help improve your thinking skills and can strengthen your memory. 
  5. Exercise, such as stretching can help to reduce pain. Stretching helps to make muscles looser and this helps with pain. So, any exercise  or stretch will work when you want to get rid of pain for a while. 
  6. Lastly, it can help with weight loss and muscle gain. Working out can make you healthier and it makes you stronger. In order to stay fit, making a workout plan can help you a lot if you follow it.

     Overall exercise has several benefits and can improve your overall physical, mental, and emotional health.
