Would you like to lose weight? Do you want to tone your muscles? Would you like to look better and feel better? Exercise is good for your body and mind. It keeps you healthy all over!
Take a walk. Ride a bike. Lift weights. Go for a swim. Jog through your neighborhood. Play tag with your kids. Shovel the snow. Mow the grass. Rake the leaves. Just keep moving! Try to exercise at least thirty minutes each day.
It doesn’t need to be a solid thirty minutes. You can break up the time. Go for a ten-minute jog in the morning. Walk ten more minutes during the lunch hour. End the day with a ten-minute bike ride. You’ve done it! You’ve exercised for thirty minutes.
Daily exercise is good for both your body and your brain. When you exercise, your body burns fat. Muscles are toned and stretched. Your heart pumps blood throughout your body.
Exercise affects the mood control part of the brain. It releases chemicals that cause a person to feel happy. Exercise is a mood-changing event. Are you feeling tired or sad? Is work or family life stressful? Would you like more energy? Exercise is nature’s cure!
