We all know that exercise is good for us. But, do you truly know the amazing benefits it provides to your body?
From physical gains to improved cognitive function, incorporating just 30 minutes of exercise into your daily routine can greatly improve your overall sense of well-being, and help lower your biological age.
In this blog post I've broken down the impressive benefits of exercise to further reinforce how important it is to make time to move your body daily.
The benefits of exercise include:
Helps our bodies relax more efficiently
Improves quality of sleep
Regulates our circadian (sleep/wake) cycle (outdoor activity specifically)
- Increases delivery of oxygen and nutrients in our bodies tissues and cells
- Improves circulation and physical endurance for daily activities
Enhances Brain Function, Focus + Memory
Stimulates blood flow and circulation to the brain
Stimulates the production of new brain cells and reduces inflammation in the brain
Reduces Stress, Improves Mood
Increases brain chemicals that boost mood, lower stress, and improve anxiety
Enhances Mobility, Balance + Strength
Improves balance and strength

Manages/Prevents Chronic Health Conditions
Stabilizes blood sugar and prevents diabetes
Improves circulation, heart health, and lowers blood pressure

For me, I particularly enjoy incorporating physical activity into my daily routines with my family. Cultivating an active family culture is a priority in our household.
