Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/13/2013 -- Physical activity is important for several reasons – health, mental wellbeing, aesthetics, among just a few.
And while these are important motivators, those who have been exercising for years offer one piece of advice to beginners regarding motivation:
The number one reason to exercise is because it makes the body feel good - mentally and physically. As activity pumps blood through the veins of the body it lubricates the joints and releases endorphins.
Endorphins are neurotransmitters that stimulate the brain and increase the same sensations that consuming spicy food does, or falling in love, laughing, and other positive emotions and sensations.
That’s during the workout. Afterward, the body continues to produce these endorphins and the sensation helps relieve aches and pains, and continued engagement in activity aligns the muscles and bones to improve posture and core strength as well.
Mentally, these endorphins and engagement in exercise reduces levels of stress hormones in the body, especially for those in sedentary jobs. The distraction that comes from activity boosts mood, confidence, and overall happiness with life. Whether the activity encourages one to focus on their strength and confidence, or causes them to become still and tranquil, the effects are almost immediate and only get better the longer exercise continues.
Health is important, as are physical aesthetics and mental well-being. But those who have exercised for years site the sensation of feeling good as their number one reason for continuing activity. While beginners may start with other motivations, this is the one they turn to when looking to continue exercising long term.
