If you do it properly, exercising can help you benefit quite a lot. Physical exercise reduces anxiety and stress, considering the fact that as you start doing exercises at your local gym or Yoga/Pilates studio, your heart starts to beat faster and helps your body release serotonin and norepinephrine.
Also, if you start exercising regularly, you will not feel the urge to drink a huge cup of coffee from your local coffee shop. You will not feel sleep deprived, nor tired. If you exercise frequently, you will feel like you are getting a natural energy boost just by doing pushups and a couple of other exercises. People that enjoy doing physical activities three to four times a day basically sleep like a baby. They sleep peacefully and feel energized when they wake up in the morning. Researchers found out that it is for the best if you work out for two and a half hours per a week if you want to achieve some magnificent results.
As you grow older, you might notice that you are getting a sharp or a dull but persisting backache. A couple of new studies conducted in the States showed that people who are in a great physical shape and enjoy working out regularly are not suffering from backache or any abdominal pain. If you suffer from this kind of pain, you might want to try stretching your muscles and abdomen for at least two days per a week.
Another thing scientists discovered is that people who like to visit the gym or go for a morning run in the park are not suffering from low sex drive- on the contrary, they can get aroused much easier than their peers who are not into physical exercise! If you are feeling like you are having a low sex drive, you should search for Zumba lessons around your neighborhood. They will make you feel like you are interacting with your own body and boost up your energy levels.
When you hit a certain age, you might notice some changes in your body and the way your body reacts. For example, when women go through menopause, they will most likely develop some symptoms that are not really easy to get rid of and can make them feel anxious and tired all the time. Usually, these symptoms are occasional hot flashes and sweating during the night.
A recent research showed that women who love physical activities and are generally leading a healthy lifestyle will most likely not suffer from these unwanted symptoms. Exercise reduces stress, therefore, women will start feeling less anxious and more at ease with themselves as they start to work out on a daily basis.
Dr. Dweck recommends a thirty minute walk in the park or running on a treadmill in your local gym as the perfect exercise for women who are going through menopause. This type of exercise will decrease hot flashes and make you feel better afterwards. Also, cardio exercises are very important in order to fight these particular menopause symptoms.
