It’s that time of the year when everyone gets off their butts and gets on a health kick. Here are three key reasons why you should train past January and change your life.
1. Improve mental well-being –
People rarely start exercising for their mental health, but this should be a main reason. Regular exercise gives you an outlet to remove your stresses and reset your brain. On top of that you sleep better, ward off depression and improve self confidence. Pushing yourself in a training session also develops mental toughness so your coping mechanisms are better tuned for what life throws at you.
2. Improve daily living –
Exercise doesn’t need to always be about performance. Building functional muscle through regular weight training will give you a better quality of life.
Incorporating strength training and stretching to your routine will prevent falls, improve your posture, cut down on body pain and improve bodily functions like weight management, organ performance and a boosted immune system.
3. Inspire others and your kids –
Actions speak louder than words, as you progress through your fitness journey people will take notice. Your positive attitude will rub off on your friends, family and coworkers and they too will re-evaluate their own health.
More importantly, having your kids in an active family will set up long term habits. They see everything so why not let it be positive.
