The BeneFITs of EXERCISE
If you would see a person's soul, look at his body.
The body is a visible picture of what you think of your world.
-----Ralph Waldo Emerson
There's one type of stress that should always be a scheduled part of your day: EXERCISE.
Welcome exercise into your life. EXERCISE is something you control. You determine when you will start; you constantly regulate the intensity, and you determine when it is time to stop.
It isn't the stressor that causes health-related problems but rather the feeling of helplessness and lack of recovery. EXERCISE is a means of exposing the body to stress and thereby training it.
As working out on an exercise machine increases the endurance of muscle groups to withstand greater and greater resistance, so all exercise trains the body to not only deal with stress but also to increase its capacity for stress. As the body adapts to the stress of exercise it moves to higher levels of efficiency
and functional capacity.
An Exercise Regimen
Everybody knows that exercise is good for your overall health and heart, but in recent findings, powerful evidence has prove that exercise is great for your brain.
Scientific experiments have discovered that mice consistently using running wheels
had around 2x the amount of hippocampal neurons (brain cells) as the mice that didn’t exercise.
Another study at Colombia University found that humans who had an exercise training program were able to grow and maintain new brain cells and nerve cells in the hippocampus region of the brain. The specific area called the “dentate gyrus” is responsible for helping produce neurogenesis. Even more studies have discovered that those who exercised had
2 - 3x increases in the birth-rate of new neurons!
If your body is in excellent condition, your mind will follow.
