We all know that exercise is good for your body. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
But did you know that exercise is good for your mental wellbeing as well? Studies have shown that exercise can improve your mood and decrease the amount of stress-hormones in your body. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
If you are pregnant, exercise is especially important for your own wellbeing as well as that of your baby. Studies have shown that regular exercise in pregnancy helps achieve faster and easier labor and birth.
