So buckle your seat belts and prepare yourself for some mind boggling facts—regular activity benefits that you were previously unaware of!

It Helps You Fight Depression and Keeps You Happy

Regular activity helps in the release of neurotransmitters like GABA, serotonin and norepinephrine which helps to reduce our stress levels and induce a feeling of relaxation. According to research, expending 350 calories twice in a week, serves to have the same impact on depression as any anti-depressant would. Moreover, these neurotransmitters also create a sense of happiness and keep you euphoric throughout the day.

Fountain of Youth

Regular activity has been found to slow down the aging process by promoting cellular repair. This can be corroborated by the fact that regular activity promotes the release of antioxidants, which then helps wash off radicals and toxins that are causing stress at the cellular level.

Empowers Brain

Indulging yourself in regular activity helps build new synaptic connections and pathways that improve concentration, motor and cognitive skills, creativity and establish new memory centers in the brain.

Confidence and Self Esteem

Almost everyone is aware of the fact that regular activity helps you remain fit and brings you closer to a toned body, upright stature and chiseled jaw bones. With such features, who wouldn’t feel confident in public? This  is exactly what regular activity helps you achieve -Not only will your confidence increase but it will also improve your self-esteem.

Helps You Avoid Constipation

There has been a surging rise in the epidemiologic incidence rate of constipation in US in last few years. More than $250 million is now being spent per year on constipation medicines. What if we were  to tell you there is another way to counter constipation, meanwhile helping you to save money that would otherwise be spent on medication?

Regular activity helps with your bowel movements by regulating blood flow in the digestive system and hence, you can avoid constipation without  spending any extra money.

Resolving Sleep Disorders

If you are struggling with sleep disorders, chances are that you will be taking those sleeping pills to help you lay down with peace at night. But why spend on those pills if you can restore normal sleep patterns by just engaging yourself in some regular activity? Regular activity improves your brain function and relieves stress thereby, helping you have a sound and peaceful sleep.

Regular activity also reduces the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease as it helps to keep the hippocampus active, the part of brain which is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

The more you engage yourself in regular activities, the more its impact multiplies and the more you see its benefits. So get up and throw off that blanket. It’s time for some action.
