Fitness should be a key component in anybody’s life simply for the fact that it makes you feel better. It is recommended that you get 30 minutes a day by most experts standards. But in my opinion you should do at least 40- 60 minutes of exercise a day.
The Benefits Of Being Fit
One of the first benefits that come to mind is confidence or raised self esteem. After all when you feel good you look good and that definitely shows in a person if they take care of themselves.
Let’s face it people that exercise have or seem to have more energy than people that don’t. Let me give you an example. If you where to do cardio in the morning before you went to work do you think your day would run smoother and you would be more upbeat for the day? You beat you would. Working out might seem like a chore at first. You might even feel like you have no energy to workout. However remember this, working out on a regular bases give you more energy in the long run.
I am drawing from personal experience here but whenever I am on a structured program or workout regime, I become more organized in other areas of my life. Area’s such as work, friends, family and leisure time. So try making fitness a part of your life. You never know what you might be able to accomplish.
Goal Setting & Achievement
Doing any kind of fitness program will help you with goal setting. Not only that it will help you in reaching those goals. Make sure when you set your goals they are always realistic and achievable. If your goals are really easy to reach your sub conscious mind won’t mind helping you reach your goals. But if your goals are set too high, then you might look at it as a negative if you don’t reach your goal, even though your still achieving. So set small, realistic, and achievable goals and you will get to your long term goal in no time.
Weight Management & Reduction
Of course with fitness brings weight loss and fat reduction but only if you have a balanced healthy diet. Weight loss however should not be the only reason why you embark on a fitness goal. Make it part of your lifestyle, so that it is something you do whether you are happy, sad, or tired.
These are just five reasons why fitness is important but the biggest thing you should take away from this article, is to make fitness a priority, make it part of your daily life and you will have a better life because of it.
