Five reasons to (finally) start exercising

Exercise is not only important because of physical health and beautiful lines, but it also has a positive effect on our mental state. 
Here are some good reasons to finally start exercising, which have nothing to do with banalities like physical appearance
It makes us smarter
"Regular exercise encourages the creation of new neural networks. It helps us focus better and learn faster," personal instructor Hillary Rowland, who adheres to a holistic approach to exercise and healthy living, told Britain's Metro.
Improves memory
"Exercise has a positive effect on our ability to remember and is an excellent prevention against cognitive decline that begins after the age of 45. When we are physically active, our body produces hormones and neurochemicals that slow down the deterioration of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for memory and learning."
It can help with certain mental problems
Exercise makes us happier because when we are physically active in the body, endorphins are released. Studies have shown that exercise has positive effects on the general condition of people suffering from depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorder. In addition, exercise boosts our self-confidence and positively affects the image we have of our own body, ”explains Rowland.
It helps us deal with stress
"Exercise helps us reduce stress, and that's what we all need these days. If you exercise regularly, norepinephrine levels rise in the body, which controls our brain's response to stress."
Encourages creativity
Numerous studies have proven that people who exercise have a more creative approach to problem solving than those who do not have this healthy habit. In addition, exercise raises our energy levels, and the more energy we have, the more productive we are at work.

So, if you can't bring yourself to exercise, you may want to consider all of these positive effects of physical activity on your mental health.

The holiday season for most people is a fun time of year filled with parties, celebrations and social gatherings with family and friends. For many people, this time is filled with sadness, self-reflection, loneliness and anxiety. To overcome depression, try to turn to exercise and thus improve your mood!
