What's to gain?
Exercise is very good for your body and mind. The most important thing is that it burns up extra energy. This extra energy is normally stored as fat. So if you’re exercising every day, this won’t go on as extra weight. Being active also keeps your muscles flexible, works out your heart and lungs and gets the blood going to the brain! It helps you to digest your food better and helps you to sleep better.
Another big benefit of exercise is that it makes you feel good! This is because when your body is active it makes chemicals called endorphins.
These chemicals help your mood and give you a feeling of well-being. Chocolate also produces endorphins, which is why you can feel good after munching on a bar.
Just think how much better it would be to get the feeling from doing something healthy instead!
So exercise makes you feel good about yourself. This puts you on the path to greater self-esteem and super confidence!
