Improved mood: Physical activity can help you feel happier and more relaxed. It can also help to boost your confidence and make you feel good about yourself.
More energy: When you exercise, you improve how oxygen and nutrients move around the body. You can help your lungs and your heart work better, which can help you feel more energetic, with better endurance and stamina.
Better sleep: Many studies have shown that regular exercise promotes deeper sleep, and helps you fall asleep faster. A lot of people don’t realize that sleep is a very important component of good health, especially heart health. A condition called sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
