Why exercise is important:
It reduces stress levels and controls the hormone, cortisol to reduce fat.
We all know that stress can affect us physically and mentally. It can reduce our sleep, encourage moodiness and tiredness, affect our concentration and encourage us to eat high sugar foods.
Exercise produces endorphins- chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers – which improve the ability to sleep, becomes a mood elevator and reduces stress.
Exercise also reduces the levels of our body’s stress hormones, such as cortisol. Cortisol is great for regulating blood pressure and the immune system but too much release of this hormone will tell the body to crave sugary, high fat foods, which will result in weight gain usually in the abdominal area.
Exercising will ensure that you feel better, sleep better and eat healthier.
