Exercise Perks: The Hidden Benefits Of Staying Fit
We all know that exercise, especially weight-lifting will make you bigger, faster and stronger. But a lot of people aren't aware of the hidden benefits of exercise. Here's some valuable things you'll most likely gain as you transform you're body.
Oh yeah, as you shed the flab and muscle up I guarantee you'll be walking a little taller. Let's face it, looking good feels good. The better you feel about your self, the more confident you'll become. A lot of human interaction is on the subconscious level. If you're sending out the message that you're a healthy, fit, disciplined person, people are going to take notice.
A few years ago a study was conducted at Duke University which found that exercise alone was as effective for treating major depression as anti-depressants. In fact, after the study a long-term follow up was conducted, and the doctors concluded that exercise alone was the most effective solution, because subjects who were on regimented exercise plans were less likely to fall back into depression.
Now I'm not saying you have major depression, but if you're like most people, you probably have some days you're down in the dumps. Maybe you're even the type who's highly emotional and gets stressed out easy. As this medical study supports, exercise is probably the best way to take your erratic mood and put it on even keel.
Now hear me out on this one. Luck is a very interesting thing. Some people tend to claim they're just destined to be immortally "unlucky". However, the truth is that the world has a very mysterious way of rewarding those that are deserving. Here's a great quote from Thomas Jefferson on the subject,
-"I'm a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."
Look, when you are transforming your body you are doing it through discipline, dedication and commitment. All of these attributes are very positive things. When you're a positive person and you have positive action, positive things will come your way. It's that simple. You'll get that promotion you were hoping for, or maybe the girl/guy who blew you off before now wants to go out on a date. You might be skeptical, but its the truth. Be disciplined and just see what happens.
Really, as you can see, there is no reason not to start working out and becoming committed to staying healthy. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You'll transform not only your body, but you're entire life. Come up with your workout plan, be determined, stick to it and take note of all the exciting and positive things that come your way.
