Staying active can be extremely difficult for many, and so is staying on top of assignments, internships, jobs, and personal life. Our schedules remain hectic as our days progress especially as we continue to pursue our educational goals.
I, as well as many others, find it difficult to stay motivated and initiate a healthy lifestyle. But lately, I realized how low my mood and energy have been. I knew exactly why that was…pandemic weight:,) + my lack of exercise.
It was time for me to make a change and perhaps many of you feel the same.
Lately, I have restarted my health journey, I have been going to the Campus Recreation Center (CRC) with a friend and taking advantage of the great equipment free to use for students. I used to go more often, but I’ll try and stay more consistent.
Need some motivation?
Here is why you and I should consider a healthier lifestyle and help you get on the right track:
- Exercise controls weight
– You can achieve your dream body or a healthier weight
- Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
Become less likely to suffer from conditions such as stroke, depression, anxiety, and Diabetes type 2.
- Exercise improves mood
Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed, and less anxious.
- Exercise boosts energy
Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently.
- Exercise promotes better sleep
If you exercise your body will most likely rest easier at bedtime
- Exercise can be fun … and social!
It might be difficult to get started but remember you don’t have to do it alone. Take a walk with your friends, enjoy nature, there are so many ways to have fun and stay active.
So let’s try and live a healthier lifestyle and try the CRC!
The CRC is great and they even offer group classes and personal training. Check it out!
I will be taking my advice too 😉
