4 Health Benefits from exercising!
‘Exercise’ is the most important engine that kick start every part of our body = Really functioning! With a proper functioning body, we will be able to tune our body back to a healthy state as well as healthy mental. Being healthy, positive, open mindset and the agile cell are what we want to gain from exercising constantly.
Exercising makes us Happy!
Women’s mood is typically hard to control, especially during PMS, Menopause or anytime. It may lead to many vicious cycles such as starting up an argument easily. From first menstrual cycle until menopause, women live with a shifting level of estrogen 雌激素 and progesterone 黄体激素 that impact women fertility pattern as well as brain chemistry and moods. When estrogen drops, women lose a natural source of the ‘feel good’ brain chemical called serotonin 血清素. This make women more susceptible to moodiness, depression and anxiety attacks.
But we are not taking these as excuses! Exercise counters these hormonally-triggered mood swings by releasing endorphins 内啡肽, another mood regulator. Sometimes called the “runner’s high,” endorphins leave us feeling happy and relaxed after a workout!
Exercise prevent Bone Loss and Osteoporosis骨胳疏松
Women are far more vulnerable than men to develop osteoporosis and related bone fracture and loss of height as they age. This is largely because women have thinner bones than men and due to the loss of estrogen or calcium during pregnancy. Hip fracture which is a consequence of osteoporosis, can lead to immobility and premature death too. However, there are many types of exercise we can do to promote bone health, including weight-bearing and muscle strengthening. While for sports like tennis, hiking, aerobics or jogging build bones and keep us strong. Other workouts like lifting weights, using exercise bands or simply standing up and rising to your toes, builds strength, balance and flexibility can help to prevent falls as well.
Exercise keep Weight in Check
Although men and women both tend to gain weight as they age, women have special challenges. Younger women may find that the weight gain of pregnancy can linger long past delivery. Then, as middle-aged women lose estrogen in menopause, the body redistributes fat cells to the belly, which can frustrate weight loss. And because muscle burns more calories than fat, women can struggle with maintaining or losing weight as their muscle mass declines with age. In this case, exercise can counter these factors by helping women maintain and build lean muscle mass that makes us look and feel slimmer. Exercise also burns excess calories that would otherwise accumulate as fat.
Exercise help Improves Sleep
Women have more difficulty falling and staying asleep compared to men and experience more daytime sleepiness. This tendency can grow even more disruptive due to new motherhood, monthly hormonal changes and perimenopausal symptoms like night sweats. Thankfully, exercise has an excellent track record of improving sleep. In one study of 2,600 participants, published in the Journal of Mental Health and Physical Activity, participants who incorporated 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity into their week reported a 65% improvement in sleep quality. They too feel less sleepy during the day.
After understanding all the benefits, we notice that Endorphins is acting a main role in achieving all these benefits! As endorphin leads to mood changes and without a good mood and positive mind, we will most likely feel less motivated to do everything!
