Everyone knows that doing some form of exercise is a good thing, right? But do you actually know what happens to your body as you exercise? And exactly how it helps you to stay healthy?

The benefits of exercise can come from simply adding a little bit into your daily routine, it isn’t necessary to train hard, but just getting out and about for a short while may help cause the following: improved time management on the days when exercise is carried out, better mental and interpersonal performance on exercise days, workload is managed better – and you are more productive, feel more motivated to work, better concentration and finishing tasks are all accredited to exercise. Everyone needs a helping hand at work every now and then! All this can be gained from 20 minutes of exercise – although of course doing more will show deeper benefits.

While exercising there is a range of positive effects on the majority of your body, and potentially by carrying out exercise these effects will be long lasting and may help to prevent some age related diseases. Muscles need more ATP during exercise in order to keep up with the increase in movement, creating more ATP needs more oxygen, and your heart will then pump more blood to your muscles.  The fitter you get the better your heart, and lungs, can deal with the extra movement. This will also have a positive effect on your resting heart rate, and reduce your blood pressure. Higher blood flow to the brain will mean it can function better; leaving you feeling more focused, as well as creating new brain cells which in turn boost your memory capacity. This can help keep strokes, Parkinson’s and age-related decline at bay. Your joints and bones will also be kept in better condition if you continue to keep up a good exercise regime, preventing the onset of osteoporosis.
