Most of us start a new year with a list of resolutions that usually has “stay healthy and exercise” on the top. Some of us don’t even bother to resolve anything for the new year. Well, list or no list, exercise needs to be a priority for all of us for the immense physical and mental benefits you can reap from it. Here are a few of them:

Exercising releases endorphins into the brain and keeps you high on wellness. “A
healthy mind resides in a healthy body” – they say this for a reason! Fitness and
health need to be your clichéd new year’s resolution.
2. It Increases Strength and Flexibility
It is no secret that working out helps you stay fit and healthy. And when you exert
your muscles and put yourself out of your comfort zone, it enhances your strength

4. It Boosts Your Energy
Exercising has all sorts of physical benefits, and it can help boost your energy and
endurance levels. People who exercise regularly are more likely to feel motivated at
the start and less enervated at the end of a day.
5. It Improves Sleep
In the first few days of exercising, your body may feel exhausted. But that will soon
change if you exercise regularly. It will also keep your mind fresh and let you have a
sound and good night’s sleep. And we know how important that is!
