Fitness: More Than Just a New Year’s Resolution

Each year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions to improve their health and fitness. However, most of these resolutions fall by the wayside as life gets in the way. If you’re one of those people who has struggled to keep up with their fitness goals, here are five reasons why you should make fitness a part of your life all year round.


Improved Physical Health

The most obvious benefit to staying fit year-round is improved physical health. Regular exercise helps reduce your risk for chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. It also helps strengthen your muscles and bones which can help reduce the risk of injury in everyday life. Finally, staying active improves your cardiovascular health by increasing your heart rate and circulation.


Mental Health Benefits

In addition to its physical benefits, getting regular exercise has been linked to improved mental health as well. Studies have shown that regular exercise can help reduce stress levels and improve moods by releasing endorphins into our bloodstreams. Exercise also provides an outlet for managing anxiety and depression as well as helping us sleep better at night.


Better Quality of Life

When we are in shape, we feel better about ourselves both mentally and physically which can lead to an overall improvement in quality of life. Feeling confident in our own skin gives us the courage to take on new challenges or try things we might not otherwise have considered before because we know we are physically capable of doing them.


Stay Competitive

Staying fit can also help us stay competitive in our careers or hobbies by keeping us agile and able-bodied even when other people our age may be losing their strength or energy due to age or poor lifestyle choices. This can give us an edge over the competition in any situation where physicality matters such as sports or manual labor jobs like construction work or home repair tasks that require heavy lifting or strenuous activity levels over extended periods.


Live Longer & Happier Lives

Last but certainly not least, staying fit year-round can add years onto our lives by keeping our bodies healthy and strong even when faced with potential ailments that could shorten them.  Avoid the complications from health conditions such as obesity or diabetes, brought on by lack of exercise and proper nutrition habits—get moving today!
