3 GREAT Reasons to Exercise in 2017…and they are not the ones you expect!
Did you know the Mayo Clinic and Fox News agree that exercise will: boost energy, help with mood and give your sex drive new sizzle?
So, I can hear what you are thinking, “Wait a minute, Melissa, are telling me I am going to have MORE energy if I exercise?” The answer is, YES. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and improves the efficiency of the cardiovascular system. Exercise builds muscle; increased muscle will give you more endurance. When your heart, lungs and muscles are working optimally you will have more energy and endurance for your day!
Are you like me and politics have got you on an emotional rollercoaster? Did you drink too much wine, eat too much or are you partied out with a case of post holiday depression? Well, 3O-minutes of exercise can help change that! Even 3 short 10-minute walks spread out over the day can help you feel better. Exercise stimulates endorphins and other chemicals in the brain that improve mood and self-esteem. Learning a new Pilates or GYROTONIC ® exercise feels good and boosts self-confidence!
Well, being in a better mood and having more energy are a big plus when it comes to intimacy, and there is more to it than that! Studies have shown that exercise contributes to arousal in women and men who exercise have fewer problems with erectile dysfunction. The same endorphins that help with mood also release oxytocin and other sex hormones. These hormones help improve digestion, reduce heart rate, relax the body, lower blood pressure, and decrease cortisol levels.
