The importance of exercise


I’m too busy, I don’t feel too well, I’m tired, it’s too late, the weathers bad. We can always find an excuse. It isn’t everyone’s favourite subject, but before you’re tempted to gloss over this section, let me tell you how exercise and your confidence are linked. Exercise releases endorphins in the brain and these, in turn, raise your mood, self-esteem, and confidence. Being fir helps us to become happier so you need to find a form of exercise that you enjoy and can fit into your routine. It doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. It could be anything from taking a walk each day, going on a bike ride or for a swim. Whatever you choose, taking time away from work, especially if it mostly involves being in an office and sitting at a desk, gives you a much-needed break. If you’re not an exercise fan, fit short bursts of exercise into your day by walking up the stairs, gardening, parking your car further away from the office or train station and going for a walk at lunchtime. If you can find a companion to accompany you this will also mitigate anxieties and make the journey more enjoyable.
