Why Excercise is a must No Matter What

Although Supplements and herbs can be absolutely amazing and fill some of the holes we have in our body's chemistry, it's still very important that everyone(and I mean everyone) gets proper exercise. Those of you who do exercise regularly probably notice that when you take a break from your normal exercise routine for 3-4 days you just don't feel right. In this article we'll go over the various reasons why exercise is essential to both your mental and physical well-being.

When it comes to happiness and well-being, you just can't trick your body. Our bodies are wired to reward us when we do something that it perceives to be necessary for our survival. One of these things happens to be exercise. Although exercise may not seem necessary now that we have cars, diet pills, and proper shelter, in the earliest days of mankind it most definitely was. Our bodies are just not hard-wired to live in the age of technology. As far as are bodies are concerned, we might as well still be living in the year 50 BC.

What will you gain from exercising?

By not exercising, we are denying ourselves of the extra good-feeling endorphins  and neurotransmitters that are released after a good workout. In fact, exercise can be as powerful as sex and drugs(or even rock and roll), when it comes to getting a feeling of euphoria. Exercise is also known to be essential to our health in many different ways. There's a reason why it is a recommend treatment for some many different mental and physical health issues. It's pretty much the body's second best natural cure next to sleep. Even if you're eating a great diet and taking high quality supplements, you still will not be anywhere near your peak health without some exercise.

So next time you're feeling a bit depressed don't just reach for the bottle of pills or a beer. Instead hit the treadmill or go for a bike ride and see if you're still down in the dumps after that. We all know that finding the motivation to exercise can certainly be difficult. However, the key is to just go out and do it without thinking about it. Once you start exercising it's easy to complete a good workout, but if you sit around and dwell on it then you likely won't end up doing it at all.
