We all have our own reasons for working out. And while all reasons have merit (and there is nothing wrong with wanting to feel good about the reflection you see in the mirror), some reasons for hitting the gym are definitely better and more motivating than others. In fact, the goals you set and the reasons why you work out help set the tone for your entire lifestyle and can even play a role in your long-term health and success. Of course, it is recommended that you choose empowering and uplifting reasons to lose weight and work out.
Here are few reasons to exercise……daily :
- For Better Sleep – We’re just like toddlers and puppies, the more we move, the better we sleep!
- To Get Stronger – Building strength helps you keep you with the kids, carry the groceries, and lift a carry on into the overhead compartment like a boss.
- To Challenge You Brain – Learning a dance or trying a new sport is as mentally stimulating as a cross word puzzle.
