Draping on your sofa,with a cola can in one hand, and a delectable packet of potato chips in the other, fixating on the alluring tv screen for hours…
This kind of playful self-indulgence sure seems enticing and gleeful at the first thought, but subsequently only paces you towards pounding up a few extra kilos and growing a potbelly. Sadly,later when you try to squeeze yourself in that dazzling party apparel but can only scream with grimace, it suddenly dawns upon you that you are missing out on a very significant aspect of your life. A healthy body and lifestyle.
The very thought of never being able to glamorously fit inside your chic dresses again, starts giving you a nightmare. So shedding that undesired flab, which is belittling your confidence and wrecking havoc on your social life ,should become your prime motto rightaway (inevitably,after that intimidating thought that soon you might loose appeal and never be able to sport a svelte look again!creeps!).
You are left with no choice but to hit the gym for a regular workout.You might have never planned on going down that road before,but it seems the sole floating beacon of hope amidst such tough tides. Hence, loosen your purse strings a little,stack up on the gym clothes and gear up for a daily rigorous regime.
Here’s why you would have not made an incorrect decision.
- Survived a dreary day? Feeling low and frazzled? Take a quick jog to the gym and work up a sweat.You will end up feeling quite better about your day .This is so because a study has revealed that exercise helps the release of more norepinephrine in the body,a chemical believed to be effective in moderating the brain’s response to mental stress and anxiety.Thus,a good work out comes to your rescue when you are all worked up and have lost your marbles! Not only does it alleviate your mental stress levels but also helps the brain to deal with the existing tension that is stifling your life. Two birds with one stone !
- Do you loathe your body for not exuding a magnetic appeal? Do you cringe everytime you are talking to someone new,because underneath all that gabble,you are actually fretting over how fat you are looking today !Chances are that exercise will increment your self esteem and gently uplift your self-image in your own eyes.So what are you waiting for? Shove that drowsy blanket away, pull up your gym boots and hit the treadmill.The way you will feel about yourself when you walk out,will never let you be work-shy again.
- Is your daily regime grilling you?Are you often bored or driven up the wall by your monotonous routine-work?Time to abandon the hectic grind,and make a run for the scenic beauty and bright weather,by taking your workout outside.Do this and here’s what you score!
A peaceful hour away from the mess,solely dedicated towards upheavel of your physical fitness and sprucing up a perfect body contour.A complacent hour to give a free flow to your thoughts and make your imagination run wild.
More so often,you might end up solving some grim issues of your life,with their more vivid understanding;now that your blood circulation increases and your brain cells get a power-boost! Viola! 😀
4.Gorging on five handfuls of almonds daily is no longer a more reliable way to a sharper memory than an hour of daily-workout, which fortuately, entails production of more cells in hippocampus,responsible for sharper memory and faster earning.Hence,next time,when going for a sweaty break,don’t have an ickle of doubt in your mind,about returning an Einstein. 😉
5. Forever been thinking that exercise can only resort to burn a few calories?The bad news is you might have been living under a rock. Fortunately,the good one is not far behind, and is so much bigger, to eclipse the bad one wholly. 😛 Okay!The fact is that research has found out that exercise can help recover from addiction.It means that the alcohol and drug addicts(and food and sex and plethora of other kinds!)have now a chance to turn over a new leaf in their lives,by shedding away their subsidiary adherence to the addiction.
Even as meagre as 20 minutes of workout,can prove effective in taking their mind off the temptations and they won’t feel the need to scratch their old itch, by acting upon their whim,and yielding to their addiction.
6.Has your boss been yelling at you,of late,that you have lost your lustre and your creative skills are slowly pining away?Have your peers been edging you out on every new idea and project that is pitched-in? No need to lose spirit! Just hit the trails for a long jog,or work your dumbbells at the gym, for a huge burst of energy as well as creativity!
Exercise refreshes not only your body but your mind too,and that might just help you to bin that “looser”tag at your workplace and bring up seamless bouts of unbridled creative thoughts which can,for sure, trail you towards a shinier future.
So,as it seems there are many upsides to it,carve out a stern schedule and regularise your presence in the gym. Stop being lazybones and instead give a healthy kickstart to your day,with a healthy exercise.
Yes,it is hard to stick to the routine with an unflagging energy and spirit everyday,but once you are in,you will not be able to go about your day without doing it!! You will feel more comfortable in the pain cave,instead! And,all that becomes possible by just keeping one thought in mind:
It’s not about sculpting a size-zero figure or six-pack abs,it is about just going for a better one! 🙂
