Exercise in all forms is good for our body. But aerobic exercise gives additional psychological benefits along with the physical benefits. Aerobic exercise involves heavy movement of your body parts which your heart pumping faster and increases your oxygen intake. Running, cycling, fast walking, circuit training, skiing, rollerblading and dynamic yoga are some fine examples of aerobic exercise. Apart from the physical benefits like weight loss, better skin and muscle tone; aerobic exercise also gives psychological benefits. Now let’s see what are the psychological benefits and how this form of exercise will be helpful for them. Mood enhancer Regular aerobic exercise helps to reduce stress, enhance the immune system and even help to postpone the aging process. Apart from exercise, the hormones are also triggered by deep-breathing, meditation, eating spicy food and deep laughter. Stress reducer Aerobic exercise is a great way to stay positive. When you are stressed, it is important to get enough sleep. Exercisers actually go to sleep faster, are more refreshed and have sharper memories. Exercise increases the blood flow to the brain, bringing extra sugar and oxygen, which can help when concentrating. And once again, the little endorphins can make you happier. Helpful for Anxiety and Depression Aerobic exercise is helpful to reduce the depression level of patients suffering from anxiety problems. Mostly it offers a distraction from your regular worriness. For an hour or so each day, you can put yourself in a position where you are too busy worrying about the prospect of having to run another two miles before you can stop.
