Why Exercise is Important for My Body

Why Exercise is Important for My Body

Let’s face it, not a lot of people enjoy working out. I don’t fully enjoy it either. It’s one of those things where people are either “Oh yeah I love working out! I run up 15 mountains a day!” or “Working out? HAHAHA, wait your serious? Yeah no I hate it with every fiber in my being.” One of the most annoying things to go through is when you tell someone you work out and they immediately assume 1 outta 2 things. 1. You’re now a crazy nut who enjoys running across states. Or 2. You’re making it up to seem like you didn’t eat entire pizza by yourself. Now you should be thinking “Those are really stupid.” And you’re right. Don’t get me wrong, there’s probably people who do those things, but it’s not fair to immediately assume these things.

I personally don’t fully enjoy working out, BUT I do like what it does for my body. After working out for a while, I’ve noticed changes that I wouldn’t have if I just continued to lay in bed and play Animal Crossing. I’ve noticed how much it helps with my balance, strength, pain tolerance and many more things. One thing I noticed in particular, which has also been my favorite thing is that I have more energy. I can actually wake up in the morning and not immediately feel tired or exhausted. I’ve been able to hang out at a friend’s house and not want to collapse. I can go to Disneyland and not be sad that I’m already exhausted from walking from our car to Space Mountain.

Yeah, losing weight and being able to carry a case of water into the house is nice, but it’s genuinely nice to be able to do so many things and not have my body screaming at me. Yeah, actually working out may not be fun, but you should think about how it will affect your body and how it can improve your life BEFORE you think about how “unfun” it can be. Also, please don’t push yourself when working out. Make sure you find something that works for you, and heck even if you only do yoga for 5 minutes that’s great because you’re at least doing something to improve your body and life.
