We all tend to crave new information on superfoods, the latest products, or daily routines that will help us look and feel younger and improve the quality of our lives overall, however as technology continues to make our lifestyle easier, most of us ironically overlook the no.1 fountain of youth – Exercise. 

According to ABC Health and Wellbeing, 75% of Australians no longer meet the minimum daily recommendation for exercise, resulting in poor health and death from conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. 

Our body needs constant cleansing in order for optimal function. Exercise is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to cleanse our bodies. Whatever your age, gender, or physical ability, exercise will enrich the quality of your life in the following ways:  

  1. Get the killer figure. 

Life is better when you look and feel good. You fit the clothes you want, you feel more confident at work and studies suggest you are more likely to travel and you take part in the social activities when you have a fit body. 

  1. Reverse aging. 

Use exercise to actively increase muscle tone and skin elasticity through improved circulation, which helps flush toxins and delivers essential vitamins throughout the body. 

  1. Don’t worry, be happy.

Manage your anger; aggression, depression, or mood swings with regular exercise. Exercise helps release the two hormones endorphins into the brain to make you feel good and serotonin to assist with sleep quality and overall mood. 

  1. Enjoy a better sex life. 

Exercise has been proven to not only improve your mood and energy level but also increase your social confidence and self-esteem which is a prerequisite for intimacy. If you want to be a better lover, be a better exerciser. 

The World Health Organisation recommends 3-4 hours of moderate exercise every week, or about 30 minutes per day to experience the benefits listed above. In real terms that equates to 1% of your week. To put that in perspective, the average Australian spends more than 7 times that amount each week watching television, surfing the net, or on social media.
