How To Lose Weight | You are busy and you are stressed out. Well, you are not alone. 

These are two of the most common reasons people give for not exercising consistently. Ironically, these are the two exact reasons you should be exercising and moving your body! 

Moving your body releases endorphins which help you feel great, relaxes your mind (which reduces stress), and burns calories to keep you looking great. 

The Importance of Exercise and Weight Loss

Your body is meant to move. Long hours commuting in your car or sitting at a desk can place a lot of stress on your musculoskeletal system, which can lead to degeneration. 

If your spine and core muscles are weak and unstable, then you are more likely to suffer an injury.  That injury can then cause a downward spiral that impacts your relationship with food, sleep, and exercise. By taking a proactive approach to your exercise routine is crucial to living your best life. 

How To Lose Weight: Move Your Body

Schedule time every day to exercise. Don’t get discouraged if you feel like you aren’t doing enough. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day! 

Even 15 minutes of walking during your afternoon break can provide you with the health benefits you are looking for. Burning an extra hundred calories per day (which could be accomplished with 10 minutes of walking) adds up to thousands of calories each month. Continue that trend, and you will notice inches falling off your waistline before you know it! So here are a few takeaways:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight can decrease the risk factors for cardiovascular and heart disease.
  • Even 15 minutes of light exercise can make a difference in your overall health.
  • Exercise can help you feel good both physically and mentally.
