Exercise // John 5:17

I. Work out!

A. Benefits of regular exercise

1. Boost happiness levels

  • It’s not a coincidence that you feel better after a good workout: It’s science. A Penn State University study found that people who exercised, whether it was a mild, moderate or vigorous workout, had more pleasant feelings than those who didn’t. Endorphins.

2. Reduce your risk of heart problems naturally

  • A meta-review of a variety of studies and trials conducted by researchers in 2013 ­— encompassing 305 trials with more than 339,000 participants — found that no statistically detectable differences existed between those who exercised and those who were given medications in the prevention of coronary heart disease and prediabetes.
