Help With Weight Loss: Physical inactivity is a major factor in weight gain and obesity. [1] Exercise is a good physical activity and can help in weight loss. Regular exercise increases metabolic rate and the body burn more calories, as a result, the excess energy is utilized that would otherwise store in the form of fat. Numerous studies have shown aerobic exercise to maximize fat loss and muscle mass maintenance. [2]

Improves Sleep Quality: Exercise (not right before bedtime though) can improve sleep as energy consumed during exercise stimulates recuperative processes during sleep. A study has claimed that 150 minutes of physical exercise during a week can provide up to 65% of improvement in sleep. [3]

Prevents Diseases: Regular exercise has shown the potential to improve insulin sensitivity, heart health, and hypertension. Exercise helps with belly fat loss, which has been identified as a risk factor for type-2 diabetes [4] and numerous other serious health problems.

Brain Health: Exercise promotes the blood flow to all organs of the body and stimulates the production of hormones that enhance the growth of brain cells. Physical activity has been identified to decrease brain degeneration in brain diseases. [5]

Chronic Pain Relief: Exercise can help alleviate chronic pain. Several studies have found exercise to reduce chronic pain in patients and improve pain tolerance. Exercise increases the production of endorphins that reduce the perception of pain. [6]

Decrease Depression: Exercise increases the sensitivity of the brain to serotonin and norepinephrine, the hormones that alleviate depression. A study that involved 24 women who were suffering from depression found that exercise decreased their feeling of depression. [7]
