Recent research done in the USA on what would be a preferred choice to have in their life more: sport or money, found out that nowadays people are very aware that sport is the better choice or at least there’s a need to be a balance between career and sport.
- physical and mental health relation is obvious and confirmed by the scientists
- sport relieves stress, anxiety, depression, helps to stabilize the mood swings
- any type of physical activity helps the brain to work better and even improve your logical thinking
What this means is that we, the human beings, slightly, but surely are heading back to our roots – the forests and the jungle as we along with the massive technology advancement we strongly need to move our bodies, to burn fat, to improve the blood circulation in our vessels, to get energy, to feel healthy…
I am sure everyone has felt this energy raise and mood improvement, some sense of accomplishment after spending some time at the gym or doing a general physical activity!
Regardless of whether you achieve your goals or not, the feeling of satisfaction and stress relief cannot be replaced or compared with anything.
Judging by myself – sometimes I push myself hard to hit the road to the gym, apparently if in a mood swing or feel bad or depressed … and what I feel after … a new person is just getting out of me, screaming from happiness.
The correlation between physical and mental health is quite powerful and obvious
It is already an old belief that people attend sports activities to get fit, to lose weight, to become muscular. Actually with the huge amount of sports awareness in developed countries nowadays everyone should be active whether is with a particular sport or physical activity!
As all in life sports activities should be also set in certain boundaries though
The scientists found out that the amount of hours which makes people really happy is between 3 and 6 hours per week, for a daily timing between half and hour. So do not push these healthy boundaries as that could have a reversed effect.
A lot of happy people find on social sports too, where they meet others and compete with each other
The Full Benefits of Exercising and its’ awareness seems to take over the misconception of using sport as a fit shape method as it is ways more than just this.
So next time when we second-guess our choices should we leave earlier to hit the gym or to stay in bed, let’s first think what would make us happier. And work afterward.
