Reason number 1 to workout is STRESS Reduction! According to a study by American Physiological Association Preliminary evidence suggests that physically active people have lower rates of anxiety and depression than sedentary people. And less stress means less cortisol which is that nasty little hormone our body releases when stressed that causes our body to cling on to weight, especially around the middle! Think back to the last workout you just actually enjoyed… You weren’t worrying about weight loss, you just enjoyed the experience! You felt amazing and better right? Exercise helps our bodies work out the stress in a healthy way! Leaving us feeling lighter and better because of it. Total Win!!
