Hi you all!
Did you know that WHEN YOU SWEAT MORE, YOU STRESS LESS!?
According to a study presented last year at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual meeting, exercise can improve your outlook — for over 12 hours! After a study group participated in a moderate intensity workout, they reported immediate positive change in mood — so during this holiday season, don’t miss your workout to keep your spirits high.
There is a huge MENTAL ADVANTAGE too: people who exercised during their workday were 23% more productive on those days than they were when they did not exercise. A pulse-pounding workout acts like a cup of coffee (minus the jitters!). Your heartbeat picks up, and you circulation increases, you are filled with energy, and your thinking becomes clearer and sharper. A study published in Brain and Cognition found that after just 30 minutes of a moderate intensity workout, subjects completed a cognitive test faster than they did before exercising…and just as accurately!
So this week, be sure to get in your “PRE-PIG-OUT WORKOUTS” and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
