Enjoy a better quality of life

Being physically active leads to improvements in all aspects of life in an often indirect, sometimes, unrecognised way.

Regular exercise has the following benefits:

  • Quality time with family and friends: exercise and keeping fit is an activity which can be carried out with other people. Often keeping fit is a social activity in itself. It enables you to spend time with friends, exchange ideas, off load personal issues and enjoy laughter, which of course is beneficial to health in itself. It allows parents to spend time with their children, for example, bike riding together, playing football in the park. Although these are quite unstructured activities, they exude to personal fitness whilst strengthening bonds with family and friends in the process.
  • Be more relaxed at home: exercise helps to reduce muscle tension. Exercise has become a way to reduce stress and muscle tension, this in turns allows for important ‘relaxation or down’ time at home to be enjoyable. By making the most to relax, people then can become revitalised and recharged before facing the next day or week ahead. Being relaxed at home may mean spending more quality time with family too – a very important issue.
  • Enjoy a better quality of sleep: exercised people generally have a better quality of sleep, sleeping deeper and sounder than others, as a result they have less desire to nap during the day and feel more refreshed in the morning. Regular exercise starts to improve sleep quality after 8 weeks.
  • Perform better at work – improves productivity: regular exercise has been known to make people generally more motivated and more confident in all aspects of life including their employment. In the workplace people are likely to feel more responsive and energetic. Employers experience increased staff morale, reduced absenteeism, improved creativity and productivity and more efficient decision making.
  • Beats the blues: The positive effects of exercise on conditions such as anxiety and depression have been studied since the 1980s. It started with the true story of the man who was suicidal and tried to induce a fatal heart attack by running as fast as he could for as long as physically possible. He attempted suicide in this manner several times and found, not only did he not have a heart attack; he actually started to feel better. This is caused by the release of endorphins in the brain – this creates a short-term feeling elation. Other research identifies serotonin and norepinephrine – also elevated by exercise – act as mechanisms for improved mood.


From this you can see the reasons for achieving and maintaining personal fitness are varied and all extremely important – physically fit people lead generally longer and happier lives.
