It is no secret that exercise is good for both your physical and mental health.
Research has shown that regular exercise boosts your mood, alleviates anxiety, and improves the quality of your sleep.
But these are not the only benefits of regular workouts.
Exercising daily also makes you more resilient, patient, and better at solving problems.
Exercise Builds Resilience
Pushing your body past its point of comfort reinforces the idea that progress requires working past difficult moments. This is a simple fact – life is hard and worthwhile things are difficult.
Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable when you exercise will help you work through difficult situations in your life.
When you reach a point in your workout that seems too difficult to pass, you have a choice. Pushing past that point of discomfort builds your resilience in other areas of your life to. By practicing doing difficult things, you will grow your ability to withstand the pressure from life’s many challenges.
Exercise Enhances Learning Skills
When you think of your workouts as a positive habit, it tends to create a positive feedback loop in your brain. It enhances the synaptic plasticity of your brain and helps it to become more adaptable over time. This leads to better retention and processing of new information.
When you derive personal satisfaction from exercising, your brain will connect the positive feelings with the grueling workouts and give you the boost you need at the end of a tough routine or in the final seconds of a sprint. Over time, the reward system is established and your brain starts to crave the feelings of reward from achieving your workout goals.
The key is to repeat these workout routines regularly. As always, build habits to ensure you continue to improve your mental and physical health through regular exercise routines.
