When you start getting active, it can be hard to believe that your body is actually going to change. However, this is true! Exercise brings with it a host of benefits that many people overlook when they’re first starting an exercise program. Here are some of the most obvious changes you’ll notice in your body as you start exercising today:

Your mood will improve.

You may feel happier and more relaxed. Studies have shown that exercise can improve your mood, making you feel more optimistic about life in general.

You’ll also find that you sleep better after exercising, which is great news for people who struggle with insomnia or over-tiredness.

Exercising can help you fall asleep faster than usual, which means fewer interruptions throughout the night—and less time spent trying to get back on track after waking up earlier than expected (or even late).

You’ll sleep better

When you exercise, your body is able to repair itself and recover from the damage that exercises causes. As you become more active, your muscles will get stronger, which means they can handle more work during workouts.

This can help you sleep better at night because the increased strength in your muscles makes it easier for them to relax and get into a relaxed state when they’re tired.

Another way exercise helps you fall asleep is by helping to release endorphins—the feel-good chemicals made by the brain—into your bloodstream and brain tissue via sweat glands in your skin or through other routes (like breathing).

These endorphins act as natural painkillers for our bodies, so when we exercise hard enough for long enough periods of time (at least 20 minutes), this helps us fall asleep faster because our brains are no longer flooded with painful signals from overused muscles!

You’ll feel less stressed.

Stress is a major contributor to many health problems, including heart disease and certain types of cancer. Exercise can help you manage stress by helping you sleep better and feel more optimistic about life in general.

You’ll be at a lower risk of certain diseases and chronic conditions.

Exercise can help reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. It also helps with other health issues such as high blood pressure and osteoporosis. A study published in The Lancet found that people who exercised regularly had a lower risk of becoming obese compared to those who did not exercise at all.

Additionally, research shows that people who work out regularly have higher levels of HDL cholesterol (good) cholesterol than those who don’t exercise at all or do so less frequently; this suggests that regular physical activity improves your overall cardiovascular health by increasing good cholesterol levels without negatively impacting rates for other types like LDL (bad) cholesterol

Your brain will become more efficient.

Exercise improves blood flow to the brain, which increases cognitive function. This is why we get so pumped up after exercising because our bodies are telling us that they need more oxygen and nutrients to keep going!

You’ll remember things better, learn faster and be less distracted by external stimuli after a good workout. Exercise can also help you concentrate on what’s important in life (and work) by increasing your concentration levels and focus abilities—which means being able to do more productive things without getting distracted by all of those other things going on around you!

Your body and mind will both benefit from starting an exercise program today.

Exercising is good for your body and mind. Here are some of the ways that exercise can help you:

It improves sleep quality. When you exercise, the amount of time it takes to fall asleep increases by about 50 percent, according to a study published in the American Journal of Health Promotion.

It reduces stress levels. People who engage in regular physical activity experience less stress than those who don’t exercise regularly, according to a study published by The Journal of Behavioral Medicine in 2012.

It helps people lose weight more easily than they would without exercising (especially if they’re trying to shed pounds). In addition, regular exercisers tend not only to have lower BMIs but also to weigh less than non-exercising individuals on average—even after accounting for body mass index (BMI).


We know that starting an exercise program can be a tough decision, especially if you’ve been inactive for a long time. But we hope this article has given you some inspiration! We’d love to hear about your own experiences with exercise—and the benefits to your body and mind—in the comments below.
