Exercising on a regular basis will also reduce
the risk of prostate cancer for men, breast and
uterine cancer for women, and much more.  All of
this is scientifically proven, which is why you

4.  Enhance your state of mind
Everyone knows from the many scientific studies
that regular exercising will lead to an increased
release of endorphins in the body.  These chemicals
will fight depression and make you feel happy.  The
body releases these endorphins only 12 minutes
into the workout.

There is another chemical known as serotonin that
is increased during and after a workout.  The
increased levels of serotonin in the central nervous
system is associated with feelings of well being
and decreased mental depression. The chemical
can also help you sleep better at night.

which can help you be more productive at home and
at work.  Exercising can help give your new goals
a sense of purpose and give you something to focus
on and aim for.  This can help you increase your
persistence and prevent you from going off track
while you aim for your goal.

7.  Social capabilities
After a workout on a regular basis you can boost
your self esteem.  This can help you look better
and you'll be more comfortable as well.  Exercise
