When you’re dealing with a health concern, exercising is probably the last thing you want to do, especially if you’re having issues with your joints or energy levels. However, it’s exactly when you need to make it a priority.
When you don’t feel well, it can be exceptionally hard to make yourself go to the gym or even just get out of the house and walk. However, you should do whatever it takes to make the effort on a regular basis. Exercise has been shown to improve energy levels and boost your immune system. How does exercise help boost your energy levels?
There are a few ways that exercise affects the body and can improve your overall energy levels. It may seem contrary to logical arguments, because when you exercise you come away tired from the exertion. However, if you look at where your energy comes from, it all starts to make sense. Food is fuel. You consume healthy foods in order to fuel your body. But fuel isn’t useful if you have no engines in order to process the fuel. On the cellular level, mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells. Mitochondria turn food into useable energy for the body. If you don’t exercise regularly, your body is going to have a limited number of mitochondria or “power plants.” When you start to incorporate low to moderate exercise into your daily routine, your body triggers the mechanism that helps create more mitochondria in your cells in order to meet the new, increased daily power needs.
In addition to jumpstarting your body’s ability to produce enough usable energy for your needs, exercise also helps to improve your body’s circulation. If you’ve ever dealt with cold fingers and toes, you know how frustrating it can be to not get warm. Movement can improve your circulation so that blood is properly supplied to all reaches of the body. Proper circulation also ensures all parts of the body are supplied with adequate amounts of oxygen that you may not get if you’re not moving enough throughout the day.
As we briefly mentioned above, the entire energy chain starts with the fuel that you provide your body. You need to make sure that you’re providing your body with a variety of foods so you get a variety of nutrients that can be converted into energy. If you’re not getting the right nutrients for your needs, you’re probably going to feel fatigued on a regular basis. Incorporating a nutrition plan with your exercise plan is key in providing yourself with a beneficial lifestyle change to boost your energy.
According to a study performed at the University of Georgia in 2008, researchers took a relatively small sample size and evaluated how much energy each individual had. Every single person who then added low-intensity exercise into their routine felt an energy increase of 20 percent while decreasing overall fatigue by a whopping 65 percent. It’s important when you have fatigue and a lack of energy to explore a variety of options available to you. While getting more exercise may help, it might not be the magic cure-all you’ve been looking for. The right mix of changes and factors can go a long way towards figuring out what combination is going to work best for you.
