We all know that regular physical activity, is a part of living a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Exercise stimulates blood flow, which encourages healthy cell function and the removal of toxins from the body, while releasing endorphins, to help relieve stress and bring on positive energy. It’s no surprise that when we push ourselves to reach new heights physically, our mental health thanks us. After a good sweat, our emotional state is lifted, we have more energy to get through the day and there is a sense of proud achievement, that we have successfully pushed our body outside of its comfort zone, physically.
I’m a big believer that regular exercise helps bring out a true skin glow. Regular clearing of inner toxins and the stimulation of blood flow, can only benefit a skin that is sluggish and lacklustre.
Well – studies now show that there is another positive benefit from regular exercise – The slowing down of ageing. According to researchers, older adults who exercised for most of their lives, showed signs of slowed down ageing. Researchers at the University of Birmingham and King’s college in London, have found that staying active and fit, keeps the body young and healthy, with lower cholesterol levels and a better immune system.
