Better Body Appearance
If you are a “plus size”, and you’ve chosen to change that image once and for all, we sincerely applause for the choice made.
Usually, poor body image can have many harmful implications for a woman’s psychological and physical health including increased risk for low self-esteem, depression and eating disorders.
If in any case you find yourself in this category – then, you’ve already made your move, choosing change.
As you’ll start, don’t expect that your bodily image will change over night.
It takes time and persistence.
Sometimes, you may find yourself overwhelmed by this, but note that wanting to quit – isn’t an option if you want to change.
You need to have a workout motivation as well.

There is another study that elaborates how aerobic exercises like running or swimming, boosts the size of the brain responsible for memory and learning.
Knowing all the positive “side effects” workout has, you can start monitoring yourself and see how much improvement you have over the time.
Lower Stress Levels
You are all well aware of negative effects stress has on our body, and how it can impact the quality of life.
By exercising, you trigger your “happy” hormones (endorphin, serotonin and dopamine) to jingle throughout your body and enhance the feeling of happiness.
More exercise – more happy feelings!
The reason why you don’t remember things when you’re anxious, is that stress attacks the functioning of the brain area critical to memory, and even a single round of exercise can help protect against that attack.
That is why it is recommended in case you are preparing an important presentation that requires your full concentration, to do some exercise first thing in the morning, so you can successfully do your tasks by minimizing anxiety levels.
Anxiety and stress can cause bad sleeping patterns, and here is the part where exercise can help. The long-term effect might not be seen immediately.
You’ll sleep like a baby…
When you are exhausted, the last thing on your mind is to exercise.

Maybe it sounds silly, but you’ll never know until you try.
Better Strength and Flexibility
Is strength training and stretching a part of your fitness routine?
If not, its time to incorporate them. Don’t engage only in cardio activities – try some resistance training and building muscles.
Strength training (lifting weights, body weight exercises) is good for improvement of your muscle mass and muscle strength, especially when aging.
It will also help you in:
- developing strong bones
- managing your weight
- better balance and reduced risks of fails
- managing chronic conditions (back pain, arthritis,heart disease, obesity, diabetes, depression)
- body weight (push ups, pull ups, leg squats, abdominal exercises)
- resistance tubing
- free weights
- weight machines
Before getting started
If you have a chronic condition, or if you’re older than age 40 and you haven’t been active recently, check with your doctor before beginning a strength training or aerobic fitness program.
Consider warming up with brisk walking, or another aerobic activity for 10-15 minutes, before starting a strength training, because cold muscles are more prone to injury than warm muscles are.
Monitor your body.
If a strength training exercise causes pain in any way, you should stop the exercise. Lower the weight, or try it again in a few days.
Using proper technique in strength training is crucial if you want to avoid injuries.
And if you’re new to weight training, its probably a good idea to work with a trainer or fitness specialist, so you can learn the correct techniques and avoid possible injuries.
Don’t forget about stretching either.
It improves blood circulation sending more blood to your muscles, and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Find just a few minutes per day, and see how deep stretching can make all the difference (especially if you are sitting all day long).
Make it as a part of your workout routine.
In time, when results will start coming and your bodily image will transform, looking into mirror and seeing your achievements will become an everyday habit.
Satisfaction will be written all over your face, and no one can wipe that smile away.
Do you feel more confident now?
All that sweating has paid off finally. You like what you see and how you feel, and you want that feeling to last forever.
If so, keep on going with your working routine, and motivate someone else to do the same.
It will make you feel even better!
Its not only the length of your life – but the quality of it.
If you understood what you need to do, to improve the quality of your life, for sure you’ll be there for many more years to celebrate with your friends and family.
