Love is the theme this week. I wanted to talk about the most important love…..self love and how exercise can improve that.
Self-esteem is a critical component of any program aimed at self-improvement. A close relationship has been documented between low self-esteem and such problems as violence, alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders, school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, suicide, and low academic achievement.
Exercise has numerous health and fitness benefits. Regular sessions can lower your risk of disease and improve your quality of life. Daily activities become easier to perform because you are stronger and have more endurance. Your body weight is positively affected as well as your percentage of body fat. However, your mental health can also be impacted by exercise. People that exercise often have higher levels of self-esteem and body image than their less active counterparts, according to Athletic Insight, the Online Journal of Sport Psychology.
In my experience, it’s in the working hard and achievement of goals that increases self worth. Think about it, exercising and being disciplined about improving your life makes you focus on no one but you. Therefore, the value increases based on the emphasis you put on that improvement. This is the reason I focus on progress and continually challenging yourself. Once your routine becomes repetitive, your reaching new milestones decrease. Whatever you truely LOVE, you will protect. Whatever you truely CARE about,you will show it. Whatever you truely find important, you will MAKE TIME for…………….
LOVE YOURSELF BY CARING FOR AND MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF
