Exercise good for health

In our school every day we do some exercise and engage ourselves in activities like dancing and playing. Our games teacher always emphasizes on the benefits of exercise for our body as well as our mind.He says regular exercise make our muscles work and help our body to burn calories.

Now, today I am going to tell you about the benefits of exercises which I have learned from my games teacher. My father also tells me about the advantages of exercising regularly. He also follows it himself and encourages me to exercise regularly.

1.  It Makes Us Feel Happy:

Exercises uplift our mood by decreasing anxiety, depression and stress. It creates positivity in our mind and lowers the feeling of pain. Those people who suffer from anxiety, regular exercise has been shown to reduce their symptoms. Exercise provide a powerful impact on our mood and even doing it for a short period of time makes a difference. So we should exercise regularly to boost our mood and fight stress and anxiety.

2. Reduces Obesity:

When we are not engaged in any activity our body becomes obese as it gains weight. Exercises quicken our metabolism and help in burning more calorie.Thus it initiates weight loss and reduces obesity. We should also eat healthy foods to remain fit and fine.

3. Beneficial for Our Bones and Muscles:

Exercise helps to make our muscles and bones strong. It makes us agile and reduces the chances of falling down. Engaging regularly in various exercises and activities help to retain our strength even when we grow old with age.

4. Maintains Our Skin:
To keep our skin healthy we should be engaged in moderate exercise regularly.It increases the blood flow to the body and protects our cells. It improves the elasticity of the skin, hence our skin looks firm and radiant.

5. Increases Brain Function and Boosts Memory:

Our brain function is improved by doing regular exercises.It also boosts our thinking skills and memory. It reduces the chances of diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia. By promoting the flow of blood to the brain, exercise helps in maintaining brain function.

6. Helps Us to Sleep Better:

Exercising regularly induces a good sleep and offers better relaxation. It makes us feel more energetic during the daytime. But it is not good to exercise before going to bed as it can affect our sleep making us feel too energized.

Thus exercises are very much beneficial for our health. I also go for swimming classes on the weekends. It gives me lots of fun as well as helps me to be healthy. Dancing is another physical activity which I love to do. I love to go for dancing and swimming as I get to make many friends there too. Mommy always tells me that before starting any new exercise, we should always visit the doctor for a check-up and take his advice to know that we are fit to do the exercises.

Last weekend, my aunt came to visit us. Mumma and Dada were very excited to have her with us. Mumma told me that she was a friend of both of them and she was visiting us for the first time after I was born. I too was happy and was eager to meet her. When she reached our house, she was very happy to see both Mumma and Dada. Then she came to me and hugged me tight and told me that she was so happy to see me too.

She brought many gifts for me. There were toys, dresses and a lots of story books. I loved all of them. The books were very colourful and full of lovely pictures. I told her that I love picture stories. She toldme that reading books is a very good habit. We get to know a lot of new things when we read books. I told her that I can’t read all the words, but I like to listen to stories. My Aunt told me that as I was small I would not be able to read the whole story book. First Mumma and Dada will read out the stories to me before bedtime or when we have some spare time. Then slowly with time, when I grow up I will be able to read the entire story book.

Books are fun. They take us to awhole new world. We get to learn a lot of new things; about people, food, culture and many more. We get to see new perspectives.Reading books enhances our imagination power. We get a lot of knowledge by reading books. Books also help in concentrating and improving our focus. My Aunt also told me that books are the best companions when one is alone.

Post lunch, she read out a story to me – Alice in Wonderland. This is the story of a little girl who dreams of falling down a rabbit hole and getting to explore wonderland. While listening to the story, I also started wondering, how it must have felt when Alice was exploring new places all alone. My aunt told me; when I grow up, I would also go places alone. Exploring new places, meeting new people, new food. Knowing about weather, culture and perspective.Travelling alone is fun.

Now that I am small, I go out to different places with Mumma and Dada. Mumma and Dada both love travelling. They always take me along wherever they go. They guide me through everywhere. Last month we went on a “Giant Causeway Road Trip”. It was very much fun.

My Aunt showed me all the other story books she brought for me. They were all very beautiful, full of colourful pictures and conversations. I thanked her for bringing me so many story books. My Mumma came to us and told me that she would read stories to me every day. I was very excited and happy. I thanked Mumma aswell and hugged her tight.
