Let’s Get Physical
September is National Childhood Obesity Month. Childhood obesity can lead to the development of serious health complications later in life as well as an increased mortality rate. One way to fight obesity is with physical activity.
We know exercise is good for us, but do we know just how good? From our muscles to our mind, the benefits are bountiful. Exercising causes our body to release endorphins, chemical messengers in our bodies that cause feelings of euphoria and decreased pain. Exercise can increase our self-confidence, as well as increase relaxation which can lead to deeper sleep.
