Hello world! Exercise may not immediately come to mind when you think of things that make you all excited (and I won’t shame you if chocolate cupcakes or a new season of Game of Thrones top your list), but it’s one of the healthiest love affairs you can have. It pushes you to be a better version of yourself, gives you the confidence to tackle any obstacle, helps you de-stress and rejuvenate, and constantly reminds you that your body is ready to rock n roll!
Today, with support from Rebelli Malta who have just launched D Squared2 gymwear in store, similar to the ones I am wearing here, I’d like to highlight 5 reasons why exercising regularly makes you healthier and happier!
1. It releases happy endorphins into your brain
Dopamine, a neurotransmitter released by the brain that plays a number of roles in humans and other animals. It is necessary for feelings of pleasure and happiness. Several studies suggest that as we age, we are constantly losing our stores of dopamine, which is why we need to constantly seek out experiences that release dopamine. The best way to increase your brain’s dopamine production? Exercise. So go for walks, lift, jump, play, run — and get happy.
2. It makes you less stressed
When we exercise, we are actually subjecting ourselves to a low-level form of stress by raising our heart rate and triggering a burst of hormonal changes. When we subject yourself to the stress of exercise enough, our body eventually gets better at handling stress in general.
And less stress equals a happier, more serene life.
The next time you’re feeling down, stressed or anxious, get off the couch and get some exercise instead.
Because you’ll not only feel more confident, energized, and calm — you’ll be a healthier and happier person for life.
3. It boosts your confidence
When you don’t feel good about your body or how you look, it is quite easy to have low self-esteem. And that can have a negative effect on all areas of your life including your career, relationships together with your goals and aspirations.
However, when you exercise and see your body transform, that can quickly change. Because exercise will not only make you like how you look, it will also make you feel stronger, more independent, and more confident. There’s nothing like a boost in confidence to increase overall happiness.
4. It helps you sleep better
Staying active and exercising on a regular basis has been shown to improve sleeping problems of people with sleeping disorders. Not only that. Regular exercise significantly improves your sleep quality and can also give you that vigour that makes you want to get out of bed in the morning and do stuff. It sounds like happy news!
5. It energises you
Undoubtedly working out is the last thing in the world you want to do sometimes. But ladies and gents, no matter how exhausted you are from a long day at work, taking care of your family or recovering from a busy weekend, do your best to gather up all the willpower you have and still work out, because more likely than not, you’ll feel more energised after your workout than you did before it.
So my friends, the next time you force yourself to get off the couch and get into workout mode, you will most likely feel more energised throughout the rest of the day. And more energy equals happier moments! Of course good looking gymwear like these by DSquared2 set from Rebelli will make you all the more happy!!
About D Squared2
Dean and Dan Caten, twin brothers from Willowdale in Toronto, started their path in fashion at the Parson’s School of Design in New York City in 1984. Eight years later, the Canadian duo moved to Italy with their sights set on creating their brand. After collaborating with some of Italy’s most celebrated fashion houses, in 1995 the designers presented their first men’s collection under the label Dsquared2. The presentation marked the debut of Dsquared2’s runway show extravaganzas, which captured the attention of journalists and buyers from around the world.
Dsquared2’s philosophy is an edgy mix of Canadian iconography, refined Italian tailoring and playful sensuality. The collections are a seamless melding of contrasts: sporty and glamorous, laidback and extravagant, masculine and feminine, creating a distinctive concept of alternative luxury. Recently the Dsquared2 collections have gained a sophisticated edge while maintaining the sexiness embedded in the brand’s DNA. Dean and Dan Caten divide their lives between Milan and London, and the Dsquared2 collections are produced in Italy, giving rise to the brand’s motto of “Born in Canada, Living in London, Made in Italy”.
