Exercise is how we exert the muscles of the body to develop and maintain physical fitness. The activities to exert the body may include running, jumping, dancing, singing, working, climbing, etc. When we perform these activities, each affected body muscle in the arms, stomach, thigh, leg, back, shoulder, and other parts of the body responds to the stimuli of the activities, making them relax and be in shape, ready for work.

Benefits of Exercise
1. Helps you control your weight: Along with diet, exercise plays an important role in controlling your weight and preventing obesity. To maintain weight, the calories you eat and drink must equal the energy you burn. To lose weight, you must use more calories than you eat and drink.

2. Reduces the risk of heart disease: Exercise strengthens your heart and improves your blood circulation. The increased blood flow raises the oxygen levels in your body. This helps lower the risk of heart diseases such as high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, and heart attack. Regular exercise can also lower your blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

3. Help your body manage blood sugar and insulin levels: Exercise can lower your blood sugar level and help your insulin work better. This can cut down your risk for metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. And if you already have one of those diseases, exercise can help you to manage it.

4. Improves your mental health and mood: During exercise, your body releases chemicals that can improve your mood and make you feel more relaxed. This can help you deal with stress and reduce your risk of depression.

5. Helps keep your thinking, learning, and judgment skills sharp as you age: Exercise stimulates your body to release proteins and other chemicals that improve the structure and function of your brain.
