To the Editor:

Exercise is an important contributor to keeping the body healthy. Some people have exer-

cise regimens that they adhere to to make sure they are staying fit and in good health, and some

people never workout whatsoever. There are no negative results from working out properly and

according to your current fitness state, but there are many many positive results. I’m going to in-

form you on a few health benefits of exercising.

According to mayoclinic.org, exercise combats many health conditions and diseases. Ac-

tivity boosts the bodies HDL’s (high density lipoproteins) or “good” cholesterol and decreases

unhealthy triglycerides. This ensures that your blood is flowing smoothly and decreases the risk

of cardiovascular disease. Exercising regularly helps prevent many health issues such as stroke,

metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and falls.

Exercise is proven to help the health of the brain and memory. Increasing your heart rate

promotes the flow of oxygen and blood to the brain, which improves overall function and think-

ing skills. Exercise has been shown to cause the hippocampus, a part of the brain that’s vital for

memory and learning, to grow in size. This serves to increase mental function in older adults.

Exercise also prevents the changes in the brain from occurring that can cause Alzheimers disease

and schizophrenia. (healthline.com)

I believe that exercise is something that should be a priority in everybody’s life. Regular

exercise ensures that a person is staying fit, active, and most importantly, healthy. It pushes your

mental toughness to be willing to put in the work even when you don’t want to, and it pushes the

bodies limits to develop into a better version of itself. Exercise is good for the mind, body, and

soul, and there is not a single downside about it.
