Daily exercise has many health benefits aside from potentially helping you get in shape.
Past research found that just 35 minutes of daily exercise, which adds up to four hours of exercise a week, can decrease the chances of experiencing periods of depression by nearly 20%. In addition, specific exercises like cycling, have been linked to reducing stress, which had a positive effect in the office as job satisfaction increased by 19%.
But exercise also has a big influence on preventing the development of Alzheimer’s disease. With a weekly cardio regiment, brain function can improve for those at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, especially for individuals where the disease runs through family history, according to a new study.
