that there are also invisible benefits of exercise –
In addition to the obvious physical benefits of exercise, there are many others you can’t see—benefits that are “invisible” These include improved health, decreased PMS symptoms, better sexual health, healthier body image, improved memory, and even slower aging—the list goes on and on.
But the most successful exercisers do it for the mental benefits. The mental benefits are often instantaneous. Exercise is THE most effective brain exercise, bar none. Mood enhancement, decreased anxiety and stress, and better memory are all scientifically proven benefits of exercise.
Exercise also boosts endorphins, improves self-confidence, and has even been found to inspire creativity.

Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, is quoted as saying “Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning.

Remind yourself that it’s okay not to be perfect – just do the best you can.
