Importance of Exercise in Student Life
Everyone knows they should exercise to be healthy. But it’s also gonna make you a better student. lET’S SEE Importance of Exercise in Student Life. Stay tuned to find out how.
What’s going on guys! This is Sushant Raj Rimal from bihaanipost.com. We all know that exercise is important and something we should incorporate regularly into our lives because of the multitude of benefits. From cardiovascular health to bone health, decreasing the risk of diabetes, etc., there are a great number of health benefits. But using health benefits as a motivator is unfortunately not a very compelling reason to go to the gym. It has been shown that short term benefits, such as feeling better during or immediately after a workout. Are a stronger incentive to get people working out.
Additionally, challenging yourself in a physical manner through regular exercise makes you a better person all around. And carries through all aspects of your life, including your studies.
Here is the key point: exercise forces you to learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I love that because it’s so powerful. This applies to any sport or athletic or athletic endeavor that requires regular training. As many top athletes have said, suffering in competitive athletics is inevitable. But being able to embrace uncomfortable situations is paramount to success. And not just in exercise, but in other aspects of your life.
Pratical of Exercise
Public speaking used to be one of my biggest fears and everyone absolutely hated it. Any time that I had to go up and speak in front of an audience. But by learning to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and by getting outside of my comfort zone. I was able to address this weakness and even learned to actually enjoy public speaking.
Another example: I have learned that when I feel the burn during exercise or pain or discomfort, instead of running away from it. And trying to escape it, I practice mindfulness. I look at it curiously, almost from a third-person perspective intrigued by what I’m feeling. Rather than letting it control my thoughts. You can see this happen in action by doing something as simple as planks.
So I’m gonna challenge you to try doing a regular plank and time yourself. Now, do it again but this time don’t let the burn consume you and instead watch it curiously, almost from a third-person perspective. See how much longer you can go.
How does exercise help students?
So how does this help you as a student? Research shows that regular aerobic exercise enhances cognitive functions particularly executive functions. Here’s the study from the International Journal of Sports Medicine, link to the article is in the description below.
Another study published in 2006 in the Journal of health psychology showed that. Participants who went from not exercising at all to even a modest program of two or three visits per week demonstrated decreased stress, smoking, alcohol, and caffeine consumption. Their spending and study habits improved and were overall able to improve their regulatory habits; meaning, their ability to carry forward even when their body and mind are begging them to stop.
Enhance their ability to stay calm in the face of difficulties. This is closely tied to discipline which you guys already know I’m a huge proponent of. Discipline and self-regulatory behavior allow you to achieve something that you set up to do. At a prior moment in time, even when you don’t want to do it at a later time.
Discipline is a muscle requiring regular exercise
And like I’ve said before, discipline is a muscle requiring regular exercise. If you practice discipline and going to the gym regularly and eating healthier. You’ll find it much easier to follow a disciplined study routine. That alone will make a significant difference in your grades. Meaning, this change in one area of your life can bring about positive changes in many other areas.
These Keystone habits are powerful because they change our sense of self and our sense of what is possible. As many of you have probably heard, you are some of your habits. Most of what we do day in and day out are simply repeated behaviors that are habits. Changing your habits is, therefore, one of the most powerful ways to change or improve yourself.
Now, the takeaway from these studies is that you don’t have to exercise at a professional or Olympic level of intensity. As long as you’re challenging yourself, you’re gonna reap a multitude of benefits. Like I said in this article explaining in my own journey to engineering school, challenging yourself is a vital part of the process of growth and improvement. Challenging your muscles and body with increased exercise intensity and demand also provides the stimulus for muscular growth and strengthening.
Similarly, challenging yourself in other areas of your life. And getting outside of your comfort zone will help you grow in multiple different ways. If you’re finding it difficult to start a regular exercise routine. Consider the following: although it may seem counterintuitive. Studies have shown that people whose goals are weight loss and better health spend the least amount of time exercising.
Research between men and women
In this study of 335 men and women between ages 60 to 95, immediate rewards that enhanced daily life such as revitalized energy, improved mood, and decreased stress actually offered significantly more motivation.
