1. Exercise controls weight
Regular trips to the gym are great, but don't worry if you can't find a large chunk of time to exercise every day. To reap the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your household chores. Consistency is key.
3. Exercise improves mood
You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
