We know not everyone loves cardio, but there are many benefits for your brain, heart, muscles, lungs and those pesky fat cells that may just change your mind.
Graydon Gunthardt's insight:

Benefits and benefits galore! Cardio exercise benefits areas all around the body, not just the heart and lungs. There are even more benefits for the brain than discussed in my previous post. Cardio exercise can decrease one's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by 45%. I find this very important because my Grandfather dealed with Alzheimer's in the later years of his life. Cardio exercise, like all exercise, can help build muscle, too. Building muscle isn't really too important to me, but it's a nice benefit to have! Cardio exercise can also help my heart by lowering my resting heart rate, making the wok my heart has to do less strenuous. Cardio exercise has an impressive range of benifits, affacting all parts of the human body!

Graydon Gunthardt's insight:

There are many appealing benefits to cardio exercise! I sometimes go for runs usually just to exercise for the sake of exercisisng; it also is a good way to clear my mind, but according to this articles, there are even more important benefits to cardio exercise! In my opinion, the benefits I found most valuable were the loss of fat and the reduction of cravings, because

i struggled with obesity in my childhood up to my mid-teens. I was interested to see that arobic exercise can reduce nicotine cravings in smokers, and that cardio exercise can make smoking less appealing in someone's mind. I find that as I get older I will value the benefits of keeping my eyesight and preventing breast cancer. Breast Cancer, along with other cancers, has affected multiple people around me in my life, and even though I am a male I am still at risk. I knew cardio exercise was important, but I never knew the wide range of benefits it has!

Graydon Gunthardt's insight:

Cardio exercise does not only improve your physicla health; it can improve your mental health, too! I was very surprised to see that studies have shown that cardio exercise can "boost" the brain by making it easier for the brain to multi-task for extended periods of time and stay committed to plans. I guess this makes sense, because many people say that running is half physical activity and half mental activity. I finally know what these people mean; cardio exercise does actually exercise the brain through its power to focus!
