As many students approach term time at College or University we thought we would look at whether study should go hand-in-hand with exercise….
There are many reasons to go to the gym, and with busy study schedules, it is easy to understand why some students do not. But here are the top 5 reasons to join the gym when you are studying.
- Stress Reduction
Possibly the most important benefit for students when they are working hard on their studies. If you have had a hard day then popping into the gym for a workout is the perfect way to release any tension. The compounded effect of having your mind taken off deadlines and work with the social elements of the gym are the perfect way to keep focused.
- Mood Boost
Exercise is proven to improve your mood. When you exercise your brain releases endorphins that helps to improve your mood. That said it makes sense that if you gym BEFORE class you will have a better outlook and be more focused on your studies. Early morning workout anyone?
- Stay on Track
For a long time students have carried the ethos that to unwind they watch TV or go out on the tiles!! By going to the gym you are putting a different element to your day, one that will energise you and help you burn fat so when you do go on that night out you will feel great!!
43.2% of Male students and 58% of Female students are classed as obese following their exit from education. Say “students” and “food” and you straight away think of Pot Noodles and fast, easy food. It can be hard to stay on track with a good diet. By working out we quickly learn what is good fuel for your bodies, we become in tune with them. The result is an overall healthier you….
Studies by Centre for Disease Control CDC show that if you are fit and healthy you are far more likely to attend your place of education. If you want to give yourself the best chance of achieving in Further or Higher Education you are best off being fit.
