Reduces feelings of anxiety and depression
Exercise is a powerful depression fighter for several reasons. Most importantly, it promotes all kinds
of changes in the brain, including neural growth, reduced inflammation, and new
activity patterns that promote feelings of calm and well-being. It also
releases endorphins, powerful chemicals in your brain that energize your
spirits and make you feel good. Finally, exercise can also serve as a
distraction, allowing you to find some quiet time to break out of the cycle of

reduces many major mortality risk factors including arterial hypertension,
diabetes mellitus type two, dyslipidemia, coronary heart disease, stroke, and
cancer. All-cause mortality is decreased by about 30% to 35% in physically
active as compared to inactive subjects. The purpose of this paper was to
synthesize the literature on life expectancy in relation to physical activity.
A systematic PubMed search on life expectancy in physically active and inactive
individuals was performed. In addition, articles comparing life expectancy of
athletes compared to that of body were reviewed. Results of 13 studies
describing eight different cohorts suggest that regular physical activity is
associated with an increase of life expectancy by 0.4 to 6.9 years. Eleven
studies included confounding risk factors for mortality and revealed an
increase in life expectancy by 0.4 to 4.2 years with regular physical activity.
Eleven case control studies on life expectancy in former athletes revealed
consistently greater life expectancy in aerobic endurance athletes but
inconsistent results for other athletes. None of these studies considered
confounding risk factors for mortality. In conclusion, while regular physical
activity increases life expectancy, it remains unclear if high-intensity sports
activities further increase life expectancy.
