We all understand exercising is a good idea — that’s why you feel so guilty for skipping it. What you may not know, however, is exactly why it is so good for you. A strong fitness routine can do so much more than help you sustain a skinny body. It also can enhance your mood, decrease stress levels, and lower your risk for other health concerns later in life.
