Exercising is not just about shedding weight and staying in tip-top shape. The rewards of being physically active and regular exercise go beyond adding muscle tone or slimming down— exercise also makes you look and feel fantastic for your wedding.
While preparing for your wedding you have to consider each and every detail like from getting a world-class wedding dress to the arrangements at the wedding venue. You have to be very particular about every part. Looking gorgeous is of utmost importance and most probably your number one priority. So if you are not in perfect shape things might not go as expected. Here are some reasons why you should consider losing weight for your wedding.
Dozens of subtle changes slowly revamp your body and psyche in ways you never imagined.
Less Anxiety and Stress
Uncertainty, fearfulness, anxiety, and stress related to your wedding all drain your energy and vitality and dampens your mood, which tends to show on your face and in the way you carry yourself. Anxiety and stress strip down both the spring in your step and the smile from your face. However, exercise has been shown to reduce the mildest cases of anxiety and stress and can quickly lighten your mood.
Exercise is like a tranquilizer, but much better since its side effects are improved health and better fitness. Studies reveal that exercising for at least 20 minutes can offer a calm and relaxed demeanor that can last for hours.
Improvement in Posture and Flexibility
Thanks to the bone density changes and muscle loss, your posture slowly takes deteriorates as you age. However, if you counteract this with physical activity such as strength training which builds muscle health, particularly along your spine and in your core, you naturally stand taller and shed years off your posture. Exercising also makes you feel psychologically powerful, helping you to stop slouching all the time and straighten up.
Not only that, but aging also takes a toll on your joints and muscles, leaving them feeling rickety and stiff. Regular workouts, particularly flexibility and stretching routines like Pilates and Yoga should keep you bendy and loose.
Soft And Vibrant Skin
A dewy sheen on your forehead and cheeks because of all the sweat dripping off might not be the only way fitness is keeping your skin looking young for your wedding day.
Breaking a sweat also reduces inflammation throughout the body, prevents free-radical damage, and aids in regulating skin-significant hormones. During exercise, tiny arteries in your skin open up which allow more blood to reach the surface of the skin and deliver essential nutrients to help repair damage from the sun’s UV rays as well as environmental pollutants.
These nutrients can also help rev up the production of your collagen production, reducing wrinkles and loose skin. In addition to regular exercise, you can also consider body contouring to make your skin firmer and younger looking much faster.
More Restful Sleep
Plagued with sleepy eyes and dark circles?
Restful sleep is somewhat similar to the fountain of youth and regular exercise can actually help you achieve it. The research revealed that regular exercise can help you fall asleep more quickly and you are more likely to experience deep REM sleep.
Working out tires you out, but it’s more than just that. Exercise increases your body’s sensitivity to the stress hormone called cortisol that can help enhance sleep.
Sleeping well helps all your systems function optimally and leaves you looking and feeling healthy and fresh on your wedding day.
Mood Booster and Greater Self-Confidence
You might have heard that sweat-inducing workouts can actually turn on a blissful mood that can last throughout the day. This all comes down to your endorphins which is the body’s feel-good chemical that’s released when you are active.
And it’s not just the hormones released in your body. You also radiate a certain charisma and physical appeal. Regular exercise can make you feel better about yourself, your overall health and physical condition and other people. And this increase in self-worth goes up right away, even before you see a change in your body.
Self-worth is directly tied to your energy levels, your perceived attractiveness and your feeling of competence. And nothing is more fantastic than the self-confidence and assurance that comes from feeling good in your own skin.
Jumpstarts Your Sex Drive
Getting fit does not only make you look sexy, but it also makes you feel sexy. A sweat session helps improve blood flow, including below the belt, and this extra blood surge should make you feel more responsive.
Not only that, your body’s sex hormone levels, including testosterone, also increases. It can improve muscle tone, skin and hair, and powers up your sex drive in a psychological way, bringing you more confidence about your body and appearance.
