When you exercise, you enhance your body’s natural release of endorphins. This surge in happy hormones can boost your mood and your confidence, and the good news is: you can exercise anywhere, even at home.

“Exercise stress,” when managed well, is healthy stress that over time pushes your body to adapt and become stronger and more efficient. Some studies suggest exercising on a regular basis is beneficial for immunological health, as it can have a positive effect on your body’s ability to remain well and fight off common illness.

Other studies have found that during flu season, the temporary rise in body temperature can discourage certain bacterial growth and the stress relief benefits of exercise help to keep you feeling at your best.
