Stressed? Not in a good mood? Feeling like you might have a cabin fever? Or feeling suffocated from being confined in the four corners of your work station?
What you probably need is to take a few minutes to go out and sweat all those stresses out. One of the ways to do so is through biking or cycling.
Just going outside, breathing fresh air, and sweating all those toxins are beneficial for your mental, physical and emotional health. What more if you do these while also giving your muscles and bones the stretch that they need?
You might have probably seen a lot of people ride their bikes to offices, or cycle to the mountains on weekends. Sometimes we might even get overfamiliar with seeing people in road bikes, mountain bikes and utility bikes that its health benefits are downplayed.
What are the benefits of cycling or biking?
Its health benefits range from cardiovascular to flexibility to weight control. Regular biking helps strengthen your heart muscle, thus the cardiovascular benefits. It is also helpful in improving the flexibility and strength of your muscles, as well as improve your coordination and posture. With biking, you do not only use a single part of your muscles, but you use your whole body, so it is a good way to give your body its much needed stretch. Similar to brisk walking and jogging, biking when done regularly will also help you decrease your body fat and reach your ideal body weight.
Aside from these health benefits, biking also helps reduce stress and anxiety. You are one ride away from being in a good mood. Indeed, bike your way to a better health. When you are burnt out, pedal it out!
