Another Reason to Exercise: It Gives You Energy

When you are feeling chronically fatigued, chances are high the last thing you want to do is exercise. However, a new study shows that a little exercise might just be what you need.

Researchers found that young adults, who complained they were tired all the time, benefited from exercising three days a week for 25 minutes, which included a warm up. Study participants who biked for exercise at a low intensity, had the greatest gains in energy and they didn't even need to break a sweat. None of the participants became exercise fanatics; most stayed sedentary except for their time on the stationary bike, yet they felt a 20 percent boost in their energy levels.

Take home message: If you are feeling tired don't melt into oblivion on your couch, get up and exercise.
