Need More Reasons to Work Out Regularly? Read About the Health Benefits of Exercise!

August 26, 2015 5:16 pm

You know that working out is good for your health, but if you’re like most people, it can be difficult to fit regular workouts into your busy schedule. Instead of making excuses, check out these health benefits that just might motivate you to squeeze a few more workouts into your routine.

  • It regulates your weight. This one might seem like a no-brainer, but managing your weight is important for reasons far beyond your looks. Maintaining a healthy weight also helps to prevent chronic illness and help keep you feeling energized.
  • It improves your mood. If your stationary lifestyle makes you feel sluggish and depressed, take a walk outside in the sunshine or hop on your bike for a ride around town. Even gentle physical activity stimulates the feel-good chemicals in your brain and helps boost your self-esteem.
  • It combats existing health conditions. If you have heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes (or you’re just worried about getting them), regular exercise boosts your production of “good” cholesterol and decreases your production of harmful triglycerides.
  • It prevents against cancer. That’s right: regular workouts have been proven to prevent against certain types of cancer, including breast cancer, colon cancer, and certain types of lung cancer.

Sometimes, coffee is the only necessity you need to get you through the day! For all of you coffee drinkers that want some great coffee recommendations aside from the typical trip to Starbucks, here are some great cafes you should go to pick up your cup of Joe.

Located in downtown Carlsbad, you can find Vinaka Café, Café Elysa, and La Costa Coffee Roasting!
Vinaka Café: This small beach town café definitely is a place to go to catch up with a friend or even do a little bit of home work. Not only do they have amazing coffee, you can also pick up some creamy gelato or a breakfast sandwich.
Café Elysa: This patio style café is the perfect place to grab a coffee with your friends and relax while listening to the ocean waves, breeze and the active San Diegans enjoying the beach and weather.
La Costa Coffee Roasting: You can smell the coffee from a mile away! Located right down the street from Windsor at Aviara, this coffee shop is filled with friendly, and hard working people who like to bring their laptops and get some notes done while enjoying some great coffee.

Located in Encinitas, you can find Lofty Coffee Company, Pannikan Coffee and Tea, and Better Buzz Coffee!
Lofty Coffee Company: This trendy café is one to check out. The line here is always out the door and they make a mean eggs benedict. Make sure to snag a table early, because this place is always popping!
Pannikan Coffee and Tea: This adorable yellow coffee shop that is a converted railroad station, gives it customers a variety of beverage flavors from all over the globe.
Better Buzz Coffee: Newly built in the heart of Encinitas, this coffee shop brings some flavor and fun with its bar style scenery and good vibes.
