Exercise and increase your energy

3/ IT INCREASES ENERGY
In a report published in June men who cycled for 20 minutes experienced a 166% increase in self-reported energy levels, compared with a 15% increase when they sat and did nothing for the same amount of time. The study size was small, but it’s not the first to suggest exercise as a drug-free way to alleviate symptoms of fatigue. “If people need a reason to work out, the energy boost is a worthwhile one,” says study author Patrick J. O’Connor of the department of kinesiology at the University of Georgia.
