3 Health Benefits Of Cycling You Didn't Know About 😍😍😍
Updated: Jul 14
Cycling is more than just a ride. Really. 🚴
Have you ever wondered, apart from the windy breeze you enjoy, what benefits do you achieve from cycling? Well, today we aim to introduce 3 health benefits of cycling you did not know about! (You will be amazed by the third benefit, similar to how we were as we wrote this post. 😉)
1) Decreased Stress Levels 😇
Feeling stressed and wondering what you can do to alleviate these emotions of yours?
Well, one of the natural remedies would be cycling.
Cycling is proven to reduce a person's cortisol level and increase serotonin levels. This essentially means better sleep as cortisol is known to be a hormone that impedes deep sleep and rest while serotonin is a hormone that regulates your mood throughout your day!
So what are you waiting for? Grab an SG Bike and ride that stress out!
2) Weight Loss 💃 🕺
Have been staying home and ordering your hearts out via food deliveries?
Yeap, guilty as charged, we can totally relate to that.... 🙁
As much as we love indulging in amazing food, it is also important to keep our weights in check through proper diets and exercise. Exercise always sounds like a painful and dreadful activity to many. However, not all hope is lost!
Imagine cycling around with the cooling breeze in your hair while burning calories simultaneously. Isn't that an ideal way to exercise? Therefore, we are highlighting the weight-loss impact of cycling and that every hour of cycling burns up to 300 calories (equivalent to one cheeseburger)! Imagine how many cheeseburgers you may have burned off if you cycle an hour a day!
3) Improved Body Posture 🙋 🙋♂️
Tired of having backaches after a long day of work? Are you slouching in your seat as working from home becomes the new normal once again?
Despite it being normal and common to many, it is an unideal symptom in the long term. Body posture is an important aspect to cultivate over time and a good posture goes a long way especially when age catches up with you.
You must be wondering, apart from sitting upright 24/7 (almost impossible) and making a trip to the chiropractor, how does one improve his/her body posture?
Yet again, cycling is the remedy to your woes. Cycling is found to improve one's body posture as the cycling stance provides you with a stretched and straightened back throughout most of your journey. Backaches 0: Cyclists 1😎
