You’ve been told a hundred times that exercise is good for you, and it’s true—but it’s good for a lot more than just losing weight or building muscle. Here are 10 other benefits you’ll see from just a little daily exercise.

10. You’ll Improve Your Memory

Ever feel like you think a bit more clearly after a good workout? Not only is your brain getting more energy and oxygen, but many studies have shown that exercise can boost your memory and help you learn better. Of course, an intense workout right before a big exam could leave you more tired than smart—but the two are still undoubtably linked.

9. You’ll Have Better Posture

Good posture is important, and one of the best ways to fix your posture is to exercise the muscles holding you back. Check out some of the most common posture problems people have, and which muscles you should work out to help fix them. Regularly exercising your abs, back, and other muscles can go a long way into fixing your posture, both sitting and standing.

8. You’ll Boost Your Confidence

Obviously, exercise can improve your appearance which can improve confidence, but there’s more to it than that. Exercise can also help you feel more accomplished and social (if you work out at a gym). Even if you don’t see immediate results in your body, that effort will make you feel better—and a bit of confidence can go a long way.
