1) Sharpen your thinking.
In a recent study in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, scientists have found that people scored higher on tests of memory, reasoning, and planning after 30 minutes of spinning on a stationary bike than they did before they rode. They also completed the tests faster after pedaling.
After lot of stressful work, riding a bicycle for 30 minutes refreshes your mind. And your morning ride takes away your stress from home😝, so that you can work there in the office.
So, Ride -Work – Ride – Repeat 😁
3) Grows your mind
Yes, you read correct. It actually helps in growing your brain.
When you pedal, you also force more nerve cells to fire. As these neurons light up, they intensify the creation of proteins like brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and a compound called noggin (yes, really), which promote the formation of new brain cells. The result: You double or triple the production of neurons—literally building your brain. You also release neurotransmitters (the messengers between your brain cells) so all those cells, new and old, can communicate with each other for better, faster functioning.
That’s a pretty extended benefit to cyclists.
4) Positive Attitude
Cycling can elevate your mood, relieve anxiety & increase stress resistance.
Cycling also helps in treatment of Depression. A recent study analyzing 26 years of research finds that even just some exercise—as little as 20 to 30 minutes a day—can prevent depression over the long term.
And regularly riding your bike helps keep hormones like adrenaline and cortisol in check, which means you will feel less stressed and will bounce back from anxiety-filled situations very easily.
5) Most important one – It makes you look younger !!!
This is what everyone wants😆. Scientists have found that cycling regularly can protect your skin against harmful effects of UV radiation & reduces the signs of ageing.
The increase in circulation through exercise delivers oxygen & nutrients to skin cells more effectively while flushing harmful toxins out.
It also creates an ideal environment within the body to optimize collagen production, helping reduce the appearance of wrinkles & speed up the healing process.
