It is no hidden fact that exercise is good for us. But when choosing between exercising and sleep it always comes down to I’ll start tomorrow. But in addition to a pile of various studies about exercise, there is one that will seriously make you rethink about hitting the gym.
The researchers of Yale and Oxford collected data from 1.2 million people about their physical and mental behavior and found that exercise makes you way more happy than money.
In this research, respondents were asked about their income asked to choose from 75 types of physical activities which included activities ranging from lawn-mowing, childcare, and housework to weight lifting, cycling and running.
After concluding all of their answers, researchers found out that those who were regular with their workout routine felt bad for about 35 days in a year while those who didn’t exercise were observed to have gone through 58 bad days approximately.
