15 benefits of exercise that isn't about weight

I spent a long time over exercising and pushing my body through pain. I would force myself to exercise so I could “earn” food to eat that day. I only viewed exercise as a way to control my weight.  It was only during my recovery that I learnt that exercise didn’t have to be crazy workout regimes, just moving our body daily in a way that we enjoy is just as beneficial.
