Mental Benefits of Exercise and Healthy Nutrition
1. More Commitment and Discipline
Commitment is also the dedication to a cause and having it for your fitness program can translate to some aspects of your relationship with your potential life partner.
When you have a workout routine that you follow every week, you make a commitment that no matter what you will stick that plan. Following it on consistent basis, even on bad days is a result of discipline

You can also have the discipline to be good and honest to them even on bad days because you have managed to be able to have this in your fitness life.
2. Reduced Stress and Anxiety
Stress is the feeling of emotional or physical tension and anxiety is the response to the stress. The stress becomes out of proportion to the impact of what’s caused it, when it’s anxiety. You will also not be able to set it aside and may need help with it.
Stress and anxiety in an interaction or relationship can make for an uncomfortable conversation or an argument that doesn’t add value to the relationship or is actually a result of your personal stress.
Exercise relieves you of stress as result of endorphins (feel-good hormones) that are released during and after exercise. The food that you eat helps with energy and improves your sleeping abilities. Improved energy and sleeps helps relieve you of stress and anxiety.
When you feel good, you do good, which your potential life partner will love about you.

4. Improved Quality of Sleep
The quality of sleep is based on the amount of restlessness you have during the night. The moments you have of waking up during the night too.
