Thyroid gland plays an important role in the functioning of your body, because it produces a hormone that regulates your metabolism. When a woman has hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, her metabolism slows, she tends to gain weight faster and feels tired.

What’s more, hypothyroidism has a negative effect on your mood. The thyroid gland helps regulate the chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) that your brain uses to communicate with your nerves. When your thyroid gland does not function properly, these chemical messengers can go haywire, making you a prisoner of anxiety and depression.

How can you fight a hypothyroidism? Firstly, you need to consult a doctor and get the right dose of thyroid hormone. Secondly, you need to add some exercises in your daily life. Exercises can help you burn calories by preventing weight gain. What’s more, performing some effective exercises, you can improve your mood!

Today, we would like to present you with an effective workout that can help you fight hypothyroidism. We recommend you to start with 15 reps of each exercise and work up to 20. When you start doing the exercises, it will take you 15-20 minutes. After a while, when you’ll get your workout in, you will need to perform three sets of 15 to 20 reps for 40 to 45 minutes. Physical activity should be a part of your life! Just do it!
