 This is the last post of a 7-part blog series called Seven Tips For Balanced Living that shares specifically how our family improved our living habits, living them out on a daily basis, so we could get our health under control.

Exercise Allows the Body to Work Properly and Reduces Stress!

Most everyone can take ten minutes a day to stretch, breath deeply, take a walk around the block, or practice some form of physical movement.

Exercise is important for implementing total health because it allows the body to work properly, and reduces stress while burning calories. So make a goal and do it! Just don't make your goal unrealistic- you don't want to discourage yourself just out of the starting block. Moderate exercise, even just 10-15 minutes a day is much better than trying to go from the couch to a 5K run in a week. Build up and enjoy the experience of feeling your body move!

No one would classify me as an athlete, so I know what a struggle this can be for many of you. But rest assured, there is an activity you can find that is pleasant for you. Just keep trying new things out until you find what works for you. But also, have a quick back up if your activity is arduous to begin or time consuming. Sometimes 15 minutes of Pilates is all you can fit in, but that's way better than making an excuse about not doing anything at all. And if all else fails, get outside with your kids and play - that can be the best workout of all times!

Be sure to take time to stretch out after your work out as well. Let your muscles get fully oxygenated. The more oxygen you get into your system, the more healing at a cellular level that can occur. Writing this has inspired me, so see you on the trail.

  Please see the related Wellness Resources we have provided to support the Seven Tips for Balanced Living series. You will find recipes, grocery shopping list, shopping tips and other useful tools to move you down the path of better nutrition.

Libby Wright, mother of four who homeschools, is an original founder of SupplementRelief.com in 2010. She suffered through challenging diseases including Interstitial Cystitis, Graves and Lyme. After years of little progress with traditional medicine, she pursued integrative medicine, applied what she learned, and got healthier. She became passionate about wanting others to experience the same "relief" she had come to know, and SupplementRelief.com was born. She is now managing her illness with a lot of prayer, a lot of nutrition/supplements, and a little prescription medicine. She has been able to resume her normal life and, while there is no cure for her particular conditions, she is able to cope, enjoy every day, and encourage others.

Ever wonder what a healthy grocery list would look like? One of the things many people tell us is that it seems too hard to change shopping habits. They feel eating healthy is harder or costlier. I can tell you shopping for whole, natural foods is less expensive, easier and much faster in the grocery store than dealing with a bunch of processed foods.
