Tip 7- Let's Get Physical
Time to get physical! Your body needs to move, even if it's just a little bit! Learn more in part seven of this blog series entitled Seven Tips For Balanced Living.
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.
