The reality check is – are you getting any exercise or movement?
Lovely people- it’s all about movement – moving your body. Movement is life. When was the last time you exercised? Indeed, you can count walking to the store and back. Why not? I get thousands of enjoyable steps in daily by not driving.
There are a lot of reasons to keep moving.
Kenneth H. Cooper has said: “The reason I exercise is for the quality of life I enjoy.”
That sums it up for me. And you…?
What does being healthy mean to you?
Have you let your self-care habits drop off because your mind is fixed on other important matters?
Movement is life. And without it – people tend to age harshly. Staying fit is a big key to holistic health, wellness, and beauty. Studies show that exercising can actually slow down the aging process!
Now is the time to ignite your fitness. What’s more important than to get moving again? With exercise comes flexibility, strength and confidence in your body.
If you want to stay in good health for the rest of your life, then exercise is mandatory. You’ll find that the same modes of exercise you once did, don’t appeal to you anymore. This is normal. Also, it could be that your energy levels have changed. So what.
Honor your body’s changes that have occurred through the decades. You can adapt, adjust, and try new ways to get moving. And still have a blast. Exercise provides so many health benefits than you can even think of. Movement is life!
And, what if you don’t like to jog or run anymore? Then don’t run! But be sure to still exercise in some way regularly. You must care for your body just as you care about your business or your home. Make sure to schedule in your exercise time and prioritize this. Go for 30 minutes of exercise a day to live healthier and happier. Try for the 10,000 steps a day.
What do I mean when I say, movement and movement is life?
To move is to go in a specified direction or manner – to change position. It’s a physical activity. The same as exercise is an activity of movement, exertion, and effort.
Your motion does not have to be the official exercise we have come to know – unless you prefer that style. Exercise is from modern times. And movement is from ancient times.
Movement is life. Just think of how our bodies were designed to move. Get creative.
Walk more – take the stairs instead of elevators. You know the drill. Step away from your desk. Text neck is real. Put down your mobile, iPad, and laptop. That’s correct. Get up and move. Walk to that errand when you can – instead of taking a car.
You need to take care of your body. There’s no room for negotiation. It’s a must. When you’re in good health, then many positive things in your life cascade from this.
If you’re past 50, then you know that staying fit is a different scenario than when you were 30. Who cares – get past this mindset.
Mobility is a vital aspect of being healthy. Keeping active and using your body will in turn enhance your mood. I know you can find joy in this.
My message is to keep moving forward with your body and this will impact your mind. There’s a ton of research and proof now showing the huge benefits that regular exercise has on your brain health.
The very idea of movement should be a pleasant one just like a friend to us. We should want to move. Make movement a priority and a foundation of your lifestyle.
