Exercise promotes the production of serotonin, a natural “feel good” hormone!
Daily exercise keeps the blood flowing, ensuring healthy circulation and assisting the skin to dump toxins through sweat. You’ll find that your energy levels increase, you have improved mental clarity, your digestion is more efficient and you feel great!
Nourish your body with a daily exercise routine.
It’s important to keep in mind how much and which types of exercise will benefit you the most. Some people do better with more gentle, centring exercises while others want a more vigorous workout. Try walking, running, biking, swimming, yoga, Pilates, dancing, boot camp or gym classes and weights .(Maybe a couple of different workouts?) When you find what works for you, you’re more likely to be consistent and stick with it.
Discover what you love and make it a daily practise.
When and where aren’t important – some people prefer to exercise at night, some people first thing in the morning, some later in the day. there’s no right or wrong – it’s simple personal preference. the important thing is to just do it!
Accountability is the secret to a consistent routine.
What ever you choose to do, making yourself accountable will help you to stay on track. Whether you rely on a friend, family member, trainer or just your own will power, set some goals to track your progress and check-in weekly. (Use notes on your phone!) Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t make your weekly goal – review it – maybe you’ve set it too high. Begin with making a commitment to exercising for at least 10 minutes each day and then build from there.
Acknowledge all the types of exercise you do.
Don’t feel like yoga is a work-out? Your body, says differently.
Feel like you need to run 10 miles to make it count? Actually, less than a mile in, your endorphins are already soaring.
Once you find what works for you, and start noticing all the benefits you’re gaining, exercise will be like second nature and your body will thank you for it.
