We all know the importance of regular exercise. Getting enough exercise is vital to our overall health and helps improve blood circulation, prevent obesity and aids in fighting diseases like cold & flu, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high cholesterol and anxiety & depression to name a few.
So, what counts as exercise? Well, anything that involves movement, sweating and getting your heart rate up. Most people prefer going to the gym or joining a boot camp early in the morning, others prefer yoga, pilates or cycling. The most important thing is to find what works for you. For me personally, going to the gym is a tedious and intimidating task. I prefer a weekly yoga class and horse riding on the weekends and I absolutely love it! The goal is to find something that you enjoy. Check out the InfoGraphic below on the top 10 exercise myths.
Another great way is to fit exercises into your daily life, by climbing the stairs rather than taking an elevator, stop further away from a shopping centre entrance so you can walk a bit further and if you have a desk job, stretch throughout the day. Sitting the whole day can result in some serious health issues later on in life.
Lastly, it is also very important to improve your diet. Without a healthy diet, your exercise routine can be totally void. Stay away from processed food, sugary drinks, snacks and sweets. Add more fresh fruit (not fruit smoothies, fruit smoothies have a very high sugar content) and vegetables to your diet and maybe add a multi-vitamin to your morning routine.
