Are you feeling under the weather? Frustrated? Anxious? Do you feel discontented with life? Exhausted physically, mentally and spiritually? If you answered yes to any of these questions it might be time for you to take a good hard look at your lifestyle and re-evaluate your goals and where you want to go. It’s never too late. The best time to start is now. Let’s take a closer look at what steps you can take to create a healthy and vibrant life for yourself.
1. Make Time for Physical Activity
Taking care of your body and maintaining physical fitness is essential to leading a healthy life. Studies have shown that as little as 30-minutes per day of exercise can have dramatic positive effects on your overall health. Exercise relieves stress, improves blood flow, sleep, mood, self-image, mental acuity, and helps prevent and combat obesity.
The good news is that you don’t have to join a gym or participate in a strenuous exercise program in order to reap the benefits. Walking, stretching, and doing household chores are some of the activities you can do. The most important thing to do is get up off the couch and move your body. Best of all, you don’t even have to exercise for 30-minutes in a row. You can break it down into increments of 3 x 10-minutes and achieve the same health benefits.
