25th March 2011

Too many people confine their exercise to jumping to conclusions, running up bills, stretching the truth, bending over backward, lying down on the job, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck.
7am and 7,000 steps on my pedometer already, my morning walk really does wake me up and make me feel good.

This week has been all about ‘getting the buzz’ through activity, so this morning I’d like to point out that the suns starting shining again, go outside and enjoy it.

Be active...

Go for a walk or a run. Step outside. Cycle. Play a game. Garden. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good. Most importantly, discover a physical activity you enjoy and one that suits your level of mobility and fitness.

Regular physical activity is linked to improved mental and physical wellbeing. Physical activity makes us feel better immediately through the release of uplifting chemicals into our bodies.

There are many different types of physical activities that you can do. The key is finding an activity that you enjoy doing this will make it easier for you to keep doing it.

Exercise and physical activity can:

• Increase self esteem & confidence.
• Get rid of built up stress and frustration.
• Provide a distraction from your worries.
• Give a natural energy boost.
• Improve sleep.
• Give you a sense of achievement.
• Is motivating.
• Help make new friends.
• Improve mood.
• Is fun!
If you’ve never exercised, start slowly and increase your activity level gradually. It is recommended that you should do at least 30 minutes of moderate/intense activity 5 time a week.

Any activity that you do for at least 10 minutes at a time counts towards your 30 minutes a day target, and yes this includes sex! However, any exercise you do needs to last at LEAST 10 minutes and should be making you a little warmer than usual and slightly out of breath to count as moderate intensity. ;D

Did you know that outdoor exercise that exposes you to sunlight affects the pineal gland directly boosting mood.

Having said all that, it’s Friday and I don’t plan to do much of anything, once my paperworks done, today is going to be all about rest – you’ve got to get the balance right ;D

Have a gorgeous day xx
