Evidence from the past 20 years has been pointing to exercise and physical activity as the frontier of preventative medicine and considering the health benefits it has been proven to achieve, it’s really no wonder why.
A FEW BENEFITS OF EXERCISE:
- Relief of stress & improved mood
- Higher energy levels
- Reducing the risk of cardiovascular, neurological and musculoskeletal disease/injury
- Pain relief
- Weight loss
- Improved sleep
- Improved cognitive function and neural plasticity
‘MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE’
Exercise may not look like a pill to swallow with water, but with regular activity it may be just as effective at alleviating or preventing many health issues altogether. Our bodies were made to move, to walk and run and jump, to interact and create and help. By giving this necessity to our body, we gift it with health. It’s more important now than ever with the circumstances at hand. .
Exercise is a supplement to a healthy diet and behaviours amongst other things. If you’re considering starting a new exercise program, we recommend you consult your healthcare practitioner first and communicate any questions or concerns you have.
