Movement is life! We need to be in motion – we were created for
Let’s be honest, we live very sedentary lives. We sit to drive to and fro, we sit at work (mostly) sit at dinner, sit in front of TV or computer after dinner, and then we lay to sleep.
We need movement to circulate our blood. Lack of movement causes lack of oxygen and slow blood circulation.
There are a couple of things we can do during the day to increase movement. Take the stairs rather than elevator. Park further out to increase steps. Take a walk around the office inside or preferably outside if possible every couple of hours.
Find ways to get some movement in everyday to increase lymph and blood circulation.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I decided to heal holistically and I learned a ton. If only I knew these things before to prevent illness in the first place. This is when I learned all about intelligent design of the body and how to help it thrive.
Exercise and movement is a huge part of healing.
In addition to daily movement, deliberate exercise is necessary also.
Moderate aerobic exercise 30-45 minutes 6 days a week.
Here are some thing you can do. Walking. Your goal should be 3 miles in 45 minutes.
Short light run. You can even alternate walking and jogging if you like. Personally, I hate running but I do love to walk outdoors.
Bike riding, Yoga, dancing (I love the figure 8 program), Zumba, jazzercise, rebounder, swimming. Swimming is great exercise but chlorine is VERY TOXIC so choose a salt water pool.
Today there are so many on line options, even for free.. We have NO EXCUSE!
If you can’t do 45-60 minutes at one time then break it into 15-20 segments. I have to do it all at one time or I won’t get it in.
Do whatever works for you.
Exercise increases oxygen, boosts T-cell production and boosts your immune system. Plus it releases endorphins which make you feel good.
Who doesn’t want to feel good!? When you exercise , you are telling your body to LIVE!
On the flip side the other super important component to healing and maintaining health is, SLEEP.
