Music absolutely affects our health. Music can bring about sound sleep, boost your mood and reduce anxiety. Joyful music causes the tissues in the inner lining of blood vessels to expand, increasing blood flow according to researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. So play your favorite music and get up or lay down and enjoy. Tip: The music you will probably like best is that from your teen years. Make the message positive. Every song is a story told by someone who has walked that path. What is your favorite song? I would love to hear from you!
Your chair is killing you!
Being a fitness instructor, I am an advocate of getting people up and moving..
That being said, diet is more important to weight loss than exercise.
And until you can start getting some of that extra weight off your bones, you are not going to feel like getting up and moving.
And you certainly are not going to dance, yoga, or walk those cookies, fries or potato chips away.
Your body requires a certain amount of calories just to maintain basic functions throughout the day.
To loose weight, the body must burn more calories than it takes in...you know and may have heard it a thousand times, calories in, calories out...
So what's a gal or guy to do?
Let's hear your ideas before I reveal my suggestions.
Let's have fun with this one, but keep it pg please!
Many people think of fitness in terms of strength, flexibility and movement (eg.walking, running).
However, there are several components to fitness.
Cardiovascular Endurance - that's walking, running and exercising your heart which increases the oxygen flow to all your muscles.
Muscular Strength and Endurance - the body's ability to move, lift objects and do day to day activities. For example, muscular endurance is how many times you can move a weight without getting exhausted.
Range of Motion - that's your ability to move a joint through a full range of motion (flexibility) .
Speed - Enough said!
Coordination - how your body works together to produce movements.
Agility- can you change body position efficiently, using balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength and endurance?
