Exercise is a Key to Living in Optimal Health

The hardest part is just getting out there and jumping into a routine. You can do it.

The Many Benefits of Exercise and Moving the Blood in Your Body

A recent study out of Harvard has linked exercise to cognitive function in elderly women. Exercise is also known to be anti-inflammatory by turning on genes that suppress inflammation. Studies have show that those who exercise have lower C-reactive protein than those that do not. Exercise increases bone density, the happy hormones in the brain, regulates appetitie and metabolism and the list goes on and on.

Get that Body MOVING

You do not need to climb the highest peak in the world or train for the Iron Man — however, it is crucial to make exercise a priority in your life.  Get that blood circulating through your body.  Sustain a higher heart rate for 20 minutes to an hour every day of the week. Run, walk up hills, bike, do yoga, go to the gym, find an exercise DVD or online class, jump on a trampoline, try out crossfit.  There are so many ways to get exercise in your life.  Try it for 2 weeks solid and it may become your latest addiction.
