Just Move!

Just Move!

Living Well

Of course one of the best – and most fun! – ways you can take care of yourself is through regular exercise. For some of us, we would benefit from it being a little more often, a little longer, a little more intense, or a little more varied.

As you set about trying to create a new goal or two on the exercise front, I want to remind you of a few helpful principles over the next few days:

Principle 1: All Movement Counts. 

No matter how you chose to move, it’s always beneficial to engage your muscles, and raise your heart and respiration rate. So, feel free to choose activities you love as well as those that are simply convenient. 

People always ask things like: is running on a treadmill better than biking? Is lifting heavy weights low reps better than lifting light weight high reps?

For today and all of this week: Don’t worry about things like that: Remember that all movement is beneficial and absolutely “counts”. Perhaps more important is your brain on this one. The brain craves habits, rituals, regularity, and forward momentum. Yesterday you moved. Today you moved. Those two things predict that you are likely to move again tomorrow. 

Just get moving. Worrying about what or how is for another day.
