Exercise for the Body and Mind

Exercise plays such a vital role in our lives and helps us in staying physically and mentally fit. Most people look at it as just something people do to prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. As important as this is, exercise has so many more essential, positive benefits on our body and our mind. It will help us lead a healthier and happier life.


Physical activity and movement are easy to introduce and become a part of every day life. This can be done by getting more active throughout our day, making small changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walk for short journeys instead of taking the car. Consistency is key. Even getting off the bus a few stops early to walk the rest of the way home can be a great way to get moving, without going to the gym, or realizing you're exercising.


Exercise can be very enjoyable and there are so many ways to get our bodies moving. Having a walking partner, taking a class or joining a team can be fun, motivating and also very social. Make the most of what you love doing by combining it with exercise.


The physical movement through exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to our tissues and helps our cardiovascular system work more efficiently. Our bodies are made to move and exercising daily will help us improve muscle strength. Our tendons and ligaments will also benefit by becoming more flexible which will allow you to move easily and will protect you from sudden injuries.


Exercise breaks down the body’s muscles, and collagen assists in the rebuilding process. Collagen builds lean healthy muscle as well as healthy joints and bones. Taking Vida Glow daily helps restore collagen levels, allowing the body to repair itself, by repairing muscle tissue. Including two to three sachets of Vida Glow into your day will help muscles heal faster, and assists in building leaner muscle especially when taken after exercise.

 

As well as helping us on the inside exercise can make us feel better about ourselves and our appearance which can boost confidence and improve self-esteem. Another amazing effect is that it can help reduce stress levels and give more energy. Regular physical activity can also improve our ability to sleep by helping us fall asleep faster and deeper allowing the body to repair and restore itself.

 

There are so many great reasons to add exercise into our daily routine. Not only will we feel better physically and mentally but we can also stay in shape by doing our favourite activities, without realizing we’re getting a workout!
