Movement is Critical to Well-being

By Dr. Elize St. Charles, Ph.D.

Posted in ,

Daily exercise is probably your most effective health tool. The body requires movement; lack of it results in stagnation. Think stagnant water! Movement increases body heat and blood circulation, helps the lymphatic system remove waste, lubricates joints, moves the digestive tract, and is the most effective long-term treatment for depression.

BUT, you have a busy life, you say.  No time.

What’s the solution? Start simple. Find a few quick exercises you can always do, without changing clothes or driving somewhere: jumping jacks, taking the stairs, dancing to your favorite song, skipping rope, desk stretches, practicing hatha yoga, biking to work or to shop, walking to school or around the block, leaf raking, sweeping, vacuuming – make a daily difference. Be creative! It becomes easier and more enjoyable to exercise the more you actually move. Watch the benefits snowball into VITALITY!
