Am I the only person who likes to believe that just sitting in my chair:
I’ll overcome my stiff hips?
My back will naturally un-kink?
Those tight muscles will naturally stretch themselves?
Anita’s Method: Tailored support to achieve success.
How can physical activity improve my mental health and well-being?
- help your body release ‘good hormones’ endorphins. They can make you feel good and improve mood.
- can help with concentration.
- help you get a better night sleep.
- can change your body and mind which may help you feel more confident.
- fitness routines can help to manage your mental health.
- fitness goals may help with motivation.
What comes to mind when you think of exercise?
- the gym?
Anything that gets your body moving is a physical activity.
How much physical activity should I be aiming for?
Any physical activity is better than none. Guidelines say adults should aim to do about 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week. This can be broken up into chunks, for example, you could do 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week.
This is something to aim towards. If you don’t do much physical activity right now, start off small and build up. Aim for 30 minutes per week to start with. This can be broken down into 10-minute blocks if you prefer.
There are several positive lifestyle factors that can promote good health if you want to live a long and healthy life.
- Getting adequate quality sleep
- Eating regular well-balanced foods
- Engaging in regular physical activity
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Reducing alcohol intake
- Trying to stop smoking
