Regular Exercise As Part of Natural Health Remedies
Posted Nov 16 2009 10:00pm
Early this year, I made a resolution to pick up a regular exercise regime for the year. Looking back, I’m glad I stood by it with Pilates and it has become part of my weekly schedule since. Regardless of what natural health remedies you embrace for any condition in your body, daily exercise can make a difference in your body. When you exercise, you are working your heart, mind and body all at once.
Besides that, exercise encourages your heart to pump blood throughout your body more effectively, which means that you will have healthier blood and a reduced risk of heart disease. Fatty deposits will be reduced, which in turn helps reduce the risk of many health problems such as diabetes and obesity. People who exercise regularly tend to have a positive attitude due to the increase of endorphins flowing through your body.
In many natural health remedies, patients are often encourage to workout regularly for a minimum of half an hour. This includes brisk walking, throwing a Frisbee with your children, riding a bicycle in the park or bouncing on the rebounder. While shopping for a Diamond Initial Pendant with a friend, she asked if shopping can be a workout too! Well, I am not sure if that is enough to get the blood pumping throughout the body, but whatever the workout is, keep in mind that it should elevate your heart above it standing heart rate and it should make you breathe slightly heavier than normal. For me, Pilates is good as I can feel my muscles being challenged.
So as the year is ending in few weeks’ time, it’s time to schedule in some workout time in your new year’s resolution list. Make exercise a part of your lifestyle, make it a part of your journey to better health.
