Time for our Top 10 Exercise Myths! We all know the importance of regular exercise. Getting enough exercise is vital for your overall health and helps improve your blood circulation, prevent obesity and aids in fighting diseases like cold & flu, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high cholesterol and anxiety & depression to name a few. But there are a few exercise myths you need to watch out for!
So, what counts as exercise? Well, anything that involves movement, sweating and getting your heart rate up. Most prefer going to the gym or joining a boot camp early in the morning, others prefer yoga, pilates or cycling. The most important thing is to find what works for you. For me personally, going to the gym is a tedious and intimidating task. The goal is to find something that you enjoy.
Another great way is to fit exercises into your daily life, by climbing the stairs rather than taking an elevator, stop further away from a shopping center entrance so you can walk a bit further and if you have a desk job, stretch throughout the day. Sitting the whole day can result in some serious health issues later on in life.
It’s Not Just Exercise – Food Matters Too!
Lastly, it is also very important to improve your diet. Without a healthy diet, your exercise routine can be totally void. Stay away from processed food, sugary drinks, snacks and sweets. Add more fresh fruit (not fruit smoothies, fruit smoothies have a very high sugar content) and vegetables to your diet and maybe add a multi-vitamin to your morning routine.
You can also opt for Ozone Therapy to help boost your overall health and to get rid of any side effects of a previous unhealthy lifestyle.
