Move the Body to Shift the Mind
Activity helps us keep our body and mind in motion. Change is difficult to create in our lives of routine and set patterns. Sometimes in order to change your mindset it requires physical changes to help get it going. If you are not active start with walking, then graduate to more intense exercise as your energy capacity improves. Observe the changes in your choices as they become more supportive of your effort to improve your fitness. Give yourself a reason to choose better and healthier: “Your investment in you.” Create the ability to make the energy we need to live a truly effective lifestyle. The amount of activity will differ based on your individual goal. Challenge yourself to achieve 30 minutes of activity everyday.
