Why is Exercise recommended as a form of medicine?
Because as little as 30 minutes of moderate exercise, 5 days a week can save your life. Overall lack of activity is leading millions of people to sudden death, more occurrences of coronary heart disease, an increasing number of children and young adults are diagnosed with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. In the most recent studies 10% of breast cancer, and 10% of colon cancer is estimated to be due to physical inactivity.
How can you make a change and have exercise as part of your lifestyle?
I will offer a 30 minute session to find out what are your goals and create a plan with you to set aside time for your wellness. The sooner you start taking care of yourself, the better you feel. I believe that recommendations of exercise are motivating factors to improve and add healthy habits to your daily life.
You are the only one who can make the decision to start something new. You are already good to your friends and family, NOW, it’s your turn to take care of yourself.
The first step in meeting any recommendation to improve your health and wellness is to want to do it. Schedule your exercise at the beginning of the week.
