Benefits of Daily Movement
The physical benefits of daily movement are no secret. Activities such as walking, strength circuits or yoga style workouts will help you build strength and endurance, improve movement efficiency and decrease chances of injury helping you maintain your energy and manage fatigue effectively! Get moving!
Regular movement benefits far more than just the body! Neurogenesis is the process where new neurons are formed in the brain. Daily movement increases this by improving the delivery of oxygen & nutrients resulting in the growth of new brain cells & enhancing cognitive function!
Taking movement breaks during the day helps improve mental clarity and manage stress effectively through the production of endorphins. Adding to this, the release of endorphins has been shown to assist quality of sleep. This in turn can help reduce stress.
Assists Weight Management
Inactivity is a primary risk factor for unwanted weight gain. Taking regular breaks during the day to get some movement in, regardless of intensity can help increase your metabolic rate. It has even been shown that standing rather than sitting for long periods requires more energy and could make a significant difference in the long run!
