20 Oct I like to Move it Move it!
As we continue the conversation about supporting a healthy immune system, we know the importance of our nutrition habits. Additionally, we know the positive impact that physical activity has on our bodies. So this week, here are few thoughts and ideas to include exercise into your weekly rhythm:
- Walk, jog, ride if you’re able. A FUNctional way to get from A to B during this glorious time of year while getting in some movement is planning your commutes and walking, jogging, rollerblading, riding a bike, scooter, skateboard, etc.
- Whether you work from home or the office, add some outdoor breaks into your day. Block off 5-10 minutes in your schedule to stand up and breathe in some fresh air outside.
- Consider a weekly scrum with yourself to look at your week as a whole and plan out your physical activity. Having margin built into your week by scheduling activity is a wise way to be intentional about moving your body. While you’re at it, invite a spouse, family member, friend, or co-worker to join you during your planned movement. We can’t wait to see you at boot camp!
- Can’t get outside? No problem. Take advantage of body weight exercises, YouTube desk yoga, Netflix has Nike Training Club, or talk to Sarah about recorded workouts. Keep it fresh and fun by coming up with weekly squat or push up challenges for yourself at the top of every hour.
We all have preferences when it comes to physical activity. Trial a few of these ideas and add some of your own in and find the right rhythm for you this fall.
