The entire world is being impacted by COVID-19. Keep MO’ving every day because physical activity will give you the energy and resilience needed to get through this!
The worst thing we cannot just stop and stand still, although it may seem like the entire world is coming to a halt. It’s important to keep yourself MO’ving and there are ways to do this! It just means making some changes and modifications to our current physical activity habits.
It is a difficult time for all of us, when we must make adjustments in our lives which are causing stress and anxiety. However, I am happy to let you know that exercising is one of the best ways to keep you not only physically healthy and strong but also improve your mental health and wellbeing. It makes you feel good! I find it such a great way to create positive momentum and help me MO’ve forward! It is important that we keep MO’ving, especially at this time, when so many forces may tempt you to stall, stay home and do nothing. It doesn’t take long to feel the different and the benefits of MO’ving your body! Exercise naturally promotes the release of endorphins–a natural hormone our body produces, which enhances our sense of well-being. The more we can keep MO’ving the better we will feel!
There are so many benefits to exercise. Some of these include giving us energy, decreasing stress levels, and strengthening us. Furthermore, exercising regularly, as part of a healthy lifestyle, is a healthy way to strengthen your immune system! This will help your body stay resilient, which is so important at this time. You can read more about the benefits of MO’ving your body and being physically active here.
