Exercise

Exercise is key to a balanced life!  30 minutes a day of exercise can reduce stress and boost energy levels.  It can be hard to motivate yourself to exercise, but your body will thank you.  Don't forget to stretch before and after a work out because flexibility helps keep your spine healthy.  Using a foam roller gets all those hard to reach muscle relaxed.  You work your mind all day, don't let your body feel left out!

Start by finding which activity is best for you!

Sitting all day and feeling stiff? Try yoga or pilates
Arthritis makes movement difficult? Try swimming or water aerobics
Looking to lose weight? Try cardio workouts, such as walking, biking or stairs
Athlete wanted to get in shape for next season? Try weight lifting combined with cardio
Strained for time? Put a pedal bike under you desk
