Movement is medicine

Whatever happens in your day, always find time for movement.

This doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and complete a massive training session, it could be something simple as going for a walk, a short yoga routine or stretching for 10mins.

Moving your body can change the thoughts in your head, it can bring focus, calm or be an outlet for frustration and rage. A number of studies have shown the positive effects of simply taking a lunchtime walk on not only the health of your body but also your mind.

We weren’t meant to be locked up in big office buildings all day with constant missiles of stress launched at us. Taking the time to move can reframe your thoughts, provide that creative spark and help prevent your body from falling apart too.

Quite simply the benefits overwhelm the reasons not to do it, health is the most important currency we have and movement can be your medicine.
