Tips to Stay Healthy in 2019
Find something that you love doing
Most people give up on their fitness goals because they choose an activity that they don't enjoy. People tend to think that it's impossible to enjoy exercise and that it's a chore, but if you find a fun activity then that chore becomes a pleasure. Try running, swimming, fitness classes, team activities, solo sports activities … you will find the right exercise for you!
Don't forget fuel, hydration and stretching
People unfamiliar with exercise may neglect to fuel up, hydrate and stretch. If you’re exercising to lose weight then you may think that you don't need to eat before or during a run as your body will burn fat. In fact your body does not really burn fat during exercise, but it does burn fat after the exercise to replace the fuel used.
If you do not eat before exercising your body will feel fatigued and you may become ill. Also hydration during exercise and stretching before and after is very important. Drink water every half an hour or so at least during exercise, and get advice from expert sources about the stretches you will need to perform.
Make sure that you are properly adjusted
If you have not exercised for some time, then the chances are your body is not quite ready to go and pound out a marathon in a week or so's time. If you have a sedentary job then you may have adopted a bad posture while you are seated that's caused your spine to be improperly aligned. If you do not 'feel right' during and after exercise then you might need the services of a chiropractor to align everything back up again.
If you are having mobility problems, then the services of a first class chiropractor may just be what you need.
