Exercise: Keep that body moving!

Bulldozer remedy for health #4 includes exercise, rest and leisure activities.  This post will focus on the exercise part of that.

Many people who I meet feel afraid to start an exercise routine if they have been in pain or haven’t exercised in a long time.  I think that the key here is to first reduce one’s fear about it. Love your body as it is, and accept that you can make positive changes to continue to love your body.   I know that is easier said than done, however, that love for your body  reduces the fear of moving it and making changes.   I had to begin by telling myself positive statements like this:

1.  I want  to move through the world a little bit easier. If I stretch and exercise, it will become easier to do this.

2.  If I start small, breaking exercise into tiny components of movement, I know I can do this.

3.  Every day, I will add a little bit more movement to my routine, and before long I will be moving easier and have more energy.

4.  My body is beautiful as it is.  Exercise will make it feel inside,  as good as it looks on the outside, or even better.

I am a big proponent of positive affirmations.  I focus on what I can do, not what I can’t.  In the beginning of starting to exercise after being ill for so long, it took every ounce of energy I had, just to march in place for 3 minutes, or get my things together for someone to take me to the pool.  I pressed forward.  Before long, the exercise didn’t exhaust me any longer, and my body hurt less from stretching and strengthening the muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Now, my body needs exercise.  It is like medicine to me.  If I am hurting, going to the gym helps to turn it around. Sometimes that is from the rush of endorphins that I get,  and sometimes it is simply  from the act of moving my body, and sometimes it is both.  It isn’t necessary to do it at a gym, but I enjoy that.  If you don’t have access to the gym or don’t like that environment, just move your body while watching TV or listening to the radio.  March in place, or lift your arms up and down.  Look up some stretches online and add those into your routine.  Use soup cans to lift to strengthen your arms.  If the weather is nice, head outside for a walk or a bike ride.  You’ll be surprised what you can do.  I surprise myself all the time!

When I was very ill, many doctors told me that exercise wouldn’t help me.  I believed them, just like I believed a lot of other things that they told me.  They were very wrong.  Even though I have daily pain that I deal with and a number of autoimmune diseases, exercise has become an essential part of taking back my health.  It improves my mood and my general well-being.  Remember, no matter what level you are at today, you can make positive changes through keeping your body moving.  Show your body some love, and start today!

Peace,

Wendy Love Edge

Choosing a Healthy and Happy Lifestyle

Life is all about choices, and when we make positive healthy choices for ourselves, we are really choosing a positive and healthy life.  I am going to discuss three basic elements that you can look at today to help make a healthy lifestyle for yourself. They are good nutrition, exercise, and positive thinking.

With regard to good nutrition, there is a lot of literature out there about what food is healthy and what isn’t.  This can be very confusing to someone who is trying to change their eating habits.  I usually suggest to people to think of it simply.  Buy fresh organic vegetables, spices, herbs and fruits.  Choose items that are not processed.   When we do this and cook at home, we really can’t go wrong.  Then we know exactly what we are putting into our bodies.  And it tastes so much better!   Processed convenience products may be attractive at the outset because they are quick to prepare, but they are not a healthy choice for a long healthy life.  Read labels.   Watch for chemicals, dyes and added sugar or high fructose corn syrup.  These are things that you definitely do not need in your diet.  With everything I know, I was tempted to buy a jar of pre-made pesto the last time I went shopping.  Then I read the label. Sure, there were pine nuts, basil and olive oil.  Then there were several preservative chemicals that I couldn’t pronounce.  I quickly put it back on the shelf.  I could buy the ingredients to make my own pesto for a little more money, but  make three times the amount!

Additionally, if you are trying to lose some extra weight that you have built up in your body, it can be very confusing how to approach that in the safest and most nutritionally balanced way.  There are many programs out there, and it may seem  too difficult sometimes to even think about getting started.  Here is a health tip from Jay Morris Sprigs about that very subject:

 

 

Exercise is also a big factor in creating a healthy lifestyle.  Many times, we feel that we can’t possibly fit exercise into our lives, and we just don’t have enough energy to do it.  The truth is, if we fit it into our lives it would increase our energy level and make us feel stronger and more capable over the long-term.    It’s great to attend a gym especially if we have friends attending the gym and we can make it a social event.   But that isn’t always possible due to time crunches and financial issues.  And sometimes someone may just feel the gym isn’t for them.  So here is a health tip from Andrea Sumers about increasing your activity level without having to attend a gym:

 

The last healthy life style topic I want to discuss here, is  positive thinking.   Life is busy and often difficult today.  We get caught up in the worries of life, and forget a most basic element to a happy life.  Happy and positive thoughts.  Take a few moments every day, and think about what your mind is creating.  The thoughts we put into ourselves and outward into the Universe have an impact on the outcome of our lives.   A mantra that we create ourselves can help us to create the life we want.  Here is a sound clip on how to create a mantra:

Please consider your life style choices today, and what they are creating for you.   It is never too late to start creating the lifestyle that will bring you health, wellness,  and happiness.  Your happiness is in your own mind and choices.  The  creation of your life, for better or for worse, is  in your own two hands.
