Keep Exercising

1558Exercise reduces your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, it makes your heart stronger, improves lung capacity, eases digestion and stress and helps you keep off excess weight. When you stop exercising, the benefits stop. Without exercise, blood pressure and blood sugar levels can rise. Getting back into an exercise routine after a break can be intimidating, but that shouldn’t stop you. Whether you’ve been just too busy, or have had to stop exercising because of an injury or setback, exercise is too important to let go completely.*

Take baby steps and ease back into exercise, without placing too much strain or demand on your body. Start small with something like stretching, build to yoga, then a long walk, and soon, a light jog.
