Being Well

Being Well – Beyond Exercise

Many people equate fitness with exercise and working out in the gym, and struggle to set reasonable goals for themselves to become more fit. Josh Anderson, founder of DIYActive.com, suggests taking more of a lifestyle approach. The more you can think about integrating activity into your day, even in very small bouts of movement, the more likely you are to experience benefits such as more energy, better sleep, and less stress.

If you’re just getting started, simply taking a walk is an underrated but important form of movement. Including strength training through basic body weight exercises builds muscle and helps burn calories. If you’re already used to activity, you might think about changing things up once a month, increasing intensity, time, or resistance, or even trying out something new. Most important, find activities that you enjoy doing so that you will integrate movement into your life.
