Even Mild Exercise Offers Big Benefits

If you’re not an avid exerciser, you’re probably familiar with how hard it can be to just start moving. Especially for people with pre-existing health conditions or injuries, you may feel like the activities you’re capable of are not even ‘worth’ doing.

However, experts agree just about any exercise is worth doing regardless of your initial limitations, and even walking can improve your physical and mental well-being, from strengthening muscles to boosting endorphins.

Consult your doctor before starting any program, and begin with just a few minutes a day. Gradually increase your intensity and duration and start reaping the rewards!

Benefits at a Glance

While many people engage in exercise for weight management or stress relief, the benefits don’t stop there. Studies have shown walking can help:

  • Lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
  • Help promote sleep
  • Reduce aches and pains
  • Improve mood
  • Manage weight
  • Reduce the risk of breast cancer
  • Boost brain power
  • Support healthy bones

The Best Approach

As with all aspects of health, a holistic approach should be considered when beginning any exercise program. Don’t push yourself too hard at first – you want to avoid injuries and stay motivated.

Herbal remedies such as devil’s claw, glucosamine and Indian frankincense have been used in natural and traditional medicine to support and maintain joint and tissue health, and homeopathic remedies like Arnica (6C), Dulcamara (6C), and Bryonia (6C) help address joint and muscle inflammation and pain, offering complete support for a smooth transition into becoming more physically active!
