AMI Clinic Bedford #Lifestyle Resolution 4: Move Your Body as Much as Possible Throughout Each Day

Exercise affects your entire body—from head to toe—in beneficial ways. This includes changes in your muscles, lungs, heart, joints, bones, and brain. 

In fact, researchers recently suggested that exercise is "the best preventive drug" for many common ailments, from psychiatric disorders to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. 

Compelling evidence actually suggests that even if you exercise regularly, prolonged sitting is itself a risk factor for chronic disease.

So, please, don’t get discouraged because your resolution to join the gym has already petered out. Instead, perhaps you may be better off focusing your attention on simple everyday movements instead. The key is to frequently move your body, throughout the entire day. Simply standing up from a seated position has been found particularly effective at counteracting the ill effects of sitting. 

Other simple everyday activities such as housecleaning, cooking, gardening, doing laundry, and reaching for an item on a high shelf, also fall within the spectrum of movements you would ideally engage in—more or less continuously—from morning until night. 

You can encourage more movement in your work day simply by moving items you use frequently so that they’re NOT within immediate reach.

So keep moving people!
