Lifestyle and Movement
Carpathia Collaborative believes lifestyle and movement are a key factor on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not only for physical wellness but also for emotional and mental health as well.
Thinking of taking up some form of fitness? The time is now. Maintaining a regular fitness routine naturally helps to tone the body and but exercise also has a huge impact on how you feel and even how efficiently your brain works.
Studies have shown many psychological benefits of exercise are vast and can even be immediate, as a way to reduce anxiety for the simple reason that it releases endorphins into the blood stream which enhances mood immediately. Research also shows that regular exercise can calm the “fight or flight” trigger that escalates in most people who suffer from regular stress.
Regularly exercise, especially cardio, stimulates chemical changes in the brain that can aid with memory and better blood flow and is protective for blood vessels. But overall, making exercise a regular part of your weekly routine is a “triple win” when it comes to holistic healing since it naturally lowers inflammation in all areas, body, emotions, and mind.
New to regular exercise? The best way to begin is low and slow and work your way up to something more challenging. Choose a routine that is manageable and activities that are recommended by your practitioner that address your health challenges in a safe way. If you feel you lack the discipline to do it on your own, join a class or work out with a friend who will hold you accountable and cheer your on. You’ll get the added benefit and support of community of people who want to be healthier, just like you, and you may even have fun in the process.
