We are so busy in our day-to-day lives that we often forget about an important factor in our wellbeing…. Getting our bodies moving! Engaging in physical activity can be so beneficial to both our physical and mental health!
Studies have demonstrated that even walking can help significantly improve your mental and physical health! Walking has been proven to help boost self-esteem and make you feel better on a daily basis (Barton et al., 2009). Walking is one of the easiest forms of exercise and one of the best forms to get started with no matter what your fitness level may be! Our bodies thrive from exercise and yours will as well. Get up, get out, and get walking; your body will thank you!
