5 Steps to Good Health - Movement

Author -  Good Health

It’s no secret that regular exercise is important for your body’s overall health, but we understand that when life gets busy your exercise routine is one of the first things to be neglected. Moving your body is one of the simplest ways to connect with yourself, boosting your energy levels to set you up for the day, as well as a good night’s sleep.

Why does movement matter?

Research suggests regular exercise helps to reduce the number of infections we face each year, not only because it helps to strengthen our immune system, but because exercise helps to flush toxins from the body too.

Regular exercise throughout the year improves cardiovascular health and lowers blood pressure. As a muscle, your heart needs regular exercise so that it can pump blood throughout the body. Without exercise the muscle will lose strength. As little as 30 minutes per day can help to lower blood pressure, reduce stress and tension and aid weight loss, factors that are all linked to having high blood pressure.

Exercise has a positive effect on our mind, body and spirit. If you are suffering from depression or stress, regular gentle exercise is one way to improve your overall sense of well-being. One way that exercise improves our mental state is by removing the by-products of stress that surge through our bodies, helping us to find inner calm.

Exercise keeps your skin healthy and glowing too. Unlike the heart, the lymphatic system does not have a pump and relies on the movement of your body to keep it flowing. When the lymphatic system is congested, waste can build up in the tissue of our body and cause rashes, blemishes and irritation.

When suffering from an illness try not to push through, the body requires time to recover. Intense exercise can impair the immune system when it is already under pressure. Instead, take a gentle walk when unwell to help flush out the lymphatic system and aid recovery.

The worst part about upping your movement is getting started. Half of the battle is taking the first step. Just do it! Try to switch off that inner monologue that’s deterring you just long enough so that you can get started. Don’t open the curtains to check the weather before you put on your gear, just get dressed and go. Once you’ve started, it’s more than likely you’ll finish.

Try Good Health’s 5 Steps to Incorporating more Movement into your Daily Routine:

1. Find what works for you…
Whether it is going for a run, taking a walk in nature, dancing, taking the kids to the park or practising breath-focussed movement like yoga, Pilates or tai-chi; make sure you move your body in a way that is enjoyable every day. Try out a few tricks to see what motivates you, that might mean packing your gym bag before going to sleep the night before, arranging to work out with a friend or getting into your gear before leaving work.

2. … and start small!
It’s important to try starting small when increasing movement in your routine, especially if you don’t currently move often. Walking around the block is better than nothing, but pushing yourself too far too quickly will discourage you from continuing good exercise habits. Start by introducing intentional exercise into your daily routine; park your car further away from work and walk, or take the stairs instead of the elevator. Magnesium Cream is a great addition to soothe those muscles when you’re getting back into it.

3. Look after your muscles and joints 
If you’re upping your exercise and looking to be more active, it’s important you look after your muscles and joints. The last thing you want to is derail your progress due to an injury. Turmeric is a great natural support for joint and muscle comfort. If you are concerned about your joints, Pannex Joint supports joint comfort and functional mobility. It’s important to support any joint stiffness to allow more time to enjoy each day. Gentle regular exercise may help to manage and support mobility and flexibility without causing too much stress on joint health. Low-impact activities, ice or heat packs and the use of supplements, may all help to manage your joint health effectively in the long-term.

4. Stay hydrated 
Hydration is key to both your performance during exercise and your recovery afterwards. Water helps to transport nutrients around your body as well as regulating your body temperature and lubricating your joints. Without it, you could experience muscle cramps, fatigue and dizziness. You should be drinking one litre of water for every hour that you exercise, to the point where your urine is a very pale yellow if not clear.


5. Fuel yourself properly
It seems simple but without a balanced diet, your body can’t get what it needs to recover. You need fats to fuel your hormones and joints, protein to repair your muscles, and carbohydrates to replenish your energy sources. Ideally, you should aim to eat within an hour of exercising.

 

If you need additional support for movement, try incorporating one of the following Good Health products into your supplement routine: 

Turmeric Extra Strength
Anti-oxidant in nature, Turmeric has been used to support  liver health, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular system health. Good Health Turmeric Extra Strength is a high strength Curcumin formula for extra total body support, and is 46x more absorbable than standard turmeric for joint comfort. This powerful formula also offers support for the cardiovascular, digestive, and nervous systems.

 

Pannex Joint

The Pannex range is Good Health’s latest innovation. Supporting short and long-term joint comfort, Good Health Pannex Joint is a cutting-edge joint comfort formulation of scientifically researched Levagen®+ and White Willow. Levagen+ is a naturally sourced, highly absorbable form of Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), a fatty acid amide produced naturally in the body in response to stress. Extensively researched, Levagen+ is shown to be effective in supporting joint comfort and functional mobility, while White Willow is traditionally used to provide significant support for joint comfort and stiffness.

 

Pannex Joint Cream

For fast-acting joint support, a topical treatment is your secret weapon. Good Health Pannex Joint Cream is a targeted formulation of capsicum, comfrey and arnica herbs with peppermint, cinnamon, and clove essential oils that work quickly to support joint comfort. Combined with the nutrient benefit support of MSM, Pannex Joint Cream provides a warm and soothing application to support external joint comfort.

 

Joint Active

Good Health Joint Active combines three powerful ingredients into an easy to swallow 1-a-night small capsule. UC-II® is a unique patented form of Type II undenatured collagen, and is the same protein found in healthy cartilage that  works with the immune system to  support the maintenance of healthy joints  and healthy cartilage. Boron is essential for healthy bones and Vitamin D supports optimal cartilage production. Joints receive nutrients through adjoining bones – so healthy bones are key for healthy joints.
