Simple, gentle exercise.
I often feel tired at the end of a long day, and sometimes could snuggle up and fall asleep – but as a mum of two teenage boys I just can’t do that!! Can you imagine!
Therefore I go and do something energetic to get my body moving and my energy flowing again.
I am a runner, so that is a simple and natural exercise for me to go and do – although if it is dark and cold outside it can be really hard to motivate myself at times! But I know the way I will feel when I have finished my run and therefore that is enough motivation for me.
However, if you are not used to exercise, it can be very difficult to get your head round the fact that you will feel more energised after exercising when you are feeling really tired. But honestly it is true!!
Try walking up and down your stairs a few times, to get your heart beating faster, march or jog on the spot or go for a walk if the weather permits – just get yourself moving and you will feel the benefit I promise.
I am a busy mum of two teenage boys, and between them and work I am forever running around. I have always been interested in fitness, and I make sure that exercise features regularly in my life. However many of my friends are not into fitness like me, yet want to be healthy. I want to help people make healthy lifestyle choices which will impact on their fitness, without necessarily feeling the need to throw themselves full force into exercise.
