And if you can’t go for an actual walk … just go outside and sit for a few minutes. Here are a few reasons why this can help cut stress: 1. It removes you from the stressful environment. (SO important!) This helps

Since most people use the holidays as an excuse to not exercise, I’m here to remind you of two incredible benefits that exercise gives you. Even in December. Especially in December! Benefit #1: Better Health People who exercise regularly are healthier and live longer. Not only does exercise help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, it also helps lower bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure, while improving the amount of good cholesterol in your body. Additionally, exercise strengthens your bones and muscles, lowers your risk of cancer, decreases stress, helps you battle depression, and even improves your sex life. Benefit #2: Confidence People who exercise regularly are more confident and live happier. It’s important to be confident in who you are, no matter your size or shape. But make no mistake about it – regular exercise WILL boost your confidence and you WILL feel happier. This is from the magical combination of feel-good hormones that come from the physical and
