Katy's Tip of the Week: The Importance of Moving

Young Joggers

We hear all the time how getting your nutrition dialed in can help you feel your best. While it’s a big piece of the puzzle, we can’t ignore moving our bodies too. You don’t have to rush out and sign up for a 5k or anything crazy. Start small! Here are some tips on getting started:

Take a walk around the block before breakfast or after dinner. After doing this a few times, try taking two loops around the block. Then see if you can work up to a half an hour. Explore your neighborhood!

Recruit a friend. There’s no better time to catch up with a friend than out on a walk. See if you can make it a weekly event.

If you’re stuck at a desk all day, set an alarm to remind you to get up and move! Even if it’s just a quick walk around the office or parking lot, your body will thank you for it. Start off doing this once a day and work up to once an hour if you can.

Find a bike sharing program (like Hubway) and reconnect with the joy you felt as a child on a bicycle. Most bike shops will also rent bikes, too.
