YOUR BEST HEALTH: EXERCISE
This week we want to talk about achieving and maintaining your best health.
Your health is probably the most important thing you have. Without your health, it’s difficult to enjoy time with friends and family; you may not be able to enjoy your hobbies as you once did and you may even struggle to go away on holiday.
Here at The Forge Clinic, we are committed to helping you find and maintain your best health. Today we’d like to talk about the importance of exercise.
You will hear it over and over again, but exercise is crucial to your health. We encourage patients of all ages to exercise in some way. We find our elderly patients maintain their mobility for much longer if they take gentle daily exercise.
No matter your age or fitness level, find something you enjoy doing. This could be anything from running or joining to gym to hiking or yoga. The important thing is to use your body. Your body was designed to move – so move it!
Exercise will not only keep you fit, healthy and help with preventing weight gain, but it has a positive impact on your mental health – we often feel much happier with ourselves after a workout.
If you haven’t exercised in a while, for whatever reason, book in for a check-up with one of our practitioners. They can give you some guidance on the exercise that may be best for you and advise you on how to avoid injury.
