Complementary Fitness 22 June newsletter

First off, how are you this week and how was last week for you? 

What did you do/achieve?  Anything new?

Well, last week, the weather (again) was mixed with mist, rain and then lovely (well, I mean dry, warm and sunny) from lunchtime on Thursday & Friday.

I had started running again and went short runs every day for about 10 day but, I wasn’t really doing any strength works so then ditched the running and thought instead, I’ll need to replace that ...

Week 14, how did that happen?  How are you and how are you coping?

Like me and some others, are you having good days and not-so-good ones?

According to a study of relatively active people who normally walk around 9,000 steps a day, they were asked to reduce that amount to around 5,000 steps a day and the conclusion was that 88% of people reported symptoms of depression, nearly everyone had less energy, and they reported having more anxiety and stress.  31% also reported a decrease in meaning or satisfaction of life which is really significant.

Exercise:

We know that exercise is great for our mental and physical health and if we can continue to keep ourselves fit and active by doing some indoor workouts during the week, then that’s great, well done.  When we combine that with getting outdoors and regular walking (around 30 minutes a day to reach our daily/weekly targets to keep ourselves active and fit), it’s been shown to reduce risk of heart disease and reduce the risk of stroke by 35%, reduce ...
