TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF
In the past couple of decades, we’ve learned how exercise can help decrease your chances of developing heart disease and build bone density and strength. Physical activity improves your body’s ability to use oxygen, improves blood flow, increases your brain’s production of endorphins, and even helps take your mind off your worries!
Exercise can also increase your immunity to certain illnesses as it causes changes in antibodies and white blood cells. These days, lots of us are dealing with a level of stress that is unprecedented. Exercise slows down the level of stress hormones. Lower stress hormones may protect against illness.
According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and distract you from daily worries.
Four fitness facilities in Newton have all adopted the strict protocols driven by the COVID-19 crisis. From online check-in, cleaning stations, touch-less check-ins, monitored social distancing, and limited attendance, they’ve made it possible to return to a healthy exercise regime. Some of the centres even offer online routines to work out at home with trainers you’ve come to trust.
