5 important reasons to move your body every day

5 important reasons to move your body every day

From improving bonding time with the family to reducing anxiety, there are some pretty impressive benefits of getting active on a regular basis…


We all know we should be active (for around 30 mins a day, FYI), but fitting it in can be tricky when we’re living busy lives and have families to look after. Is it really that important? The answer is yes, it is. So here are five positive things you can do that will fit into your hectic schedule and benefit you and your family – you won’t look back, trust us.

 

  1. You’ll feel better emotionally. You’re too busy and stressed to exercise, so you don’t… and feel even worse as a result (and so the cycle continues). But for the time-strapped among us there’s always something you can do – whether it’s a 15-minute interval training session at home or a walk round the park with the kids. Experts agree that even a short burst of exercise can have a positive effect on stress, anxiety and even depression.

 

  1. It brings the family together. Exercise doesn’t have to mean a solitary jog in the park or a DVD in the living room – it could be a family bike ride or a game of softball in the park. Many experts agree that being active as a family not only improves our health, but increases children’s self-confidence, too. Tennis in the park, anyone?

 

  1. You’ll take pleasure in reaching your goals. It doesn’t matter what your target is – whether it’s clocking up more steps on your pedometer than you managed yesterday, or running round with the kids without stopping – you’ll quickly begin to notice your fitness improving, and enjoy setting bigger and better goals. The whole family can do it together – there’s nothing like a little healthy competition, after all…

  1. Treats won’t be a big deal. When we’re active for at least 30 minutes a day, we’re reducing our risk of major illnesses (such as heart disease, stroke and cancer) by up to 50%, as well as boosting our mood, sleep quality and energy levels. But another bonus is that it helps us stay in shape, meaning treating ourselves to the odd dessert is definitely allowed – hooray! 

 

Hello social life! Not only is getting active a great way to spend time with the family, it’s also a brilliant way to meet new friends and keep in touch with others. From a regular yoga class with an old school friend, to joining a running club, you might be surprised how much your social life blossoms. Already panicking about life getting busier? Your best ally for saving time is Pantene’s Silky Smooth Care Shampoo & Conditioner , it fights roughness and controls frizz in one step, so you will still look (and feel) great on your night out.
