This quick read from Penn Medicine shares tips and the why it's important to Get Up & Move!
Marina Khidekel, from Thrive Global compiled a great list of small ways to stay active while working from home. Check them out below!
Wanted to applaud and share this article (even though it was published in 2017) because it's sharing results from a University of Cambridge (England) study of 10k women and men that found "when people get up and move, even a little, they tend to be happier than when they are still."
Don't let the title scare you. This article is full of reminders and perhaps a few "new to you" ideas on how to maintain your health and peace of mind during this time and beyond.
My favorite reminder, "Be gentle with yourself...." I also like the affirmation you'll feel better when you go outside. I've found that to be very true and try to make sure I get out every day--even if it's to the mailbox and back!
Take care! And here's to getting up & moving!
