Getting into the habit of daily movement is beneficial for your health. But what exactly is defined as daily movement, and how can you incorporate it into your routine?

Typically, it can be described as 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, each day. You may be doing this already without even realising it, as it includes walking, cycling and gardening!

The Benefits of Daily Movement

Leading an active lifestyle has many benefits for overall well-being, including your mental health. Physical activity, such as walking or jogging has an immediate effect on reducing your blood pressure, keeping it at a lower level for several hours afterwards.

Exercise will also improve your cardiorespiratory health, lowering your risk of heart disease and strokes.

Your immune system is strengthened by daily movement, and could potentially prevent minor illnesses such as a cold or flu. Moderate-intensity exercise can help with depression and anxiety, too.

You may find you sleep better and have improved brain cognition. And let’s not forget weight loss and reduced body fat levels!

Adding Daily Movement to Your Life

It’s not necessary to hit the gym every day and do an intense workout to get your quota of physical activity. Walk for 30 minutes at a moderate pace, enough to raise your heart rate but not leave you out of breath.

Housework can be surprisingly physical, try adding some music in the background and dance as you dust! Cycling and swimming are highly recommended for improving muscular strength and fitness.

Why not commit to one month of daily movement? Add it to your bucket list, and see what a difference it makes to your health! Always consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
