imconfident

I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

However exercise has so many benefits for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.  Exercise:

  • controls weight by burning calories
  • helps prevent or manage health conditions and diseases
  • gives energy and helps build endurance
  • boosts your mood and helps you feel better about yourself
  • builds confidence and increases esteem
  • helps you sleep better
  • has a positive effect on your sex life
  • can be enjoyable, especially if you exercise with family or friends

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to have good exercise.  You don’t need special equipment and you don’t need to go to a gym.  Walking is an excellent way to exercise and it doesn’t cost anything.  Get together with some friends and take a nature walk or join a walking club.

Try to exercise for about 30 minutes a day if possible.   Always check with your doctor if you have any health concerns.

Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.  ~Carol Welch
