Get Moving for Optimal Health

If you think you need to be a triathlete or CrossFitter to reap the maximum rewards from movement, think again. While high-octane cardio workouts can contribute to overall better health, there are plenty of ways to engage in movement from non-sport activities.

Just Dance

Whether you like to tango or prefer salsa, dancing is one of the best forms of exercise. Dancing does the following:

  • Improves flexibility
  • Reduces stress
  • Diminishes depression
  • Boosts heart health
  • Improves balance
  • Increases energy

Catch Frisbee

This classic circular gliding toy is a familiar fixture on the beach and in backyards. Did you know that catching a Frisbee is excellent exercise? Whether you play with your pooch or a pal, you’ll get cardio benefits from running to catch the Frisbee and increase agility. Like other forms of exercise, catching a Frisbee is a big mood booster as well.

Get Outdoors

Christchurch is an outdoors lover paradise. From biking and hiking to swimming and horseback riding, there are so many fantastic ways to get fit. Simply walking in nature also yields significant health benefits, both mentally and physically. Nature walks improve mood, boost energy, reduce stress and possibly alleviate depression.

Walk or Bike to Work

If you’ve been looking for a way to fit fitness into your busy schedule, walking or biking to work is an awesome way to knock out your daily fitness goal. Whether you’re a pedestrian or a pedaler, you’ll accumulate health benefits while you’ll likely shed some pounds.

Chiropractic care can allow you to move better so you can participate in all of your favourite activities. Is it time for an adjustment?
