Whether you want to get into shape, or improve your health in general, daily exercise is important and necessary but it can still be easy and fun! Below I have put together a list of all the regular exercises I enjoy practicing to help strengthen my body and mind. I like to spread different exercises out throughout the week rather than long sessions on certain days. The most important thing is to find whats right for your body, and don’t push yourself too hard too fast!
Squats – they are such a great booty builder, and by doing daily squats you can help tone up your legs, increase stability and bloodflow. It also makes everyday tasks that little bit easier as they give you more flexibility and looses up the joints.
Meditation – a personal favourite of mine, I do 10 mins a day whenever I can fitit it in mostly in the evening to help wind down! Not only does it provide mental clarity it can increase your energy. For me it helps to reduce anxiety and stress.
Burpees – they can be a little tough to begin with but are great for the body, they help build overall strength, improve posture and composition, and they can even improve your lung and heart capacity. And of cours enot forget they are great for burning calories as they really get your heart going and blood flowing.
Plank Hold – plank position is another one of my personal favs as its easy to do and doesn’t break me out in a sweat lol ! Doing the plank regularly can help reduce back pain and strengthen your back in general. It builds core muscles and improves your balance and posture.
Breathing exercises – getting into the habit of practicing a daily breathing exercise is so beneficial for the body! It helps release up to 70% of toxins from your system. Other benefits include the elevation of mood, release of built up tension and reduces emotional distress, and it can even improve your blood quality!
Glute Bridge – A great one if you spend a lot of time at a desk or suffer from back pains. Doing these daily can strengthen your lower back and can ease lower back pain as it stretches the chest, neck and spine and releases any tensions. It can also help improve blood circulation and allievate stress.
Jumping Jacks – this exercise really gets your heart pumping which is great for your heart, daily blood flow stimulation is reccomended no matter your age! Jumping jacks can also help increase your coordination, boost your mood and help build body muscle.
Positive Affirmations – I highly reccomend this for everyone and anyone! Its a great way to work on your mental health and grow more self accepting! And quite frankly, everyoen can do with lovign themselves a little bit more. It also helps focus your personal intentions, get into a better mental state, and help you feel more confident in yourself.
