Do you know that when you get sluggish, the toxins in your body build-up and you are prone to feel achier, which often interpreted as depression?

Carolyn Dean, a physician, naturopath, nutritionist, and author, has this to say: “the best, most natural way to pull toxins out of the body is through movement.”

So get active as the benefits will do wonder for your body and mind:

  • Lift depression
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Boost immune system
  • Keep your heart functions better

Some easy suggestions to get active:

  • Walking
  • Climbing staircase
  • Gardening
  • Ride a bicycle
  • Go for a swim

The National Institute of Health encourages us to put in 30 minutes a day of exercise to promote general health, or break it up into two 15 minutes sessions a day of being active.
