Spring time, sport time!

Did you gain a few pounds during the winter? We all did!

The refreshing spring diet is an important part of our life, which is worth not to miss, but do not forget, diet is never enough! To get in a good shape you have to start exercising! It will not only make you feel better in your skin, but is also refreshing for your mind, helps to erase stress.

If this is not enough, here is a list of some benefits of exercising:
• reduces risk of heart disease
• reduces risk of high blood pressure
• decreases resting heart rate (so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard)
• increases bone density
• reduces risk of osteoporosis
• improves strength and stamina
• increases co-ordination and balance (especially important for older adults)
• improves flexibility
• improves respiration
• improves circulation
• helps to prevent constipation

And what, if you do not have time at all? Do not give up! It is also helpful if you move just a little bit more. There are some tricks you can build in even in your tight daily plans.
• Take the stairs instead of lifts or elevators.
• If you work in a large office, walk to talk to your colleagues, rather than picking up the phone.
• If you use buses, get off a stop or two earlier and walk.
• Don’t worry about finding a car park next to the supermarket or shop entrance. By the time you have found a close park you could have walked from a further, empty and less stressful space!
• For small amounts of shopping or other errands use a bicycle instead of the car, saving you money and the hassle of finding a park. If you live in a town, you will probably save time and if you live in the country you can enjoy the countryside.
• If you have a cordless phone, walk and talk.
