Should I exercise At Home?
Exercise causes a change in antibodies and white blood cells. White blood cells are responsible for maintaining our bodies’ immune systems and fighting disease. The rise in body temperature during exercise is also proven to kill bacteria and help to flush out the lungs. Workouts are also proven to slow down the release of stress hormones; these hormones can compromise the immune system.
Doctors are currently encouraging us all to stay active! Just 30 minutes of activity is not only beneficial to the physical body but to our mental health as well.
HOME WORKOUT IDEAS
I love a good home workout! In my day to day life, I don’t have the time to get to a gym or hop on the treadmill. Luckily, there are an incredible amount of resources out there for home exercise. All you need is a yoga mat or towel, a couple dumbbells or heavy cans and internet access!
If you’re working with bare minimum, that’s okay too! There are plenty of no equipment necessary workouts that are just as effective.
