We are officially out of the Mercury Retrograde & man oh man am I feeling alive again! I swear, I felt like a straight up zombie for the past two weeks!! Did anyone else get hit hard?
Anyways, lately I have been really focusing on listening to my body. For the last four months, I have been making little changes to my lifestyle to help my body heal, internally. I was tired of feeling tired, fatigued, achy & tight. I was starting to look really puffy and I felt inflamed all of the time. My gut hated me, my body hated me and my brain was starting to respond to all of the signals in my body that were screaming HELP!
I’ve been making simple changes to my lifestyle to help me reduce the inflammation in my body, repair my gut, and restore my happiness.
One simple change is to play more outside. AKA exercise like kids play. Sounds super weird, right? But, think about it! When kids play outside, they are running, relaxing, talking, giggling, and then up they go and they are running again! This is what we call interval training: working out intensely for one minute and then resting for the next minute.
Studies have shown that interval training feels best and works best to keep us in shape. You’ll actually burn more calories than those long distance runs or intense everyday gym sessions. Our bodies were not built to workout intensely for an expedited amount of time, without rest. We were built to chase down prey and then stop to rest.
Alright, I’m going to give you my little tip for a major natural antidepressant. Working out releases endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. (duh!) Sunshine gives you vitamin D, which is also so important for brain function – mood, and energy level. So when you do both at once, hello natural antidepressant!! Working out outdoors has been so helpful to not only my mood, but to my body as well. It is so simple!
You don’t need any equipment or a personal trainer to workout outside. I have created an outdoor workout that you can do anywhere at anytime!
Let me tell you, I was sore after this workout! Ask Trevor… he had to hear about it the next day! hehe
TIP: Make sure you rest in between each set!
