How exercise can boost your health, energy, and vitality.

Imagine if there was a magical potion you could take each morning which may aid in:

  • better controlling your appetite
  • boosting your moods
  • improving your sleep
  • maintaining a healthy blood pressure
  • keeping harmful plaque from building up in your arteries
  • reducing inflammation
  • lowering your blood sugar levels
  • strengthening your bones
  • reducing your risk of heart disease stroke, diabetes, dementia, depression, and many cancers
  • boosting your ability to fight infection? 

Seems too good to be true?

The truth is that we already have this magical potion, and best of all, it’s completely free of charge!

The trick?  Regular exercise. 

Hundreds of studies demonstrate that exercise helps you feel better and live longer.

“Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.”

From a very early age, we are already tapping into this amazing activity. 

Exercising regularly, every day if possible, is the single most important thing you can do for your health. Getting your heart rate up and challenging your muscles benefit virtually every system in your body and improves your physical and mental health in myriad ways.

Your body was designed to move. Think of wild animals; they are constantly moving. Yet for some reason, living human beings move the least from all beings. 

Why exactly is exercise so important, and how can simply moving your body affect so much?

Our bodies were created as perfect beings, an expression of His perfection and intelligence. But, we need to give our body what it needs, including fresh and hydrating foods, positive thoughts, and exercise. 

Eliminating toxins and waste is a crucial body function. When the body gets backed up, it can’t work well. Elimination enables it to function optimally, keeping the assets in and sending the negatives out. 

Elimination occurs via the:

  • bowels
  • kidneys
  • lungs
  • skin

A human being has 98 million skin pores (!), which are here to help us eliminate toxins. When we exercise a lot, especially in the heat, the skin pores open up, and sweat leaves our bodies. Sweating through exercising means excessive gas and toxins are leaving the body as vapor through the skin pores. 

Exercise and the Lymphatic System

What is the lymphatic system and why is it such an integral part of your body?

The human body is made up of trillions of cells. They are constantly communicating with each other to help our body perform at its best. One of the most important communication systems is your lymphatic system, a liquid system with six times more fluid than blood.

These lymphatic fluids move around the body, bringing nutrients to and cleaning out each and every cell from toxins and wastes. After collecting all the waste and toxins from the body, the lymphatic fluid brings them to the four elimination locations to be excreted.

If the lymphatic fluid doesn’t move around the body, the toxins pile up. Think about a dirty house, covered in food, with dirty plates and crumbs all over. If it doesn’t get cleaned up, flies and rodents will eventually arrive. The same is with the body. If you don’t eliminate well, your body gets backed up with toxins and wastes, and the next step is health problems. 

How can you move your lymphatic fluid around your body?

Simple; when your body moves, your lymphatic system will move.

By exercising, the lymphatic system gets pumped well. Picture the difference between water flowing and jello running. See how the water flows continuously while the jello is sluggish and sticky?
When a body doesn’t move, the lymphatic system stagnates. It starts getting sluggish and the fast moving, effective fluid turns into creeping slow jello. The end result will be a body with a build up of wastes.

Drinking a lot and exercising regularly makes the lymphatic system move and flow well. Every form of exercise, including running, mobility training, walking, and moving your joints counts! Find an exercise that works for you and start moving. 

How You Can Make Exercising Regularly a Habit

One of the most common objections to exercise is, “but I have no time.” But  really, there are so many times throughout the day to easily stick in some exercise. 

  • Try parking your car at the end of the block and walking those last few steps. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. 
  • Do ten push ups at the end of your stairs whenever you go up or down. 
  • Try some jumping jacks while you’re cooking.
  • Push in some squats while you’re typing.

If you enjoy physical sports, don’t limit yourself to minimal activity. Get your hiking boots out, take a jog around the block, or challenge yourself to scale a mountain near you. Your body will thank you.
