On October 13, we’ll focus on: Activity 

Activity is the movement of your body and the development of your mind. Exercising both can keep you alert and energized.

Regular physical activity provides the nourishment and oxygen your body needs. It comes with great rewards, such as a healthier life full of energy and vitality. You obtain the best results from your physical activity by incorporating different kinds of training into your workouts.

Regularly including strength training will build your muscles. Aerobic exercises (such as running, cycling and tennis) will strengthen your heart and lungs, and will improve your endurance. Stretching and balance exercises are important too. Regularly exercising in these ways will  improve your health, boost your self-confidence and improve your brain function.

Planned, positive mental activity will help you embrace and enjoy opportunities to learn. It helps keeps the mind open and accepting, as opposed to being closed and judgmental. It increases our capacity to show respect and curiosity for others’ ideas without feeling a need to conform. It also provides confidence when confronted with unfamiliar situations, facts and figures.
