Moderate movement activities you and your family can do to fight disease together.
Wash your hands. Get some rest. Eat your fruits and vegetables. Sound familiar? We’ve all heard these phrases since we were little. The simple, no-brainer steps to keep you and your family healthy and in action.
One step (no pun intended) not as widely known to fend off sickness is MOVEMENT. Yes, rest is key if you or your kiddos start to feel sick, but movement has many more benefits than just staying fit.
In fact, according to Dr. David C. Nieman, director of the Appalachian State University Human Performance Lab at the North Carolina Research Campus, “People who exercise 30 to 45 minutes a day experience a 40% to 50% reduction in the number of days they get sick.”1 That’s craziness! Just by moving your body you are giving yourself a dose of preventive “medicine”.
How is this so? When you start to move your body, your blood starts circulating at a faster pace which includes your white blood cells (WBC). WBC are the body’s immune system cells that fight off diseases, like strep throat. The more active you are the more disease-fighting power your body has.
Like with anything, you need to keep moderation in mind. Find fun, easy ways to move your body that do not cause too much strain. If an intense, tough workout or activity is a must be sure to allow some time to rest before the next one.
So what are moderate movement activities that you and your family can do to fight disease together?
