You’d be surprised at how much walking can affect health! I try to go on a walk or run outside every day. Not just for my health, but my mood and energy as well.

  • 2 MINUTES: activates genes responsible for metabolizing fat and carbohydrates, and activates anti-inflammatory signals.
  • 10 MINUTES: increases creative thinking and creative problem-solving by 60%.
  • 15 MINUTES: significantly lowers blood sugar levels and reduces diabetes risk.
  • 30 MINUTES: relieves symptoms of depression as effectively as prescription drugs, and reduces risk of stroke by 30%.
  • 1 HOUR: reduces inflammation and cell damage in older adults.

Make it priority to get outside every day. You’ll never regret a work out or healthy eating.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. -Proverbs 17:22

Let’s become confident in physically training our glorious bodies that the good Lord has given us. Who’s in? I know I am!

Confidence in exercising starts when we successfully achieve a daily work-out routine. 20-30 minutes a day of walking, biking, yoga, or strength training is a great way to start! Confidence in our bodies can come when we become victorious in sticking with the decision we made to workout. We can do this!

It is Gods will for us to have physically strong, healthy bodies.

I invite you to proclaim & declare this over yourself daily until you become it: “The more confident I grow in my ability to be physically active, the more courageous I will become to try new things with my glorious body and mind.”

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14
