“Take care of your body-it’s the only place you have to live in”

Okay, for some, movement, or exercise, might not be top of your list right now  but we all know it’s crucial to keeping us healthy and one of the best benefits of working out is the positive feeling you get afterwards. It has been proven that working out releases positive endorphins in the brain which make you feel happier.

So whatever your motivation is to get moving, whether you plan to exercise for general health benefits, to increase your physical fitness or to help maintain or lose weight, the advice from us at Oōplah is to choose something you enjoy.

Whether it is a yoga class, lifting weights or dancing that gives you pleasure, or maybe it’s running, going for a brisk walk or being part of a sports team, if you find it enjoyable, you’re more likely to be motivated and commit to 20-30 mins a day.

Exercise strengthens our muscles and it supports our heart, circulatory and our lymphatic systems. If we think of exercise as celebration of what our body is capable of rather than a punishment for what we eat or drink, we soon find that we begin to enjoy it. It may take awhile but keep going as consistency is key.

Having some extra support whilst exercising certainly helps us, here’s some of the products we use to boost our workouts.
