Following a regular exercise routine is great, but it's not enough if you spend the rest of your day sitting. “It has been proven that people who sit longer, die sooner. There are tons of studies that link sedentary lifestyles to life-threatening health issues, from obesity and chronic pain to cancer and infertility,” says Dr. Gregory Soltanoff, a chiropractor and co-creator of The Movement software program. An active lifestyle can help prevent the onset of chronic, debilitating, and expensive health problems, he says.
Take advantage of every opportunity to move more (beyond your workouts). Explore new cities by foot or bike on vacation, play volleyball or Frisbee at the beach instead of just soaking up sun, or use the longer daylight hours to go for an after-dinner stroll. Summer is the perfect time to add more movement to your daily routine—and continue into the fall!
Treat yourself to better health and happiness. You deserve it!
