Fitness Tips:

The most recent federal guidelines for adults recommend at least 2½ hours of moderate-intensity physical activity (e.g. brisk walking) each week, 1¼ hours of vigorous-intensity activity (such as jogging or swimming laps), or a combination two of them.

If you have had an exercise program already, keep up the good work. If not, here are the tips to get you started.
Jog, walk, cycle, or dance three to five times a week for 30 minutes.

Set small daily goals and aim for daily consistency rather than perfect workouts. It’s better to walk every day for 15-20 minutes than to wait until the weekend for a three-hour fitness marathon. Lots of scientific data suggest that frequency is the most important.

Find forms of exercise that are fun or enjoyable. Many people find it’s more fun to exercise while listening to something they enjoy.
Also, It’s often easier to stick to your exercise routine when you have to stay committed to a friend, partner, or colleague. Be patient when you start a new exercise program.
It requires a lot of work and patience, but exercising brings so many health benefits, that it’s worth it!De fysiske fordele ved motion er veldokumenterede, og lægerne opmuntrer os altid til at være fysisk aktive.

Øvelse og træning anses for afgørende for at bevare mental skarphed, og det kan reducere stress. Undersøgelser viser, at fysisk aktivitet er meget effektivt til at reducere træthed, hvilket øger den overordnede kognitive funktion. Dette kan være særligt nyttigt, når stress har udtømt din energi eller koncentrationsevne.

Vinterfamilieaktiviteter

Om vinteren i ferierne har du sikkert mere fritid til at være sammen med dine kære. Børn er også på vinterferie. Det ville være bedst, hvis du kunne lave noget sundt og sjovt sammen med dem.

Vintersport og øvelser i det fri er gode til at genskabe energi. Vinteren er også en sæson, hvor vi kan få uønskede kalorier, fordi vi ikke bruger nok tid udendørs, og vi kan komme ud af form på den konto.
