4961?

4961?

You are probably wondering why I have written 4961 ?

Well, this is the average number of steps people do in a day.

And it just so happens that research shows that people who did less than 5469

Are more likely to suffer from low mood and depression.

What does this mean?

Well, your brain rewards you for MOVING…

Not before you do it.

Only after.

I mean I’d be lying if I said I was always excited to exercise.

I love having exercised (aka the feeling when I have finished)

The endorphins flooding my brain

The sense of achievement 

All occur instantly. 

Then it is a case of you putting your attention on where you’ll be 5 years from now if you keep building on where you are right now.

Be it your independence 

Bone density

Blood sugar levels

Running around with the kids / grandchildren 

Making everyday tasks easier.

Risk of disease..

I could go on..

There are only so many times in our lives that we can say ‘tomorrow’ …

And just like this research indicates…

Small habits can make a big difference.
