I know you may not feel like it, but the best thing you can do for your body (and your mind) post-40 is to move! I’m not talking about going online and searching for someone’s exercise video to do or setting up lots of equipment to do a strength workout – it’s much, much easier than that.
The best ways to move your body (especially when you just don’t feel like it) are simply:
Walking up and down the stairs
Walking outside in the fresh air
It doesn’t have to be for very long at all and is great for your joints. If I feel stuck in a rut or am procrastinating, I get outside, sometimes just for a quick walk around the block. My brain fog lifts, my hips feel less tight and I “re-set”. After 40, we have to be careful not to sit down for hours at a time – a daily walk is the ideal antidote for work stress and overall mental health.
If you can add in a few stretches at the end of the walk then that’s even better!
