Move Your Body

The importance of moving our bodies daily is Top of my list for vibrant health!

Nutrition and Fitness go hand in hand.

I’ve tried eating a healthy diet and being lazy… the extra nutrition helped but i still didn’t feel my best. I’ve tried exercising a lot.. and eating whatever I wanted (junk, not enough vegetables) and again I did not feel my best!

Now a winning combination and there is no mistake about it, combining great nutrition with daily exercise will make you feel amazing!

Moving our bodies daily is a great help for our lymphatic system, which doesn’t have its own pump, we have to help it out, our movement gets the lymphatic system working, which means carrying the waste through our lymph nodes.

Once the lymph fluid approaches the heart it is returned to circulation and makes its way for further cleansing of toxins by the liver and kidneys. The lymphatic vessels are not connected to the blood circulatory system, and unlike blood which is pumped by the heart, lymph fluid relies on bodily movement and exercise to drive it through the lymphatic system.

Forceful flushing of the system cleanses lymph nodes, contributes to healthy, clear lymph fluid, and boosts the immune system. Stagnant, slow-moving and thick lymph fluid is due to a lethargic, toxic body and weakened immune system.

So this is why we must move!

I love exercise that makes me sweat, as it’s a great cleanse for the body, cleans the pores and helps push those toxins through the skin. However not all movement needs to be hot and sweaty to get our lymph moving.

Here are my favourite ways to move daily:

  • A walk in the fresh air
  • Yoga
  • Sprints
  • Jogging
  • Rebounding
  • Massage
  • Hula Hooping
  • Dancing
  • Gardening
  • Skipping
  • Cycling
  • Crossfit

Benefits you may see from a healthy flowing lymphatic system:

  • Clearer Skin
  • Healthy Glow
  • Stronger Immune System
  • Better Digestion
  • Healthier Circulation
  • Less toxins being absorbed

Not only will your body feel and look better with regular daily movement, it will help your mood too with all the endorphins released whilst and after exercising.

I find exercising daily brings me these benefits :

  • More clarity & Focus
  • Stress Relief
  • Confidence
  • Self esteem
  • Self Love
  • Positive Attitude

Add some movement to you day and reap the benefits 🙂
