If you are in your 40s or 50s + (have aches/pains?)

If you are in your 40s or 50s there’s a good chance that you have some aches and pains.

Some aches and pains are constant, others regularly come and go.

Commonly, women think “I have to feel better before I can move,” but what really needs to happen is that you need to move before you will feel better.

Think of movement as nourishment.

Blood and lymph move throughout the body bringing energy to the cells and moving waste products away and eventually out of the body.

Joints require movement to stay lubricated and healthy.

Try moving small – it doesn’t have to be big.

Move more often.

Move in different environments – in the woods, on the beach.

Move in different ways. If you normally carry a bag along side your body, try holding a package in your arms in front of your body, that sort of thing.

Don’t wait until you feel better to move, move to feel better.
