It’s Christmas! And what does that mean? A week or two of lounging on the sofa, watching every TV special under the sun while eating and drinking way too much? Not if you want to start the New Year in good health.
We all like to relax over the festive period; and we’re all entitled to indulge, but doing too little over the festive period could set us up for back pain and a host of other health issues. While no one expects you to hit the gym every morning over the holidays, getting a few walks in is a really good idea.
Here our Newcastle under Lyme chiropractor highlights just some of the benefits of walking over the Christmas holidays:
- It can help you to keep those extra holiday pounds off. Remember that unnecessary weight is unnecessary strain on your spine!
- It can help to prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
- It can aid in strengthening your bones and muscles
- It can improve your mood and reduce your stress levels
The more regularly you walk, the greater the benefits. Don’t wait until the New Year to get healthy. After all, poor health won’t wait for you!
