Exercises

Here at Open Space Healing, we are advocates of daily exercise. We firmly believe everyone should make time for exercise every day – no excuses! Sure, you are active enough as you do yard work and house cleaning. Does that mean you do not have to exercise? While staying on your feet is better than having a sedentary lifestyle, you should still make an effort to carve out time to dedicate to moving your body intentionally throughout your life.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends 150 minutes of moderate exercises or 75 minutes of vigorous routines weekly. If you’re an absolute beginner, the types of routines out there may easily confuse you. How can you fit all of those exercises into your daily routine and which ones should you be doing? The answer is, you don’t have to. Here’s a blog post where you can get started by performing specific functional movement patterns to help you live a longer and healthier life.

Most people know that exercising and eating healthy go hand in hand to achieve longevity. Others turn to exercise to help them lose weight. But did you know that exercising can help ease certain aches in your body, as well? If you’re suffering from neck pain, this blog post provides details on how you can do specific exercises to support your neck.

Stay tuned for more exercise information and tips on our blog.
