Rest is good for the body, but if we are being honest, a lot of us have become couch potatoes in the name of resting. Truthfully, there is a thin line between what we call resting and a sedentary lifestyle. But our bodies are not meant to decide for us what to do with them, instead, it should be the other way round. We are in the best position to take care of our bodies, and today we are going to look at some simple exercises to combat a sedentary lifestyle and improve activeness.


But first, why is a sedentary lifestyle detrimental to our bodies?

According to National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPH), not getting enough physical activity can lead to heart disease, raise a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, or increase the risk of many cancers, including cancers of the breast, colon, and uterus. Also note that living a sedentary lifestyle can cause you to burn a few calories less than your body requires, leading to weight gain. You can also lose muscle strength due to not using your muscles enough. Poor blood circulation, weak bones, and not-so-strong immune systems are also some other downsides of being inactive physically.  

Now, this is not to scare you, but as much as we always keep it positive on this end, we need to keep it real as well. We need our bodies in the right shape to be able to function in business, family, careers, etc. and as such we have to wage war against physical inactivity. As we already know, the disadvantages of a sedentary lifestyle include health risks as we have mentioned earlier and that means that getting it fixed promises us a healthier lifestyle.

However, creating a new normal is going to require some conscious effort. If you have a daily routine of moving less and sitting or lying more, try to cultivate the habit of taking a walk. The goal is to transition from immobile to mobile, so get up and walk. You can walk around your house or down the street or from one room to the other, just ensure you get up from that bed or seat and walk. This may sound simple, but it is very easy to forget that you need to walk so, set timers to remind you to walk –  to get groceries or back from the movies. You can take a walk with friends, walk your dog, or walk alone, but if you work from home and have to sit throughout the day, this is highly recommended.

Likewise, if you spend most of the time in an office with a bit of movement here and there, you might want to use the stairs – if available – rather than an elevator or escalator. Your body needs an adequate amount of movement to stay in shape and as much as you want to live the soft life you have been working for, you cannot afford to be too soft on your body. Another thing to do is to develop a new hobby that would grant you enough room for physical activities such as gardening, swimming, jogging, dancing, or biking.

Lastly, suppose you are finding it difficult to combat your sedentary lifestyle and improve activeness with any of these tips, you can try making yourself accountable to a friend or relative who can keep tabs on you. After all, what are friends for?

I was out from 7.30am till 7.30pm, got maximum exposure to pollen...I started sneezing, sniffing, had itchy eyes. I suffer from Hay fever but I hate taking medication for anything. I would exhaust all natural remedy before I use medication for anything.

By the time I got home my nose was completely blocked. I got in bed feeling sorry for myself and wondering how I would get a good night's sleep tonight.

I then remembered I hadn't taken my #SeedNutrition today. I took them and in less than 2 minutes, my nose became unblocked! I am amazed!!! I am breathing freely.

Our bodies know exactly what to do to get us better when we feed it the right product.

I'm loving my seed nutrition. We are changing lives 1 person at a time.πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ

After having three separate conversations this morning, I have to post this online. We all need to stay healthy!

Many of us use these drugs; Panadol/Paracetamol/Ibuprofen etc. Right? A lot are from the doctor's prescription. 

How many of us have ever opened that leaflet that comes in the pack and read the list of side effects?

Why not? We assume if it's recommended by doctors or bought at a pharmacy or shop, it must be safe?



Do you realize that most medications do not cure anything. They alleviate the symptoms but the side effects of the drugs then cause something else in the body. We then start taking another medication for those new problems, but then we soon discover another health challenge.

Also this is caused by the side effects of that medication. We get a third medication to treat the side effect caused by the second medication which was prescribed to treat the side effect of the first medication which has not cured the issue you went in for in the first place!πŸ™†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ™†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜²πŸ˜²

Can you see this cycle?

When will it end? How will it end? Is this not meant to be the best way to stay alive?

Yet people are walking around with bodies full of toxins as a result of these chemical concoctions. We've been brainwashed to believe they are safe and normal for us to take.πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ™†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ™†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

How can people be asking for side effects of eating NATURAL FOODS like fruits, vegetables, seeds. Yet they do not even read the list of side effects for the medication given to them by their doctor?πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€”πŸ€”

Can you see how our mindsets have been conditioned over the years to never question anything prescribed by a doctor, nurse, or anyone in the medical profession? πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

My people, when it comes to your well-being - your Health & your Wealth, please make sure you are the one at the wheel! Do not let anybody else control your life!πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ
