Move Well with Ballet Austin
The evidence is clear—physical activity can make you feel better, function better, and sleep better.
Movement is powerful. Moving your body daily is one of the best things you can do for your overall health; it has the power to improve every part of your body…and your brain. It is something you can do for you!
Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. According to the CDC, adults need about 150 minutes of physical activity each week. There are 10,080 minutes in each week. Therefore, less than 2% of your week needs to be allocated to movement. That’s doable!
We are advocates of micromovements; spreading out physical activity throughout the week. Move more and sit less throughout each day. We also believe that if you find an activity you enjoy you will stick with it, will keep moving. Wherever you are in your workout journey, start where you are and let’s move together!
December brings the holiday season, year-end celebrations, and plenty of busyness packed into a few weeks. It’s a wonderful, festive time, but it can also be a rollercoaster for our well-being. Put your well-being on your December “to-do” list and check it twice for a happy and healthy holiday season!
