Yes, it can, I promise. Have you ever wondered what the big deal was about when you heard people talk about a “runner’s high”? I didn’t because I played sports at a very young age, so I understood immediately.
Running period is amazing for your mood and your body. The wind across your face, in your hair and the blood pumping through your veins, so awesome. And if you don’t want to run, I get it, walk briskly and keep that heart rate up.
Now, I have some great advice for all of you who might develop joint pain after years of exercise. If you are just starting out, heed my warning: preventative, preventative, preventative. Maintaining your body like your car is imperative to living your best healthy life.
I run my body like a well oiled machine with vitamins and supplements. When I first experienced knee pain, I didn’t take a pain reliever. I instantly researched a holistic remedy to deal with the pain. My solution? Glucosamine HCI 1500mg with MSM 1500mg. And I am here to report that my joint pain slowly disappeared and I have no joint pain to speak of. I live on the 4th floor of my apartment, I take the stairs for free exercise-every day.
I always recommend talking directly with your Dr. about starting any new vitamins or supplements and exercise program. Make an effort to have an honest relationship with your primary Dr. who cares about your well being. My last Dr., Dr. April heard me, listened to me and respected my healthy life-style.
So here are a few quick reminders about exercise. Start as little as walking 20 minutes in the morning and early evening. Realize that you might experience pain because you are moving different muscles and ligaments. Be proactive and preventative when it comes to your body, it’s important. And always consult a Dr. you respect and trust when starting a new work-out plan.
New healthy thoughts will occupy your mind as soon as the endorphins kick in. The more you take time for your mind, body and soul you will ultimately feel better, then look better. God gave us one body to love, to care for and to respect. When you take the time to care for your body properly you will be abundantly blessed by God the Father.
Peace be with you!
