ogaHealthy Habit of the Week: Activity
It is no surprise that research has shown that prolonged sitting is associated with many detrimental changes in our body, including reduced fat metabolism, muscle atrophy, muscle function, and increases our risk of sedentary lifestyle-related diseases. Moving our bodies is a Habit of Health that is not only good for weight loss, but for the rest of our lives!! As the saying goes "Move it or lose it"!

Here are some suggestions for burning extra calories during your day (we call these NEAT points!):

Start Moving your body by the end of the 1st month in weight loss!
Find an activity you like- start with walking!
Teach at least one friend about the benefits of exercise and encourage them to increase their activity and improve their health habits. It's the little positive changes we make every day that have the biggest long-term impact on our health!

Tell a friend: How many of your friends, family, co-workers know about this valuable tip? Sharing and paying this forward has great value. As you know, "To teach is to learn twice". The next time you see someone you care about or have someone ask you why you are eating the way you do, teach them this "Habit of Health". They might want to join you which makes you an "Agent of Change!
