A healthy digestive system is the key to overall health, and participating in regular exercise will help improve digestion and elimination.
Different types of exercise can play different roles in the body. While cardiovascular exercise strengthens the muscles of the abdomen and stimulates the intestinal muscles to move contents through the digestive system, extreme exercise like running can actually cause negative effects on the body.
So, to help support Digestion, choose light to moderate exercise that increases heart rate and breathing, which will also help produce more efficient bowel movements.
Today's challenge - if you have the option, why not take the stairs up and down a few times today instead of the elevator or park the car extra far away from the store? Every little step counts - literally :)
