Everything we do that is good for our bones is good for all our body.

We know that it is important to exercise, particularly weight bearing and strength exercises. The easiest way to incorporate weight bearing exercises is to walk but dancing is a fun way.

Studies have shown that dancing regularly not only improves our bone strength but is also linked to a reduction in the likelihood of developing dementia. So turn the music on and start dancing.

Forming new habits: Journaling

As with any new habit, it can take practice to regularly journal. But there are so many benefits to journaling that it is worth making time to form this habit.

My top 5 benefits of journaling are:

  • It enhances overall wellbeing
  • It improves our mood
  • It reduces stress
  • It boosts our brain power
  • It can improve sleep quality

Forming new habits

A lot of people don’t like change, but changing your habits can be easier than you might think. Instead of thinking about what you have to give up, which just leaves you feeling deprived, think about your new habit as being what you get to have.

For example, if you’re trying to lose weight so that you fit into your Christmas party dress think about your new habit as eating more vegetables, drinking more water, and joining that women’s walking group that you’ve been meaning to try.

I know that I need to add more movement into my week, so I’m definitely joining that walking group. I’ll let you know how I get on.
