Exercise and fitness are an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only is exercise important for a healthy body, it also creates a happy mind. Everyone has heard of a runners high, but I personally think it goes way beyond that. Working out is empowering, it gives you confidence. When you are strong you feel good about yourself and your body feels good as well!!
I don’t usually go to the gym because I do most of my exercise in the dojang, training in taekwondo. I also do some yoga at home and I enjoy hiking with my husband around our house (when it’s not 100 out with a chance of rattlesnakes). The easiest way to incorporate some sort of workout and have any consistency is to find something that you really enjoy for more than the physical benefits. I found a saying once, “fall in love with the process and the results will come.” That is so true!!
To supplement my fitness there are several Young Living products that I like to use. The newest being AminoWise. Here is the description taken directly from their site. “It uses three blends for one powerful result: The Muscle Performance blend aids muscle building and repair, the Recovery blend helps reduce muscle fatigue, and the Hydration Mineral blend replenishes important minerals lost during exercise.” I have been using this supplement for over a month now and it is fantastic!! I’m less sore and I have noticed the difference it has been making in my energy level through my workouts!!
There are also two different products to help with sore muscles, deep relief and Ortho Sport. The deep relief is a roller ball that can be used directly on muscles that have intense discomfort. The Ortho Sport is a massage oil that can be used on a large area and massaged in. Both of these products contain oils that cool and sooth the skin and muscles without any unwanted chemicals or the grease slick most products leave on your skin!!
To boost your energy levels at the start of, or during a workout I would recommend using peppermint oil or the En-R-Gee oil blend topically to put an extra pep in your step! I also really like the NingXia Nitro supplement for helping with not just my energy but also my level of focus. Nitro contains ingredients that help with both cognitive and physical fitness.
It’s also really important to make sure you are drinking a lot of water. I put the AminoWise in my water for more intense workouts and I like to use citrus in my water the rest of the time for a flavor boost and for the antioxidant benefits.
