The “Take 5” approach to general mental wellness outlines 5 areas to focus on: Connect, Keep Learning, Be Active, Take Notice, and Give. The third area of these 5, “Be Active”, emphasizes movement for your body. Physical activity is a vital part of our overall wellbeing. Whether it’s a taking a walk, gentle stretching, yard work or more strenuous exercise, and whether you do it for one longer period in the day or several shorter periods, it all adds up to make a difference in how you feel and perceive life. Be sure to add intentional movement to your routine every day.
