Each week there will be two “New” unique exercises accompanied by a healthy tip to help you bring in the New Year with a fresh new outlook.
All exercises can be done with or without weight resistance. Try to add each exercise and tip from the previous week to build an entire NEW routine focused on improving your movement, health and well-being.
Get Adequate Sleep
The value of quality sleep cannot be overestimated. For adults, sleeping at least 7 hours a night will help regenerate your body and stabilize energy levels. Among the many benefits from sleep, it helps you live longer, lowers stress, and sharpens memory. Try getting to bed an hour earlier and reducing screen time right before bed.
