Love Your Gut: MOVE!
Sitting down and being still for long periods of time not only affects your mood, your energy level and your weight in a negative way, but it also has a negative effect on your digestion. If you struggle with digestive distress in any way, then keep reading…
It’s time to move your body! Exercise helps to stimulate intestinal contractility and speeds up your digestion process. This means getting up and moving your body (even lightly) for a minimum of 15 minutes a day.
For good digestive (and of course, overall) health, try to aim for around 20-30 minutes of light movement such as yoga, walking or swimming. These additional movements in the body can help your digestive system to operate more smoothly.
After all, a happy tummy is a happy YOU!
