Engage in physical activity

Stay fit and ensure that you are following an adequate exercise programme. Exercise not only releases feel-good hormones (known as endorphins), but offers many other benefits too. It helps us to manage our weight more effectively, stay flexible and improve our blood circulation too!

Be sure to dress suitably when engaging in exercise. This helps to prevent possible injury. Stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
