Health Tip of the Day ~ Signs You Are You Overdoing It at the Gym?

How too Much Exercise can Hurt

To get stronger and faster, you need to push your body. But you also need to rest. Rest is an important part of training. It allows your body to recover for your next workout. When you do not get enough rest, it can lead to poor performance and health problems. Pushing too hard for too long can backfire. Here are some symptoms of too much exercise:

    • Being unable to perform at the same level
    • Needing longer periods of rest
    • Feeling tired
    • Being depressed
    • Having mood swings or irritability
    • Having trouble sleeping
    • Feeling sore muscles or heavy limbs
    • Getting overuse injuries
    • Losing motivation
    • Getting more colds
    • Losing weight
    • Feeling anxiety

If you have been exercising a lot and have any of these symptoms, cut back on exercise or rest completely for 1 or 2 weeks. Often, this is all it takes to recover.If you are still tired after 1 or 2 weeks of rest, see your health care provider. You may need to keep resting or dial back your workouts for a month or longer. Your provider can help you decide how and when it is safe to start exercising again.


Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ 5 Reasons Smiling is Good for You

Smiling is Good for you Physically and Mentally.

Here are 5 of the benefits of smiling:

    1. Reduces stress: Smiling helps to reduce the level of cortisol, a stress hormone, in your body. This can help you feel more relaxed and calm.
    2. Boosts your mood: When you smile, your brain releases endorphins, which are natural feel-good chemicals. This can help improve your mood and make you feel happier.
    3. Strengthens your immune system: Smiling has been shown to increase the production of white blood cells, which can help strengthen your immune system and protect you from illness.
    4. Lowers blood pressure: Smiling can also help to lower your blood pressure, which is good for your overall health.
    5. Improves social interactions: When you smile, you appear more approachable and friendly, which can help improve your social interactions and relationships.

Overall, smiling has many benefits for both your physical and mental health, so try to smile more often!


Poem of the Day ~ The Want of You

The Want of You

Angela Weld Grimke

A hint of gold where the moon will be; 
Through the flocking clouds just a star or two; 
Leaf sounds, soft and wet and hushed, 
And oh! the crying want of you. 


Positive Thought of the Day ~ Jump into the Day

“Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.”

– Leonardo da Vinci

We have a choice each morning we open our eyes. We can choose to jump into the day and give it all we have or we can drag our butts through the day wishing the day away. Healthy people choose the former wishing there were more than 24 hours in the day. These are the folks that find happiness in the challenges and they’re always looking for the next adventure. Here’s hoping you jump into the day and take on your next great adventure.
