Exercise: How we move
Do some form of exercise for 20 minutes a day, three days a week and you will feel the difference it makes physically and mentally.
There are so many benefits of moving!*
"Food powers your life. It fuels all bodily processes that enable you to move, think and breathe. There is no aspect of your life that is not influenced by what you eat. Fueling your body with processed food, fast food, sugar, fat and calorie-dense food affects who you are, what you do and your ability to pursue your dreams and aspirations."
