Hot Yoga: Listening To Your Body is Self-Care

Exercise is one of the most powerful component when it comes to healthy living. Not only will your body actively give you signals while you are exercising, but it will also let you know when you will rest for a while before continuing your regular workout routine. It is difficult to know when enough is enough and you begin doing more harm than good. Ignoring these signals will cause more injuries. As a rule, listen to your body and let your body rest between exercise sessions. With the heat turned up, Hot Yoga will give you the ability to improve circulation, bringing oxygen into your body and nutrient-rich blood to skin cells.

Your body is smart and if you listen to it, it give you warnings like when you are tired, sore or exhausted. All you have to do is trust your body and follow its signals most of the time. All of which are clues that you need to reduce your current workout routine. Hot yoga offers many benefits as stress reliever, improved strength and flexibility. Turning up the heat will help you burn even more calories. Sweat helps to cool the down the body when it has been overheated. This happens during strenuous activity. Regardless of the room temperature, Hot Yoga provides relaxation of the mind and improves physical fitness.

A heated environment will make the practice of yoga more challenging. Stretching after you warm up your muscles is safer than stretching cold muscles. It follows that in a heated room it will make your yoga poses easier and more effective. If you truly listen to your body it wants to move and be strong and fit. Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself because it produces positive feelings and boosts your confidence and self-esteem. Also it reminds yourself that you and your needs are important too. Know your worth!

HOT YOGA: Finding Calm In Your Mental State

Hot yoga is a very challenging yet rewarding physical exercise as it challenges both physical and mental strength. Practicing Hot yoga will put you in a different mental place given the sport’s focus on meditation.

In calming your mental state, Hot Yoga silences unhealthy noise. We all tend to wander around with unhealthy noise in our mental background, Hot Yoga helps us identify those noises and puts on a path to silence them. The more you practice Hot Yoga, the more you build an acceptance of things that you can and cannot control. The things that stress you that you simply can’t control are the very types of things that this deep-state sport can help you dismiss.

Hot Yoga is one of those things that you need to experience to have any chance of understanding the deep-rooted benefits. For more information regarding hot yoga, contact Answer is Fitness.

Tips for Staying Healthy While at Home

In Massachusetts we are trying to adhere to the Stay-at-Home order. This means big changes in daily routines including how and where you get your exercise, and what and when you eat.

But we know that healthy habits can affect a person’s risk of getting sick. This is because getting enough physical activity and eating healthy foods can help our bodies work as well as possible. With a bit of creativity, you can find new ways to get plenty of physical activity and eat healthy food even while you’re staying home more.

Exercises you can do at home

It is recommended that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity each week. Moderate activities make you breathe as hard as you would during a brisk walk. Vigorous activities use your large muscle groups and make your heart beat faster, make you breathe faster and deeper, and make you sweat.

Even lower amounts are good for your health and are safe for most people. Besides helping to prevent some health problems, getting some physical activity can be helpful for your sleep, mood, and energy. It’s also important to limit sedentary behaviors.

If you’re working or taking online classes from home:

  • Stand up or walk around while you read and answer emails and other messages on your laptop or phone.
  • During conference calls, stand up and pace, or stay seated and do leg lifts, knee lifts, and toe curls. Keep a weight under your desk for bicep curls. Do standing push-ups against a wall.
  • Take a short walk during lunch, or in place of a coffee break.
  • Set an alarm on your computer or phone to remind you to take an activity break. For example, take a one- or two-minute standing or walking break every hour.

Other ideas to get moving:

  • Take a walk outside if it’s a nice day or walk inside around the house if it isn’t. Walk fast enough to speed up your heart rate and break a sweat.
  • Walk up and down your stairs. Take every other step to give your legs a good workout.
  • Turn on the radio and dance in the house, alone or with your partner.
  • If you don’t have stairs or much open space, you can do jumping jacks, or walk or jog in place. Try to keep moving for at least 10 minutes.
  • Use hand weights or grab an object like a soup can if you’re just starting to exercise, or a jug of water if you’re stronger. Bend at your elbows to curl your hand to shoulder level. Repeat 10 to 12 times, or until you can’t do it anymore.
  • Do squats when cleaning out closets or playing with your children. Be sure to bend with your knees and keep your back straight.
  • If you’re on social media or can search the internet, check for live-streaming exercise sessions or activity challenges that you can participate in.

Make TV time active time:

  • Stand up and fold laundry while you watch.
  • Do a few simple exercises like jumping jacks or walking in place, or by doing stretches in front of the screen.
  • Make a new rule: No sitting during commercials.

Make household chores count:

  • Mop or vacuum fast enough to get your heart pumping. A 150–pound person can burn about 150 calories an hour this way.
  • Have young children or pets at home? Playing with them can burn more than 200 calories per hour.
  • Yard work and gardening are also ways to burn calories and strengthen your arm, leg, and back muscles. Pushing a lawn mower, raking leaves, shoveling, and other outdoor chores can be an effective workout.
  • Use stay-at-home time for projects you may have been putting off. Cleaning out the garage or attic is another way to be productive and active at the same time.

How to eat healthy at home

Eat a variety of vegetables and fruits, choosing breads, pastas, and cereals made from whole grains instead of refined grains, and brown rice instead of white. Eat less processed meat, less red meat, and fewer sweets, and drink less alcohol.

Eating healthy meals at home helps you cut down on fat, salt, and sugar – and saves money too. If you’re home from work or eating out less these days, consider it an opportunity to try new, healthier ways of cooking and eating.

Stay healthy and well. We'll see you soon at Answer is Fitness in Canton, MA!
