Get Your Blood Flowing

You've probably heard it a thousand times, but that's because it's incredibly true! Exercise is the NUMBER ONE way to quickly and easily improve your mood -- if, and that's a big "if" -- it's done right. Many people who start a new exercise program try to do too much, too quickly and get frustrated. Instead, start slowly and simply. Mornings are the best time to exercise, so begin your day with a few minutes of activity. Shoot for five minutes of exercise at first -- whatever works best for you. Jumping jacks, push-ups, and deep knee bends are great exercises to get your blood flowing. Even more important, you can do them just about anywhere. If possible, do them the second you get out of bed! Keep in mind that if you have a health condition that might make physical activity dangerous, be sure to talk to your doctor before starting any new exercise program. If not, then get started tomorrow!
