Exercise – Start slow and incrementally
Like all parts of the Big Five, small changes in your exercise routine can lead to large changes in your physical, mental, and emotional health
If you are sedentary, talk with your doctor about any suggestions to exercise they have or any limitations
Walking, biking or their indoor equivalents is the easiest place to start
Start small – give yourself easy goals
If you already have an exercise routine, look for ways to changing it up and incrementally improving your performance
Exercise – multiple benefits
Our bodies were designed to move
Physically, all our systems work better when we get regular exercise
Mentally, our balance, concentration, and many other brain functions are improved with regular movement
Emotionally, the regular movement stimulates the generation of hormones and neurotransmitters that help us feel better and more engaged in life

The body is stimulated by change
A mix of cardio and resistance exercise is best
