Hey, Lifebabblers! Let's babble
about one of my greatest passions in life - exercise.
We've all heard about how exercise affects your body,
but how does it work on your mind and feelings?
Let's find out.
Exercising can keep energy levels up, which boosts brainpower,
which is good for exam time.
It can make you feel positive and more confident too.
It's good for your social life.
I've met loads of new people at my Muay Thai boxing class.
It helps us get out and about.
Exercise helps declutter my brain.
I can forget about my problems for a while
and then be better prepared to deal with them.
Exercise makes you feel better.
Your brain releases endorphins,
chemicals that can trigger a positive feeling, in the body.
The same thing even happens when you laugh.
I like going out jogging with my brother
and I've been doing it for about a month.
I like where we go down hills and up hills.
Jogging makes me full of energy.
Exercise doesn't always have to be super-sporty,
cost loads of money or be competitive
and we can all come up with some creative excuses
if we're having trouble getting motivated.
I'm washing my hair. I can't find a window in my schedule.
I have to keep my guinea pig company.
I find the best way to get motivated is to have a goal.
I'm just prepping my equipment.
There are lots of things you can do to stay active and keep fit
that are always good fun, like if the weather's bad,
you could dance to your favourite tunes.
Pamper your pet. Do it together!
Or just do it yourself and even chores can help you keep active.
OK, so I didn't say they were all going to be glam.
Go on and try new things.
You'll soon find an exercise that you enjoy.
The secret is to make it fun for you.
I know I don't do enough exercise
and know I should probably do more, but I'm not a big fan.
I'm sort of fit and do dance classes,
which I like especially jazz and you can jump about.
One time, I over-exercised for six days in a row
and it made me feel really tired and the next week,
it just made me not exercise at all.
I've always exercised a bit, but sometimes I've pushed myself
too hard, too often, which actually led to injuries.
When I used to over-exercise,
I used to feel really weak and dizzy and I couldn't breathe
and it was horrible. So, ever since then,
I've started to balance it out so I never feel like that again.
When I stopped playing football at school,
I started getting really unhealthy.
I was tired all the time and even walking up
a set of stairs would make me feel exhausted.
I've been in a workout routine for a few years now
so I know how best to get the exercise I need
without straining my body and hurting myself.
It's really important you find the right kind of exercise
for you and make sure you get a good balance.
When you're exercising, listen to your body.
Try not to overdo it so you don't injure yourself.
With the right balance, exercise is a great way to improve your health
and feel good about yourself and, remember,
rest is a really important part of a good routine
so don't let guilt creep in when you're not exercising.
Start a habit that could last a lifetime,
that gets you outside and, most of all, have fun!
I love to exercise and I love to ski.
I like to go fast and I like to do little turns.
Sometimes, I fall and people help me to get back up
and I just do it again.
Exercise makes me feel like I have so much energy,
I could take on the world.
Exercise makes me feel...ENERGISED!
Exercising makes me feel really happy and healthy,
like I've got loads of energy.
That's all for this Lifebabble.
