A vital component of health is physical activity, but when we are not feeling well even getting up for a glass of water can seem to be an unsurmountable challenge. Our topic this week is “Move It” and ways exercise no matter what phase of disease that you are experiencing. Marianne discusses exercise and some of the science behind why it is so important.
“Physical activity is going to improve your physical function, decrease fatigue, and improve your quality of life.”– Marianne Matzo, PhD, FAAN
Also, if you didn’t catch it…“Put those sneakers on – slippers are TRIP MACHINES!”
We have an interview with Jackie Solimini, a wellness counselor, trainer, health educator, and whole foods advocate. She is a two-time Amazon best-selling author on the topics of happiness and friendship. Jackie wants people to know that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.
