move, get your blood pumping
In Secret #3 we're talking all about & DOING some exercise! One thing that's extremely important when it comes healing and exercise, is intensity. It's very important to keep your workout intensity low or at least moderate, and slowly work your way to more intense workouts.
Everyone is different and we all have different backgrounds & exercise tolerances. For some of you, you might already have daily workouts in place, and other may have never really workout besides mandatory PE classes in school!
I can't stress enough how important it is to exercise at the RIGHT intensity for your body. For some of you this might mean that you actually need to put that ego aside and take a step back from high intensity exercise. While others might need to step it up a notch. Moving your body is extremely important, but taking it too far can cause massive stress on your body and lead you worse off than when you started.
It's time to make a mindset shift to exercising for healing,and not for physical aesthetic appeal!
If you have acne, then you have leaky gut. At this point your gut is probably very damaged and leaky, and your body is carrying a lot of inflammation. exercising at a low to moderate intensity will reduce inflammation, and aid in circulation which aids in healing.
The best way to moderate your workout intensity is to pay close attention to your workout recovery. How do you feel 20 minutes after your workout? How do you feel 1 hour after your workout? How do you feel 3 hours after your workout? It's okay to still feel tired 20 minutes after a workout, but about an hour after your workout you should feel more energized! If you are still tired 1 hour after your workout, then you should adjust your workout intensity accordingly.
Videos with some specific exercise examples are listed below, but you can find the full list along with the benefits in the ebook! Don't forget to be patient, & give your body time to heal & recover!
