Do mood swings count as cardio?😃
Ha! Maybe not, but today’s workout is all about the moodiness that often accompanies the menopause years and how you can take some action to EASE YOUR MOODINESS ☮.
Here are the FAST FACTS: ALL standing, NO jumping, NO equipment | MODERATE day | INCLUDES warm up and cool down
I’m going to throw some science at you🔬: Research has shown that CONSISTENT EXERCISE can help alleviate the moodiness that is often experienced by women of a “certain age.” But the key here is MODERATION. It can be tempting to get out all of your aggression and frustration in an excessively hard workout. Sometimes, though, we pay the price for that decision later.
This workout is a combination of POWER WALKING🚶♀️ and LOW IMPACT CARDIO MOVES, a great way to be kind💙 to yourself and not push too hard. Giving yourself some grace – in the form of a challenging but not over-the-top routine like this one – can help you level out your moods🧘♀️ and learn to enjoy every phase of your life, INCLUDING THIS ONE!
If mood swings are making you feel OUT OF CONTROL, this video is for you! 👌
