At KIND, we know the benefits of movement & making it a part of our every day lives. Movement fuels our energy, enhances our organ health, aids our circulation and balances our sugar levels. It increases our resilience to stress, improves our sleep and enhances our mood which helps with mental health. We also know that fitness can be intimidating & inaccessible so we want to remind people that fitness can be fun! From walking to dancing to jumping to playing your favourite sport - we want to remind people that ANY sort of movement is amazing. That’s why we’ve put together some top tips on how you can incorporate more movement in to your daily routine. Enjoy!
1. spice up your commute
Bike to work once a week to make your routine a bit more interesting by getting some fresh air on 2 wheels.

3. start your day right
Blow off the cobwebs in the morning with a ten-minute stretching routine to get your day off to a great start.
