But here too: it doesn’t take extreme sports. What is important – especially for psychological well-being – is finding a balance to a great deal of sitting. Healthy exercise combines elements of endurance, strength and mobility. Regular, moderately intense exercise (pulse: 120/130) of about 30 minutes five days a week is already beneficial to one’s health. For more intensive sports units and a more visible effect, 2-3 units per week are sufficient. Strengthening exercises should include all muscle parts of the trunk (especially the back and abdomen) and the arms and legs. During stretching exercises, you should pay particular attention to those muscle areas that usually shorten the fastest: the back muscles of the thighs, calves and chest.
To motivate yourself, you can set up an exercise plan with fixed times and goals. Find a sport that you enjoy, but also try something new more often. Make an appointment with a partner to train in the fresh air and treat yourself to small rewards in between. Have fun!
