The Importance of Movement

I’m sure you’ve heard someone saying that getting your steps in each day is really important.  But WHY is it important? 

Movement and exercise help your lymphatic system.  Unlike the circulation system, which has a heart to pump blood, the lymphatic system has no pump.  It relies on movement to help complete its work. 

Bottom Line: Moving your body every day is important for fluid regulation, waste product collection, and your immune system.   Aim for 5,000 to 10,000 steps.  Take micro breaks if you sit at a desk for a lot of the day.  Give the dog a long walk.  Park in the far corner of the grocery store lot.  Clean your house and claim it’s part of your exercise for the day!  

Track your steps with your watch, phone, ring, or other device. 

Find a way to make movement a great habit and a fun part of your day. 

If you are a client at VIGEO, part of your gift bag included a dry skin brush.  This can also help with the lymph system!   Use it at night before bed, or before a shower.  Don’t have a skin brush? Get one that has stiff bristles, and your skin will love you for it.

What is the Lymphatic System? The lymphatic system includes the tonsils, spleen, thymus, lymph nodes and lymph vessels. It is an important part of the immune system and helps defend the body against disease. It helps maintain blood pressure and transports hormones, nutrients and waste products. The lymphatic system also monitors the body for germs, foreign substances and abnormal cells, and removes waste products and bacteria from the lymph. Lymph vessels carry waste products, germs and damaged cells away from the body’s tissues to the core.
