The Many Wonders of Pilates

One of the reasons why most of us grow tiresome as we get older is because we invest lesser time in focusing on our bodies. We’re told that it’s just age that wears us down but unless you’re middle aged, you don’t get to use that excuse; your body is in its prime up till the age of 35 and even beyond that if you’re healthy so if you’re in your 20s and starting to feel like you’re tired all the time then obviously, something’s wrong.

The real problem is that we fail to prioritise our lives around this point; we’re overwhelmed by all that we have to do to an extent that we convince ourselves that we need to put our health second. At the end of the day, if you don’t look after your body well enough, you’re to blame for your own lack of energy. Fortunately for you, all hope is not lost yet; there are so many things you can do to restore your energy and make your life easier again.

First and foremost, you need to eat right and drink a lot of water. Then, you need to make sure that you receive 6-8 hours of sleep every night. After you’ve fixed your eating and sleeping habits, you can get to what will really benefit you – pilates.

Pilates are no weight body stretching exercises somewhere between calisthenics and yoga that will help you strengthen up your core, your joints and enhance your bodily balance, coordination and blood circulation. Just after a few weeks with a Stott Pilates instructor, you’ll find yourself performing better at sports, walking with more energy and correct posture and you’ll be more mindful of your movements.
