Canadians are looking to improve their quality of life by improving their fitness and activity levels. And it’s not hard to see why… Let’s take a look at some of the astounding benefits the science of movement can bring to your life.
Being active can help you fall asleep faster, be more energized during the day and boost concentration.
Staying physically active can reduce stress, alleviate depression symptoms and increase motivation. Just getting moving can motivate you to move more!
Just 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week can lead to a significant decrease in the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and coronary heart disease.
For most people, moving more starts with your feet, and that’s why Dr. Scholl’s® is passionate about the science of biomechanics with over 100 years experience. Helping you to get moving motivates us to create products that help you manage pain, discomfort and fatigue, right at the source, so you can keep moving with ease and joy.
With over one million pounds of total force accumulated by the foot of an average adult, it’s not surprising your feet can hurt at the end of the day, and if your feet hurt, you move less.
Your feet have 50 bones, 200 muscles and tendons, 60 joints and more than 7,200 nerve endings, so it’s easy to see how pain in the feet can connect to other parts of the body.
Your feet are the support for your whole body. If your weight is distributed poorly, just standing on your feet without proper support can put your body out of alignment.
