Once I started taking cardio seriously, I've noticed major changes in my body, and the way I feel.

When I run or cycle, it helps me get in the zone, which allows me to challenge myself while remaining calm.

I tend to do 3+ cardio trainings of 30 minutes or more a week.

Our body needs to move, thus I like to move every day, even if it's just a light jog or walking to get groceries.

Cardio is a very effective way to reduce stress, improve your mood and manage your weight.

Try walking more, running, swimming, jump roping, etc.

We all different lifestyles, so try to add cardio trainings according to yours.
