    Exercise is My Coffee

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | May 30th, 2022

    Exercise is My Coffee

    Many people are surprised to know that I do not drink coffee. They often ask me how do you stay awake in the morning. I tell them exercise is my tonic. Exercise is my coffee. If I exercise in the morning, even for 10 minutes, it gives me that energy boost that coffee probably gives most people.

    May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. It allows us to raise awareness about the benefits of physical activity. According to the CDC, physical activity can make daily life better.

    Physical activity:

    • Improves mood, focus, and sleep
    • Help you feel more energized, calm, and confident
    • Makes it easier to do everyday activities, like carrying groceries and playing with kids

    The recommendations are:

    • At least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity. This includes any exercise that gets the heart beating faster.
    • At least two days a week of muscle-strengthening activity. These are activities that make the muscles work harder than usual.

    There is the Move Your Way campaign to get everyone motivated to move. Do what you love to make sure that you follow the recommendations. Click here to get information on what works well for you. Click here to create an activity plan to get you started.

    FYI – President Joseph Biden has proclaimed Memorial Day, May 30, 2022, as a day of prayer for permanent peace and has designated 11:00 AM local time when people might unite in prayer and reflection. National Moment of Remembrance will take place at 3:00 PM local time.  Please pause and honor those that have made the ultimate sacrifice to maintain our freedom.

    When we unite in prayer and reflection, let us also pause to honor the memories of those innocent lives lost in Buffalo, Laguna, and Uvalde.
