FIND OUT WHY HAVING A “STRONG CORE” IS LEGIT YOUR BEST FRIEND WHEN ADDING LONGEVITY TO YOUR FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
As firm believers of the phrase “Finding beauty in every age,” we believe that we 40+ plus age women should embrace aging. Instead of feeling ashamed of aging, we should definitely go forward empowered with it. Yet, we also believe that we shouldn’t just “let life happen to us.” There are certain actions we can take in life that will “buy us time,” - longevity in the aspect of beauty and will allow us to experience greater joy when it comes to these life processes.
Here are certain actions to take that, besides the fact that they are healthy for our physical body and overall health, also have an impact on our “Finding beauty in every age” process.
STRENGTHENING OUR CORE
THE CORE is at the center of your body encompassing our abs, hips, back, and chest. Our core stabilizes your body, allowing us to move in any direction as well as having proper balance. A strong core is an invaluable asset. A strong and stable midsection can give you better balance and on the beauty aspect, a better posture. Posture inevitably makes us feel more confident and way more elegant. This in itself, automatically adds beauty to our overall image.
IMPROVED BALANCE AND STABILITY
Core exercises train the muscles in our pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work together. This leads to better balance and stability making daily activities such as walking, running, and sitting much easier. A strong core will consist of muscles that work together to support your body. This will make us less susceptible to injuries, keeping our body aligned and minimizing strain on our muscles and joints.
ELIMINATES BACK PAIN
A body that is aligned and upright will make you less prone to have back pain. A person’s core is at the center of their body which supports your entire body especially the neck and the back. If a core is not strengthened then other structures of your back will have to work harder to support the body. This leads to muscle strains and back pain.
