ACT  🇮🇪 Irish Health Promotion New Blog Post ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

Suggestions of strength or resistance training are often met with a deep sigh 😔 as many find moving heavy objects to be quite boring and monotonous (I don’t enjoy it that much) 😴
__________
However, if you can try and fit in three 45-60 minute sessions a week, there is ample evidence to show that this may have a host of benefits!
________
🏋️‍♀️Regular resistance training has been linked to reduce depressive symptoms especially in adults
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🏋️‍♂️Increasing lean tissue, will increase your resting metabolic rate (RMR) which will result in more calories being burned throughout the day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🏋️‍♂️Improved range of motion and functionality had been observed as a direct result of increased strength ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🏋️‍♂️Enhanced glucose uptake by muscle cells is a result of attenuated insulin resistance in adults
___________
If you are not a big fan of that type of exercise try: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣Adding in some fun exercises and keeping the workouts varied 📈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣Keep the workouts short (<60mins) ⏱
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣Plan your workouts (Download an app, check out some fitness pages) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4️⃣Start small, light and easy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5️⃣Accept that you may not enjoy the session, but enjoy the fact that you are resilient and you will get through it! 💪
_______
Hope these tips help! 😀
_______
Don’t be discourage by lack of ability or strength, it will come! It’s all about the journey, not the destination.

Should the EU Declare Obesity A Disease? 🤔
__________
This topic is currently subject to increasing debate and discussion, due to the growing debilitative health consequences being observed across the EU 😕🍔🍕
________
Therefore, let’s have our own discussion around the supporting and opposing views towards EU declaring Obesity as a Disease. 🗣
_________
🔹Does it fit the parameters of a disease? 🔹In what ways could it impact our healthcare system? 🔹Would it theoretically improve or further degrade the current social stigmas/acceptance towards obesity? 🔹Would it aid or impair the current efforts, both state and private, working to tackle the current obesity epidemic?
