Dr Rice warns that deliberately exercising during an injury can make the consequences worse. Especially if your body is constantly experiencing unusual pain, you should stop exercising and see your doctor as soon as possible.

According to Dr., if your body aches from the last exercise, you can still do the exercise but to avoid injury, only do light exercises, such as walking instead of running. You can also skip training and rest if the pain is too severe.

Award-winning Pilates instructor and PT Hollie Grant’s workout builds core strength: A fundamental part of exercising safely and reducing your chance of injury

If you’ve ever been to a Pilates class you’ll know the mega-emphasis that’s placed on building a strong core –TBH it’s the foundation of the entire discipline.

Factors that affect depression risk

Dovie Salais

At a Glance

  • Researchers screened more than 100 diverse factors in people’s daily lives for links to depression.
  • The findings suggest that getting enough social support and limiting how much media you use may help prevent depression.

Depression is a common, serious mood disorder. Everyone feels sad or lonely sometimes. But if you have depression, these feelings go on for long periods of time. You may feel hopeless or pessimistic, irritable, or have decreased energy or fatigue. You might stop enjoying your hobbies and normal activities and have difficulty concentrating, remembering things, or making decisions.

Experiencing trauma early in life and having certain genes can put you at higher risk for depression. But there are actions that can help protect against depression, such as eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep and physical activity.
