How do you get enough exercise?

A healthy lifestyle is inseparably linked to healthy eating habits and exercise. Lots of exercise. When you are trying to lose weight or want to maintain your physical condition, a healthy dose of daily exercise is very important. This way exercise makes you feel much fitter while the amount of HDL (good) cholesterol in your body gets a boost.

Nevertheless, for many Belgians it remains quite a challenge to exercise sufficiently in one day. We do most of our daily activities while sitting down. Just look at school-age children who spend more than seven hours bravely chained behind a desk or at the staff of an average office who spend hours chained to an office chair. We generally spend too much time sitting down and therefore miss our much needed dose of exercise.

The baby skin is much more sensitive to these ailments because the skin does not yet have a protective acid mantle and because the stratum corneum that protects the skin against bacteria has not yet fully developed. This is only fully developed around the age of four. It is therefore very important to take good care of a baby's skin.
