What is Pilates and how does it work to relieve stress

Pilates is a mind-body fitness system that focuses on flexibility, strength and body alignment. It was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. This form of exercise has grown in popularity over recent decades as it helps people to relieve stress, improve their moods and strengthen their core muscles which can help with back pain. The exercises are done either lying down or sitting up on an exercise mat. A typical session will last between 45 minutes to 60 minutes depending on what modifications you make for your level of fitness and how many exercises you do during each session. 

Pilates is an excellent way to work out while improving your mental health as well as physical health!

How do you know if you’re in pain or just sore from a workout

The first thing to do is tell yourself that you are not in pain, just sore. It’s important to know the difference because if you think it’s pain, then there may be something more going on. You don’t want to ignore your body by telling yourself that everything is fine when it’s not. The most common types of injury for people who workout are strains and sprains. These injuries happen when the ligaments or muscles get stretched too far or twisted without enough force to sustain them (source). While these injuries typically heal within a couple weeks, they can lead to long term problems with chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis (source). 

What are the benefits of a balanced body, as opposed to an imbalanced body

When we think of a balanced body, many people equate it with the perfect physique. This is not so. A balanced body is one that does not have an imbalance in muscle groups and has all bodily organs functioning properly without any hindrance to its efficiency.  The benefits of having a well-balanced body are numerous such as increased energy levels, better sleep quality, reduced fatigue and pain in muscles and joints, improved fitness levels for physical activities like running or playing sports etc., better posture because you can carry your weight evenly on all limbs equally which reduces strain on back and neck muscles etc.
