Regain Life Physiotherapy - Marize from Team Sunshine

I'm taking part in the 27ForParkinson's 'Be Active' Challenge to help raise funds for people living with Parkinson's - a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life.

I am one of a team from Regain Life Physiotherapy, working to make movement and fitness a greater part of our normal routine.

For 27 days I will be staying active whether it be walking, running or just moving my body on behalf of the Parkinson's Community. 

Movement helps circulation, strength, balance, coordination, mood and brain function.   How you move can also help your Parkinson's symptoms be less - that's where Parkinson's specific physio comes in - to teach you skills to get the most out of your body, and live your best life.

Will you help me make a difference? Every dollar raised has a lasting impact, so please make a donation to support my challenge.

Together we can make a difference..

Saturday 23rd Oct
The Parkinson's Victoria 27 for Parkinson's Be active challenge is in its final week.

I have been leading a team of Champions from Regain Life Physiotherapy.  We have been learning about discipline, showing up and starting, planning, and reaping the rewards of feeling good, and getting fitter in mind body and spirit.

Our team's fundraising efforts is in a tussle for 3rd place on the leaderboard for teams.

Every dollar raised has a lasting impact,I would be super grateful if you donated to Parkinson's Vic and helped our team reach top 3 status.  (OK I am a little bit competitive..but it is for a good cause;) )

I have been super busy over COVID studying, researching and working on better ways to tackle Parkinson’s without adding more drugs into a PWP’s life.  The results I am getting are quite ground breaking so please get in touch if you want to find out more.

More is possible, working together,

One day down...

Saturday 2nd Oct
Yesterday had more purpose and focus ...a greater sense of awareness that I need to be active and move more in my day.

Goals achieved and feeling great.  Now let's do it again today!

I started with aerobics video 1 as it was raining...planning a walk later in the day and some Qi gong #day 2 for mental focus.

Moving with purpose, moving with power! Let's go's up for the taking!!!

Exercise is food for the soul…

Wednesday 29th Sep
If you need a pep talk on why exercise is important, you know, when you know it intellectually but just don’t feel it enough within you to generate change…
Checkout How to live younger episode 1 on iview. Hosted by Jacinta Parsons… is worth a watch

There is much to be said about learning to regulate your Parasympathetic drive… and exercise is a switch in the stress less direction.

Happy watching and moving:)

Getting ready for October...

Tuesday 21st Sep
So I am about to knock off work before dinner...normally I'd faff around and check emails a bit more or get hooked on something on YouTube or potter around the house ..but tonight I am off for a 15 minute walk...moving more throughout the day is what matters and changing our mindset to get outside takes time and I am starting early!

Join me in a small walk to add to your step count and get some fresh air in our lungs.

To better health,

Thank you to my Sponsors
