The Importance of Exercise


The Smoothie Essentials Blends support and assist a healthy lifestyle.

Good Health in many ways includes both diet and exercise, to be sure.  But can a person’s health be slowly eaten away by an unseen enemy called ‘anxiety?’ Not helping much is the dilemma that it’s often difficult to pinpoint the source of uneasiness, fear and worry in our lives, creating even more anxiety or worry. Uncertainness about the future is the usual culprit, and the future can be greatly overpowering for those of us facing health concerns. Thus the loop is complete and we find ourselves tossed into the ‘spin cycle.’

Surprisingly, the solution can be as simple as stepping outside and going for a walk. Exercise doesn’t have to be associated with competition or honing one’s athletic skills. It doesn’t need to involve signing a contract at a health club. Relieving stress is as simple as getting up out of the chair and walking down the sidewalk, enjoying the sun, the trees, the fresh air.

The Archives of Internal Medicine recently presented a review of how exercise affects anxiety. Toronto’s CTV writes, “the reviewers say they found solid evidence that exercise can curb anxiety,” in people who are battling health problems. They reviewed results from 40 different studies, involving 3,000 study volunteers, and the results are in: “…they found that it didn’t matter how they exercised or how vigorously; the participants all reported they felt less worried, apprehensive and nervous.”

All of our Smoothie Essential Blends are specifically designed to encourage a healthy diet. Enjoy the ones that are right for you, and do something physically active every day.


About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes. More information is available at or by emailing
