If you’ve found yourself feeling sluggish these past couple of weeks, Her Majesty the Queen has a solution for you.
Yes, that’s right - Queen Elizabeth II.
This year, she’s turning 95 years young.
Now, not only is this impressive (seeing as the life expectancy for women in the UK is a little over 81 years),
But those who are over 95 definitely aren’t as active as Her Majesty, who shows no signs of slowing down.
Plus she always seems full of energy and in a great mood.
We don’t know about you, but we can’t help but wonder - what’s her secret?!
Well, apparently, there is one!
And it has nothing to do with vigorous exercise, long gym sessions, or restrictive diets.
On the contrary, the Queen likes to keep her workouts as simple as possible.
But she never skips them and always makes them a priority.
She believes it’s what gives her an endless amount of energy and keeps her in a good mood all day long.
So what is the Queen’s secret?
The answer is simple: walking.
Every day at around 2.30 pm, the Queen goes for a brisk walk.
That’s right, she believes being active every day, and spending time outdoors is the single best thing for your health.
There’s research to support her theory, too.
An Italian longevity researcher, Dan Buettner, suggests walking is the exercise that could get you to your 100th birthday.
During his extensive research, he noticed people who lived to their 100 birthday were those who moved every day.
And he doesn’t mean strenuous exercises.
He suggests shepherds who walk their flocks every day for miles on end have higher chances to live until 100 than farmers who live on the same land.
We think this is excellent news especially right now when the gyms and pools are closed due to lockdown.
Because even if you can’t sit on a stationary bike, lift weights on machines, or go for a swim
You can still go outside and enjoy a nice, long walk.
So, try the Queen’s secret to recharging your batteries and boosting your energy.
