Hear your body, the body will tell you how much you can work and what is good for you and when to stop. It is necessary to warm up before you do exercises and to warm down at the end. Mild physical activity will have maximum effect if it is practiced continuously and that mean 3-4 times a week.

Some woman find exercising great and relaxing because it helps your blood circulation which means that all the toxins go out of your body and you intake extra amount of oxygen.
