I’d never truly looked at fit­ness and ex­er­cise as a method to heal cer­tain ill­nesses. I knew keep­ing fit would help the body stay healthy, but I over­looked how it can help strengthen the body for the nec­es­sary treat­ments ahead when you’re suf­fer­ing from an ill­ness or dis­ease. It was not un­til I watched my nephew go through phys­i­cal ther­apy, to teach his body once again to func­tion nor­mally af­ter a brain surgery, that it dawned on me how fit­ness plays a huge role in help­ing pa­tients re­build their im­mune sys­tem and strength. In this is­sue, you’ll find our an­nual Fit & Fab sec­tion to keep you com­pany on your fit­ness and health jour­ney. From fit­ness rou­tines that would help those suf­fer­ing from life-threat­en­ing ail­ments to sim­ple work­outs you can do at home with your BFF, we hope that you’ll find it eas­ier to make ex­er­cise a daily af­fair, and per­haps start by do­ing an out­door ac­tiv­ity once a week. Make time to care for your­self. If you find that you’re con­stantly busy sched­ul­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for your kids, take this op­por­tu­nity to make time for your own healthy life­style. Let’s do it, ladies. Let’s cel­e­brate our­selves and give our body the best care it needs.
