We all know the importance of exercise for all aspects of your health. It can help you not only feel better and have more energy, increase circulation to your pelvic floor, and help prevent osteoporosis, but the endorphins can improve your mood even in rough times such as menopause.
At times though, it may seem that our body is rebelling against what should be a reward for your dedication to exercise.
