"Strength training can help you manage or lose weight, and it can increase your metabolism to help you burn more calories. Strength training may enhance your quality of life and improve your ability to do everyday activities. Strength training can also protect your joints from injury. Building muscle also can contribute to better balance and may reduce your risk of falls. This can help you maintain independence as you age."

Valley Oaks Health states that running has a lot of benefits. "The positive impacts of a run extend beyond the finish line and into bedtime. Studies show that aerobic exercise such as running can significantly improve the quality of sleep, even for those suffering from insomnia. Running has also been linked to a reduction in daytime drowsiness, meaning you'll have more energy for your day and less fatigue to fight through."


She Hikes

As you can see from this Instagram post, Soojian likes to go hiking. Piedmont states that hiking has a lot of health benefits. "Hiking can help you manage your weight. It is a joint-friendly form of exercise that can keep arthritis sufferers more limber and mobile. Being outside in the sunshine provides the body with vitamin D. For those with type 2 diabetes, hiking can possibly reduce, or even eliminate, your need for insulin. Talk with your doctor about how exercise may reduce your need for medication. Hiking offers psychological benefits, often contributing to a feeling of relaxation and enhanced well-being."


She Does Yoga

As you can see in this Instagram video, Soojian likes to practice yoga. In the video, she is seen doing a headstand pose. Harvard Health states that yoga has a lot of benefits. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years gained less weight during middle adulthood. People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."


She Rock Climbs

As you can see from her Instagram post, Soojian likes to rock climb. The High Peak Conference Center states that rock climbing has a lot of benefits. "Rock climbing and climbing walls are excellent workouts for building upper body strength, core strength, and endurance. Climbing involves using the muscles in your arms, shoulders, back, and core to pull yourself up while also engaging your legs for balance and stability."
