    When a person smokes a cigarette, a spike of nicotine is delivered to the brain. This causes the activation of certain brain receptors who then release dopamine, providing pleasure and improvements in mood. The same result can be achieved by being more active and doing some form of exercise, from walking to swimming, biking, hiking to yoga, Tai Chi or other activities. Even if you are physically limited you might be able to do exercises while you are sitting. Check in with your Healthcare Provider first before starting any exercise routine.
    Now that summer is officially here, what kind of activities could you do this weekend and thereafter to lead a more active life?

    Happy Canada Day!
