We all KNOW that exercising is GOOD for us but then WHY is it so HARD to do? The benefits are plenty:
- It strengthens the heart
- It helps keep arteries and veins clear.
- It strengthens the lungs.
- It reduces blood sugar levels.
- It controls weight.
- It strengthens bones.
- It helps prevent cancer.
- It regulates blood pressure.
- It improves energy levels.
- It enhances emotional well-being.
But MOSTLY we just FEEL better AFTER we do exercise!
And yet for many of us, we simply do not make a regular habit of exercising! I am as guilty as the next person, I know I should and yet….I procrastinate almost always. And yet there are so many ways to exercise that do NOT require going to the gym. It can be a walk through a meadow or along a beach (if your lucky enough to live by one!). How about a bike ride through a scenic path or jump in a kayak if you are located near water! It simply takes opening the door and stepping outside and just enjoying the outdoors as we simply….GET A MOVE ON!
My goal for this year is to do exactly that…..make it a habit to MOVE!
