Is your body ready for the beach? Or should I ask “Is your mind ready for the beach?” After all, our perception of ourselves has more to do with the way we think about ourselves than the way others see us.
We exercise not only for our health, but because we feel better when we are taking care of ourselves.
Exercise can be anything that keeps you moving. I hate routine, thus I find it difficult to keep to an exercise “routine”. So I don’t, instead I have a list of things that I do to keep in shape. I try to do one of these activities everyday but I don’t beat up on myself if I miss a few days. I just get back into action.
Here are some of the things I consider exercise: walking, running, yoga, tennis, weight training and, don’t forget, cleaning house and working in the yard. I’m sure you have your own list of things you do that keep you moving. The important thing is not what you do, but doing something you enjoy everyday that keeps you moving.
What do you do to stay active?
