We tend to think that exercise only happens or counts if we are at the gym. But you don’t have to get a gym membership or run a marathon to enjoy the benefits of daily exercise. You simply need to start moving more. In fact, exercise is anything you enjoy that gets your heart rate and breathing up. Literally anything. So find an activity you enjoy doing and start exercising, your way.
Simply put, we need to start moving more no matter what it is. Scrubbing your kitchen floor really hard or raking leaves in your yard for 10 minutes at a time counts. Maybe you enjoy Salsa dancing, riding your bike, taking walks or doing workout videos in your living room. Whatever exercise you enjoy, whether it’s dancing, sports, yoga, walking, aerobics, hiking or yard work it doesn’t matter as long as it gets your body moving and your heart rate and breathing up.
No judging: we’re all on the same journey, just at different stages so let’s not tear each other down.
