Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I really hope that you all had a great day. Last week on Monday we were talking about family fitness, and how changing our lifestyles to be healthier is a great influence to our children. Changing is not easy, but it is a simple matter of finding what you like. I was talking with client’s of mine, and it is amazing how most of them do not exercise AT ALL. There is no motivation, and they feel just because they do not have any major health problems now that it doesn’t affect them. Us health and wellness junkies no better. Physical activity is so much more that what you weigh. It is connect to your mental health as well as your physical health. It improves sleep, your mood, and even your bowel movements.
While talking to them can become a bit disheartening, I usually try to turn the conversation around into a positive. It is important to meet them where they are at. Find something realistic that they can do, and provide options.
Whether it’s running, yoga, Zumba, hiking, swimming, or simply walking, there is something for them, and there is something for you. You just have to break out of your comfort zone, and try something different. I suggest researching classes in your area, and actually committing to go. Maybe you could bring a buddy with you to make things interesting. I know my sister and god sister (who just happen to be best friends) to a hip hop class together, and they said it was the best and the most fun they have had in a long time exercising. Very much like them, all it requires is a leap of faith.
Find something or multiple physical activities that work for you, and spice up your life! At times we are oh too comfortable just sticking to the norm. Be adventurous. Be daring. Be active. Be Well & Fit.
