Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. Plato
A lot of people make excuses to not exercise. However, it is an essential part of your overall health and can greatly contribute to how you feel and how you look. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO A GYM TO EXERCISE. That is the biggest excuse that I hear. Heck, I don’t like to go to a gym either. I have to drive there, walk in, go do the exercise, talk to people if they talk to you, then go back home. A lot of wasted time. Now I am not down on the gym or group exercise as it is a wonderful thing if you have the time and disipline to go. That’s where a lot of people fail. That extra half hour to get ready to go then drive there and back is just not in your day. There is so much you can do in the comfort of your house. There are numerous studies that show just 15 minutes or so of combined exercise several days a week can accomplish a new level of fitness in you. Just think, you don’t have to do your hair or dress in any nice new gym clothes. You can exercise in your PJ’s if you want. You don’t even need a treadmill at home or other machines. You can get a small set of dumb bells to start or do exercises using your own body weight. Warming up with jumping jacks or high stepping in place and waving your arms is great to get your heart pumping and your brain awake. You can follow that with some push ups, crunches, body weight squats or any numerous isometric exercises. It works. With enough time you will not want to miss doing them…and all in a simple 15 minutes of your day. Attached is a link to an interesting article that hopefully will help you get started.
