We are not talking gym rat, muscle mass, toss the grandkids in the air fitness here. I mean, walk to the post office without breathing hard, getting up and down the stairs, or just living and doing what you want to do fitness.
It seems that a lot of us, and I use “us” as a general term here, stop doing things. Activities that were once normal, like hmmm, bending a bit further to get that extra stretch, walking instead of riding or playing games that involve moving. And for what reason? We get older and we forget to play, or how to play, or just think that maturing means we “have to stop” acting like a child?
Think back to just how much fun it was to play, run, skip, jog, or just have stupid fun.
The ability to do some of that is not that far out of reach. It just takes a little work. Reaching a bit more, stretching a bit more. Bending a bit more than you do right now. There are lots of exercises online you can download. There are lots of personal trainers, gyms, classes.
But, most of this can be done right at home, at your leisure, a little at a time. On my other blog, I will be posting some tips now and then for simple exercises and will also be posting some here.
