Boot Camp, gym classes, running, swimming, rock climbing etc. are all wonderful ways to exercise but the reality is many of us just don’t have the time (working long hours or a house full of small children) or money to commit to it. But the truth is YOU have to MOVE to survive. Exercise is a must. People who live over 100 years of age walk many miles a day, every day.
To get things going if you haven’t exercised for years, get out of the chair and take that first step. Walk with purpose to the letterbox, water the garden (and pick out a weed or two while you’re there!), walk around the block or even your yard (with or without a pram). Breathe in fresh air and congratulate yourself. Promise yourself that tomorrow and the next day you will do the same thing only walk a little further. You’ll be walking like a pro in no time. Put real physical purpose into all your daily chores and activities.
If you are confined to indoors consider a mini trampoline or ‘rebounder’. Position it in the fresh air if you can and use it for at least 10 – 15 minutes a day. It really gets the lymphatic system moving to help eliminate toxins by stretching and contracting every cell in your body. But at the end of the day, just keep moving to save your life.
