Do you get so busy that you forget to make time for yourself? Here are a few great fitness tips.
Book time throughout your day for your fitness just like you would for an appointment.
The early morning works the greatest for me and it is my ‘me time’. Today being Thanksgiving Day in Canada, the gym did not open until 8:00. I was there when they opened, although I do prefer to start my workout at 6:00.
If you are not able to attend a gym or workout class go for a walk and take a friend with you.
Raking leaves strengthens your arms and back.
Digging in the garden works your arms and legs.
Being active while running errands.
When you go shopping park towards the back of the lot and walk the extra distance. This is one I do often.
Take the stairs. Another of my faves.
You must start somewhere to get anywhere.
Exercise improves life in many ways, while keeping you young at heart.
Being a fit baby boomer myself I only hope to inspire other baby boomers to be more active.
Always talk with your doctor before starting a new fitness program.
Even the smallest step can be a first step.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you that are celebrating today.
