Mid-December 2016 Newsletter
Hello, and a marvelous mid-December to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above shows
me in deep discussion with a friend. Have you had a heartfelt chat
with someone you care about recently, who will really listen?
Today's issue has an article on exercise, and how a positive mindset
can make it a lot more pleasurable.
Do you have a bad attitude about exercise?
With the New Year fast approaching, you may be starting to
think about resolutions, what you want to improve in your
life. Near the top of most people's list is "get more exercise!".
This is often said with a groan. What if you could look forward
to your exercise, maybe even enjoy it? Wouldn't you prefer
to see this as something you like to do, rather than
a dreaded chore?
Most of us realize the vast benefits of exercise: better
strength and balance and flexibility and endurance, quicker
recovery from injury, improved stress management, more energy.
Studies say exercise helps your brain as well as your body, maybe
making you smarter! And some folks grit their teeth and
work out regularly even though they don't like it, knowing all this.
Wouldn't it be an added plus if we felt good while doing it too?
A certain type of exercise may be perfect for your friend or
cousin, and all wrong for you. Running is not for everyone,
nor is swimming, nor is
working out with weights. If you hate it, no matter how
enjoyable it is to others, you're not helping yourself. How
does your body want to move? Dancing around the living room to
old-time rock-and-roll? Going for a brisk walk outdoors, taking
deep breaths of the fresh air? If you find something that makes
you feel good in the moment as well as having long-term benefits,
you're much more likely to stick with it.
Finally, consider enlisting a workout buddy, someone to accompany you
to the gym or on that morning walk. You can encourage each other
when your motivation is slumping. And a friend who knows you well
and has similar fitness goals, whether it be to touch your toes
or to lose enough weight to be able to see them, can make your joint
exercise more fun. You're not in a solitary battle with that
flab or shortness of breath. It's a team effort!
The human body was designed to move and stretch and reach
and bend. Don't push yourself too hard and set unrealistic
goals, or you might wind up getting injured, but do
something. Experimient with a few types of exercise
to find one that suits you, in a group or solo, focusing on
strength or flexibility or balance. We're all different --
even if you have a twin, no one else on the planet is just
like you. So maybe your personal exercise regimen ought to be
unique too. Do something every day to celebrate your wonderful
body, and to keep it functioning at its peak. Then look at your
fit self in the mirror, grin, and say "Thank you!".
