Find Something Different for Exercise

By Tom Herrin


A lot of us get bored doing the same old thing all of the time.  If you are into exercise, you may enjoy the consistency, but some have a hard time with the drudgery.  There is no doubt about the fact that we need exercise, but there are all kinds of ways to get it.  If you want variety, there are some activities that allow us to be creative and try some new things.  How many of us have done standup paddleboard yoga?  It probably isn't that many, but there are some out there who do and enjoy it quite a bit.

Try Dance Lessons

When you hear a reference to taking dance lessons, you may think of square dancing.  It is true that is one kind, but there are plenty of others.  Dancing for any length of time requires some endurance.  It also can build up the legs.  If you have ever spent much time on a dance floor, you probably know that.  Spending 30 minutes or an hour dancing can be a pretty good workout, and there are lots of places to do so.  We often turn on some music in our home and dance for two or three songs or more.  It can be a great way to get some exercise as well as wind down for the day.

Pull on Some Skates

If you are like me, you thought skates were always pretty big and clumsy.  I did not do too well with them and could seldom really get the hang of it.  With what is on the market today, skates are much more streamlined and lightweight.  They seem to be easier to handle and are much more versatile.  You can use these on a sidewalk, walking track, or any place that is the least bit smooth.  They are also pretty affordable.  When you are using these, you may find that you will exercise more with less thought of just how much you are doing.

Try Martial Arts

Self-defense can be a useful thing to have and know.  For many years, martial arts have been popular for this, but they can be a great way to get in shape and maintain condition.  I am no expert, but I have done a little bit of it.  I found the activity to be really useful, and when I was participating in it, I was able to stay in good shape.  This is a great activity if you want to accomplish a couple of things at once.  You learn to protect yourself while getting in better shape.
