Chiropractic Tip: Keep Mixing Up Your Fitness Moves
By Sandy Schroeder
By now, we all have the message. Most of us sit too much at work and at home, which means we had better move a lot in order to stay healthy. Keeping physical activities interesting could include a visit to a barre, ballet-inspired fitness studio, or a rock-climbing gym. You might try an exercise/dance session with an hour of frantic motion every week. Or you could check out your community’s basketball, volleyball or soccer activities. Local teams may have spots open, or you may just want to do pick-up games on local courts. In the midst of summer heat and humidity, you could join your kids in the sprinklers, pool or lake, whatever works.
More Motion Options
If you are not the action sports type, there are lots of ways to stay active every day. Household tasks such as vacuuming, mopping, and laundry count. Gardening, digging, and bush-trimming work. At the same time, weekend camping, afternoon browsing in a flea market, or playing with the kids in the park all count, too. Just keep moving.
