Give Yourself a Reason to Exercise

By Tom Herrin

We all know exercise is necessary to have the best health possible.  Some of us can really enjoy the structure of a repetitive program while others just can't get our heads around it.  For many of us, we are able to do much more if we have some incentive.  We need to be motivated to get involved and stay that way.  For this to happen, we may need to have activities that are of higher interest.  We are all different, but there is probably something out there for all of us.  It is just a matter of using our imagination enough to find them.  

Do You Play Golf?

Many people have played golf at some point in time.  It may be a good activity for you to get in some mild to moderate exercise.  If you walk the course, you will definitely do yourself some good.  There are many opportunities to play one or two times per week with various groups.  Making a point to be on a regular schedule will probably help as well.  If golf is not your thing, tennis is another good game that may be played at different levels of intensity, so you may be able to get whatever you want out of it.

Jump on a Trampoline

You probably jumped on a trampoline as a child, but that may have been it.  Some really portable personal trampolines are available today that can be easily stored or carried.  There are all kinds of activities that may be done on them without much physical impact.  You may want to try one.  You can be as creative as you want and likely have a lot of plain fun.

Hiking Can Be Enjoyable

I actually enjoy hiking as long as I have good shoes.  You will need to dress according to the occasion and be sure to have plenty of water.  A good guide is to never hike any distance straight away from your start until you have worked hard on preparedness.  You can find someplace near to hike.  Cedar Hill State Park is not too very far, and they have some good mixed terrain that can allow you to hike around a few more rocks and small hills.  Many other parks have hiking trails as well.  Once you get into this, you may find that it fits your needs and time demands well, and you can do it alone or with someone else.
