Let’s Get Moving!

Promoting increased physical exercise.

           Staying physically active can be a challenge.  Many struggle to fit in exercise amongst the many other commitments that have been made.  Between our commitments for our work, social commitments we make with family and friends, and the many other ‘things that need to get done,’ some of us do not prioritize ourselves in making a commitment to regularly incorporate exercise into our busy schedules.  

           It is important though for us to make sure that we are taking care of our physical selves, lest we lose the ability to maintain our other commitments due to poor health.  What each of us needs to decide is how we can best commit to maintaining our health.  Decide what you need in order to commit to yourself.  Do you need a workout space at home?  Do you need to join a gym?  Do you need to sign up for a class?  Do you need a workout buddy or group?  Do you need to track your progress?  Do you need to have someone else design a schedule or routine for you?  DO you need a coach?  

          I have discovered that the commitment is higher with several of these elements, rather than only one or two.  Of course, that is my needs.  Each person has to decide what they need to do in order to maintain their physical health as a priority.  We should realize too that as life changes, so do our needs.  When you decide to make it a goal to take care of yourself, then you can also make goals for how well you are caring for yourself.  Do you know what you need to do?
