Every Monday and Thursday I join a live group workout class online. Since the beginning of the pandemic, I knew I had to do something to keep me healthy and strong. My tiny workout area in the basement is right beside where my 13 year old hangs out and plays video games. Each week I invite him to join in on the class at which point I get a “Huh” or a “What” as he continues to play. I do the workout, act like a fool and try to get him involved. Still a “no” This has been going on for months!
Just last week he came to me and said “I found this cool workout app I want to try”
Keeping my composure so I didn't scare him away with my excitement, we set up the workout notifications and schedule on his phone. It’s a simple 15 minute workout at 5:30 every day.
I share this today for 2 reasons:
Take 10 minute daily walk
Stretch every morning
Choose to eat less sugar
Swap out coffee for herbal tea once in a while
Do a 5 minute meditation before bed
Read a fiction novel for 10 minutes a day
Turn your phone off at 8pm
Drink a glass of pure water first thing in the morning or just before lunch
As we move into the cooler darker months ahead, what is one thing you can do to take good care of your physical and/or mental health?
Who’s watching and how might this positively impact them?
To Your Best Health,
