Working out is a very important part of your family’s health. It can include a number of activities from lifting weights, to swimming, to even a nice brisk walk. As children grow, exercise is important to the development of their bodies. They have plenty of energy to burn off during the day that working out comes so naturally into many elements of “play.” As adults, our bodies are already fully developed, and we don’t “play” so much anymore, but we still need to understand the importance of maintaining fitness in order to keep in good health. Often, an excuse we hear most is that many people just don’t have the time during their week to exercise. We challenge these people to commit to blocking out 30 minutes every other day to do something physical. We even encourage a fast-paced walk if other activities are too strenuous for some. As working out becomes a habit, you can begin to challenge yourself to commit more time or increase the intensity of the activities you’re already doing. Coupling exercise with a healthier diet is even more beneficial as your body will use the nutrients you consume and use those nutrients as energy for your workouts. We promise that you will feel healthier as you continue to challenge yourself to better your fitness. Keep up the activity!
