  • Staying Active Is The Key

    [caption id="attachment_1789" align="alignleft" width="427" caption="Staying Active vs. Excersizing "]Staying healthy[/caption]


    We all would like to spend as much time as we can outdoors when the weather is as nice as it is now. Staying active is the key to staying healthy, not necessarily working out. Take a look at this article from Zen To Fitness, where they give us some great tips for staying active and healthy during the summer.

    As its summer we ideally want to spend less time in the gym and more time outdoors. If it’s not sunny out at least its warmer and more bearable to exercise in the open than the rest of the year – and if you are lucky enough to live somewhere hot, well then a gym is not somewhere you really want to be with the nice weather.

    Ideally we would all like to feel in good shape, feel well and exercise without the need for fancy equipment. Just using our bodies to move and maximise our natural capacity to shape the body, feel flexible and mobile.

    Until the last few years I would spend way too much time exercising and way too much time in the gym – all in search of something futile and ultimately un maintainable. There have been some valuable lessons learnt and while some people will look at the tips below and be slightly confused by the discrepancies with ‘normal’ advice the tips have been very valuable in my own everyday life as well as others I have worked with…..

    Try not to get preoccupied with exercise - this is the first step to being and feeling healthy. As soon as we lose the addiction or emotional connection exercise – as in feeling guilty. If you can get to the point where you don’t  ‘need’ to exercise or do a workout to makeup for too much drinking, eating, sitting around etc we are on the path to exercising and moving for health, not to force health.
    This is easier said than done especially coming from a culture which makes us feel bad for not exercising on a regular basis.
