Are you having a mental block? Do you feel like your brain is stuck and you can’t get the wheels turning? Stand up! Brain activity improves when you move your body. Many of the desk jobs that people have require a great deal of brain power. So why then are we stuck to a chair for 8+ hours a day? Perhaps someday it will be a commonality to have a versatile standing-sitting work station so employees can get blood pumping power right to their brains. Until then try to take frequent stretch breaks, small walks, and consider standing while you read or talk on the phone. Not only will you be benefiting your brain you will be burning a few extra calories too!
Fall is just around the corner. Now is a great time to get outside and enjoy the cooler tempertures, the smell of fall flowers, and watching the trees change into a more colorful attire. Slip on some sneakers and stroll through the trails or kick up your heals for some speedwork. Fall festivals will be on all of the local calendars, and where there are festivals there are often races to accompany them. Get out and do good. You will do good by supporting your community and your health. Run or walk, just don’t fall!
Need to find a race?
I am keeping a critical mind as I begin my inspirational words this morning. To start I am asking myself why you should want to read “Physical Matters”. One of my first thoughts is that I am not a high priced personal trainer and my college degree is in Computer Informations Systems, not Exercise Science.
Ah! But wait!! That might just be two very good reasons for you want to read Physical Matters. Perhaps I can provide a different perspective. Maybe I have alternative insight that can be beneficial too!?!
Human help is the way I like to look at it. I do some things right and some things wrong in fitness, health, & life in general; but isn’t that what human is?? This human will help you the best way I know how. I have held aerobics certifications in the past, taught classes, taken classes so please don’t think I am completly inexperienced. I long to be a fitness advocate because I believe in it. Go believe in yourself and get moving. And don’t be so critical, you are only human!
Forever Fit is one of my mottoes. Feeling fit invigorates me inside and outside my body. Fitness is a realm. It’s a realm because fitness is not only a 30 minute cardio burn. Your “realm” might embody a deep, cleansing breath, a soulful stretch, or a warm, reassuring smile.
Because it does.
I hope to make this a place that will focus on health, fitness, nutrition and more. Hopefully, I can help inspire help you be the most complete you.
