If you read, watch, or listen to news of any kind, you know you should exercise. You hear it all the time. Physical activity is good for you for a bajillion reasons, and you damn well know it.
But do you actually do it? I don’t. But I want to.
I found some inspiration from this week’s On Balance guest blog at the Washington Post website. A former Olympic rower with twin toddlers writes about her one hour a day of swimming. She says “it works as a buffer against the emotional challenges of parenting.”
That sounds pretty good. I could use that. Of course, she has to wake at 6 a.m. to make it to the pool and back home in time to work. But making the time is worth it to her.
Do you work out? What kind of benefits do you enjoy from it? How do you make the time? I could use the inspiration to get started!
