If our ancestor from 200 – 300yrs ago could see some of us now, they’d be disgusted at how lazy and out of shape many of us are due to our poor food choices and lack of exercise.
When I start working with clients and take a brief history from them, it’s amazing how many of them have no structured exercise and don’t even have a lifestyle that includes any amount of strenuous physical activity on a regular basis.
You see there are weeks when I don’t put on a DVD and get jiggy with Gillian Micheals, but every day involves some levels of heavy lifting from lifting and carry 1 (or 2) babies and children, laundry, mopping and sweeping, hovering, making beds, carrying and packing groceries etc and in my house, you have to move quickly before when it comes to housework, take too long with it and you’re sure to be interrupted by an argument that needs quelling, a spillage or breakage, a ripped off nappy causing havoc or a student wailing for help with their sums. So I can confidently say that as a busy homeschooling mother of 5, i have an active lifestyle, but even I need some structured exercise.
I’d say about 50% of clients I work with have lives that involve driving or being driven to work, sitting down at work, driving or being driven home, then sitting at the computer or TV before sitting in a bath before bed.
I appreciate that our society is made in a way that promotes and encourages this pattern, but unless you use step one from this book and find the time exercise, we will end up like the people in Wall.E minus the cute rusty robot.
The main benefits of regular physical exercise (to name just a few) are:
A few fun, quick or easy ways you can easily get regular exercise into your life
Make sure to do a good warm up or at least a few stretches before you start anything to strenuous and if you've been told that you have a medical condition that prevents you from exercising, find a professional exercise coach (I’d recommend a certified CHEK Practitioner) to show you what you can do.
The whole book will be out on 9th Dec, but you can download the first chapter *FR*EEE now at www.budgetbehaviourbelieft.com
For now, take care and stay healthy
