Be Active!

So what have you been doing with yourself, sitting around eating chips and watching the tube or just surfing the net? Whatever the case may be, there is no better time than the present to get up and go!

Some people are more sedentary than others they enjoy vegging. They do as little as possible. Some people even claim that this is an incurable personality trait, a disease of the will. I say you can change anything you want to change. As for being active I would go as far as saying even if you donít want to be active-do it anyway. You will feel better. You will look better. And you will be better. If you have been sitting on your duff for so long you donít know where to begin, begin now. All you need is 20 minutes a day.

Pick an activity that you enjoy doing, or at least can learn to enjoy. Try walking or riding your bike instead of getting a ride. Join a team sport at school. Start after school fitness classes like aerobics, yoga, martial arts, or dance.  Once you start keep a fitness journal, it will help you keep track of your progress and it will help motivate you. 

At first it will be drudgery and you may think that you donít have time to waste working out. There are some early risers who get up before school or work and go to the gym or take a morning walk. Morning People! Exercising right after school or work makes it easier to do when you are getting started on a new exercise routine. It also helps to relieve the tension and stresses of the day.

Like everything exercising takes commitment. Commit to a better you. Donít do it because someone told you to, do it because you want to look and feel better.
