Lift some weights
Lifting weights isn’t just for jocks, in fact it’s something nearly all of us should be doing. Weight lifting builds strong bones and helps maintain muscle mass that naturally decreases with age. Lifting weights is also a great way to lose weight because muscle helps burn calories.
Of course, you should start slow and get the right weight lifting equipment. But in a pinch milk jugs, bags of rice or even your kids will do.
Gardening is great exercise. It increases flexibility and balance along with burning calories. But, the benefits of gardening go beyond the physical. Gardens are an oasis of calm in a hectic world.
People who grow their own food also tend to eat healthier overall. Vegging out provides an abundance of the freshest, healthiest foods just outside your door. If you can’t create your own garden, take advantage of our local farmers’ markets.
