National Move More Month

National Move More Month is every April and the objective of this month is clear and simple: get up and move! Created by the American Heart Association as a way to help improve health of Americans everywhere, National Move Month is aimed at getting more of us to hit 10,000 steps everyday or, even better, to hit that 20-minutes of aerobic exercise mark everyday.”

Exercise has always been a part of my life. I used to work out 45-60 minutes a few times a week. But nowadays, I find myself doing light exercises throughout the day while at home. By “light” I mean the basics: sit-ups, push-ups, squats, jumping jacks. Sometimes in-between meetings and deadlines.
Other times, DURING meetings.  Hey, why not?!? (Zoom video OFF, of course!)

You don’t need to pay a membership fee to some gym that you (probably) won’t frequent, or be a “workout-warrior” and train 1-2 hours/day.  Just the very act of moving – doing something physical – consistently can have a positive affect on your health.  You can do what I do – or something else.

Bike.

Jog.

A game of pickup basketball with friends at your local park or YMCA.

Go for a walk outside and commune with Mother Nature.  Or walk around the house.

Pick an activity and “Just Do It!”
