Let’s Try Something New
How did you do last week on your walk?
Today I tried something I probably haven’t done for twenty years. I played racquetball. Or rather, I ran after the ball.
My friend and I go to the gym after work most evenings. We usually walk a mile, do some weight machines and finish with fifteen minutes on the ellipticals. But today we were feeling adventurous and we decided that it was time to try racquetball.
After donning the super sexy goggles that were provided we proceeded to chase the little blue ball all over the court. I’m positive the echos of our giggling reverberated throughout the entire building.
We were terrible but I haven’t had that much fun playing a sport for a long time!
I would encourage you to get out there and either try something new or try something old that you used to love. Do you remember roller blading? Or sledding down a hill? Or just turn on some music and dance! Working out doesn’t have to be work. If you enjoy it you will do it more often. And if you do it more often you will feel better and sleep better and that is a great way to take care of yourself!
