TO GYM OR NOT TO GYM, THAT IS THE QUESTION…
USE IT OR LOSE IT seems to be the message we should all listen to!
Before we get serious, let’s share a laugh, after all, laughter is not only good for the soul, it is a very healthy .
- If walking is good for your health, the Postman would be immortal.
- A whale swims all day, only eats fish, only drinks water and is fat.
- A rabbit only eats vegetables, runs and hops all day long and only lives 5 years.
- A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing energetic, yet it lives for 450 years.
…And YOU tell ME to exercise! I don’t think so.
The answer is as different as people are. There is no one answer that will fit everyone. I have used, and enjoyed, going to gyms. I have a re-bounder and an bike in my home that I enjoy. Our park has a . Yet at the moment I’m not using all the things available to me- my Doctor wrote a note for me to take to the in order to cancel my contract because I’ve been ordered not to exercise there for at least a year. I’m told NOT to jump because of my back- so stay off your re-bounder, but yes if you don’t JUMP on it, but just have a gentle up and down movement you can do that. I am encouraged to walk and told I should do it in a pool twice a week of possible. Is this really exercise?
I’m now reminded of an Aunt who had a and as she recovered, she was told she must get out and walk every day. That was when I learned that our heart is a great big muscle and needs exercise to keep strong and serve us well. We must use our or over time they will lose much of their strength, and that can be very bad news for us, whether it’s our or those in our arms and legs. ALL the muscles in our body must be moved regularly in order to keep them strong- and we do need strong muscles for the many things we do in life.
We don’t NEED a gym or exercise ‘toys’, but they can be fun and give us the incentive we need to move and use our muscles- and that, my friends, is what it’s all about. USE THEM OR LOSE THEM- WILL YOU?
TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!
