As I was entering the Peoria Recreation Center in Arizona I saw this image you see above and it spoke to me. It got me thinking about the word recreation. From it’s origin, to create anew. Yes, that is what I think it is all about. That is what can help transform you and more importantly transform your thoughts about exercise and activity. Transform it from something that you can’t stand to do to something that you actually have fun doing, something recreational. And in doing so, I know that you will create something new while enjoying yourself at the same time.
So just remember, exercise does not have to make you feel like a hamster on a wheel, it does not have to even take place in a gym, but it does have to be enjoyable for it to be sustainable. Play games with the kids, participate in a sport activity you can handle, walk the dog, throw a ball…something, but have fun doing it.
