How I keep healthy...
Typically a childhood activity, hula hooping has a huge number of benefits including increased cardiac endurance and heart health, increased flexibility and spine mobility, increased muscle tone in stomach, butt, arms, and legs-- to name a few. Besides, it's loads of fun. And did you know that you can burn up to 100 calories every 10 minutes of hula hooping???
Oh the benefits of hiking...there are so many, including increased cardio-vascular health, increased muscle tone, increased bone density, decrease cancer risk and so so much more! The great part? Hiking is so much fun. It is easy to forget you are exercising when you spend most of the time exploring the sites around you.
Swimming. Now that the swimming pool is open for the season, I am planning to spend a lot of time poolside, reading, writing, and blogging- but I also plan on taking time and swimming laps. Swimming is such an amazing activity, and on a hot day, there is no better place to be than in a cool swimming pool!
And my favorite activities...Line Dancing!!!
(Sorry, I didn't have a great picture of me and my line dance buddies...I will have to get some!)
I love music. I love to dance.
Not only do you get great aerobic exercise from line dancing, but it also has many social and emotional benefits. I have made some very special and amazing friendships with my line dancing buddies. I cherish every one of them! And line dancing is a great way to escape the computer screen and all the stress of the day.
I spend 2-4 hours line dancing a week and rarely miss a class.
It is also important to eat right!
What do you do to stay active???
Have a great day and stay healthy! -Rebecca
