Make Exercise a Regular Practice

Make Exercise a Regular Practice

This week’s Healthy Habit involves the ugly big E-word. . .exercise. It is so easy to avoid. It is often dreaded and feared. It can be downright intimidating and hard to start doing. . .or sticking with. But, it is critical for so many reasons:

– Your overall health (it improves cardiovascular, weight issues, digestion, anxiety, etc.).

– It can provide mental clarity.


– It increases energy levels (maybe not at first, but stick with it and you will see a difference).

Start small if needed. . .take a walk through the woods, challenge your kids to a game of basketball, do a YouTube exercise video at home.

And then build from there. Make it fun. Give yourself small goals, increasing your duration and intensity along the way.

Look at your calendar and SCHEDULE the exercise.

The Bright Light Living Healthy Habits series is designed to help you live a well-rounded and happy life with exercise being its critical foundation. Exercise provides the energy, stamina, and strength to tackle other healthy habits and goals.

[Every Monday, a new ‘habit’ will be posted as part of my Bright Light Living Healthy Habits series. These ‘Healthy Habits’ encompass habits for the mind, body, spirit, and one’s perspective of life—in order to LIVE BRIGHT.  You may wish to implement the habits each week (if so, I encourage you to download the Healthy Habits Assessment form). Or, the week’s habit can simply serve as a journal prompt or something to ponder.  It’s up to you. I do hope you will check in each week.]
