Exercise is good for the mind and the body. Just like everything, you need to enjoy the activity to stick with it. If you have not exercised, do not try to start big. But please do start. It takes an average of 21 days to create a new habit. Make it easy for you to say yes. Choose a work out buddy. Pick a fun activity. Do something with your kids or grandkids. Start slow and expect to be a little sore. That is a message from your muscles that you worked them. Being sore is okay. Being swollen and red is not expected.
