When you are looking for inspiration, sometimes you need only look around you. Women, in particular, can find the inspiration to exercise by looking at their children and realizing how important their life is. As mothers, we have a responsibility to protect our own health so that we can care for our children.
Another source of inspiration to exercise comes from relatives. If obesity runs in your family, you can protect yourself by maintaining a regular exercise program at least 30 minutes a day for 6 days a week. Just this small amount of time spent working your body, can keep you from falling prey to hereditary weight gain or the common mid-life spread.
Exercise is not only important for maintaining weight. It helps to build muscles and strengthens our heart. When your children or husband want to play sports or do a physical activity, you will need the energy and endurance that regular exercise can provide.
That’s why I say that you can find inspiration in every day miracles. Just look at your family to inspire you to get healthy. Your children will be so happy when you feel fit and healthy and ready to participate in playing games with them. You don’t want to find yourself panting and exhausted after a short bike ride or run around the bases.
When your husband suggests a game of tennis or a marathon run, you can be prepared ahead of time, by daily exercise. Even if you aren’t up for strenuous competition, regular exercise can give you the energy you need to have fun.
You’ll find that as your fitness level improves, there are many activities that you can enjoy. Even vacations become more pleasurable because you are ready to accept new challenges and opportunities as you become more fit.
