Hello All! Today’s topic is an important one. I want to brief discuss the importance of taking of ourselves. Everyone would agree that the “self” is the most important topic. And as that is the case I just want to make a list of some important things to remember.
1. The weather is warmer now so please, make sure that you drink water before, during and after exercise (especially in hotter climates). One should drink about 8 oz before strenuous exercise and another 8 oz during and after that exercise period.
2. Practice exercise safety. Use a helmet while biking (no matter how silly you look) and practice safety in the gym too. Remember to enlist the aid of a “spotter” for lifting heavier weights and to not over-exert yourself. Trust me, it does more harm than good.
3. Wear sunscreen everyday. With that said, have a window of time to allow vitamin D to enter your body. Vitamin D is a free gift that the sun gives us and protects our immune system and gives us lots of energy. Think of how good you feel after spend some significant time outside – it’s the Vitamin D!
4. Don’t do everything alone. Exercise can be a solitary event, but it is more fun with a friend. Having a workout buddy motivates you and challenges you. Plus, it is so much fun to exercise with someone else!
If you don’t have a workout buddy and you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, then you have one now! My job is to be a workout buddy, but I am so much more! Come and find out by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 510-734-7453.
Thanks for following and remember to always be Fit For Success!
