Amy's Corner:When did exercise become work for you?
I subbed in my daughter's second grade classroom a few times this year. It's been great to dust off the rust and get back in the classroom a little bit, but MAN do those kids have a TON of ENERGY! I love it! At one point after almost 2 hours of math I decided it was time to move! They needed practice with their doubles + 1 facts so I had them stand and when they figured out the sum of the fact I called out they had to do that many push ups or sit ups or jacks. Whatever I came up with. They were SO excited!
I watched them at recess run like crazy and play hard. Hula hoops were going, the monkey bar line was long and a game of two-hand touch football was going on. When I blew the whistle they all came sprinting to line.
At some point we've lost the child-like fun that comes with moving our bodies. Rather than be something we enjoy and just do, it's something we are forced to schedule and can even dread.
My challenge for adults is to fine that joy again that comes with moving. There are SO MANY paths out there for you to explore. Hobbies, fitness classes, playgrounds with your kids, gardening...find something you enjoy and do it often. And the fitter you become, the more your body will move with ease, and they more you'll be able to explore and enjoy!
Now go act like a 7 year old! :)
