Remember when you were a kid, and how it seemed you could skip, run, bike, swim, etc, for hours on end. Or go back and forth across the monkey bars, over and over again even with sore hands, just for fun? We called it play back then…we weren’t worried about how many calories we were burning, or how silly we looked while doing it ……..WE JUST DID IT!
But somewhere along the way that all changed. We became obsessed about the numbers, calories, distance, time….. It was no longer fun, or something we did for pleasure, but instead, a way to punish our bodies. We started to use it as a way to change how we looked, or as punishment for something we ate. Play became work and ultimately something we began to dread.
It’s time to stop fixating on #‘s and beating our bodies down and just move simply because it’s fun. Its time to start engaging in activities that make us feel good, happy and alive…….seriously, when was the last time you did that? Think of something that you really enjoyed doing as a kid….maybe it was riding your bike, swimming….skipping….hula hooping, etc…..now ask yourself, when was the last time you did that activity?? It’s time to go do that…….JUST FOR FUN.
