#Heart30: EXERCISE

At the 'heart' of my #Heart30 Self-Care Challenge are five main components: SLEEP, WATER, SELF-CARE, DIET and EXERCISE. In this blog post, we will discuss the last, but not least (and in no particular order), the final component. Exercise.



Nothing will get your heart pumping and your endorphins flowing like exercise!


Going to the gym isn't for everyone (and that is okay!). Maybe it's too cold for you to go outside and walk but there is something for each and every one of us. Our bodies were meant to move. They are designed to have exercise. Dare I say it's not an option!


For those of us who may be resistant to committing to exercise as part of our daily lives, I've made this list of ideas for you...


*Dance - Exercise doesn’t have to feel like punishment.  Crank up your favorite tunes and dance. Whether you're shaking it to salsa, busting a move to hip-hop, or twirling around your living room like a ballerina, dancing is a fantastic way to burn calories and boost your mood.


*Outdoor adventures - The weather is getting nice for many of us. Who needs a boring treadmill when you have the great outdoors as your playground? Lace up your hiking boots, hop on your bike, or grab your paddleboard and explore the world around you. Whether you're scaling mountains, biking through forests, or paddling across serene lakes, outdoor adventures are the ultimate way to stay fit while soaking up some vitamin D.


*Unlimited exercise classes on YouTube. There is any kind of exercise that you could possibly be interested in on the Internet. You can use dumbbells or exercise bands. If you don't have those you can use your own body's resistance or a can of green beans. The world is at our fingertips and that includes exercise classes.


If it's too cold or rainy to go out then find something to do indoors. Having an accountability partner can help. You can even do it together. ☺ 


Remember exercise isn't just about sweating buckets and lifting heavy weights. It's also about finding your inner peace.


How about yoga with some gentle stretching, deep breathing, and mindfulness meditation. Not only will you strengthen your body, but you'll also calm your mind and soothe your soul.


Exercise doesn't have to be a dreaded chore. With a little creativity and a whole lot of fun, you can turn your workout routine into the highlight of your day.


Embrace the joy of movement, and let the world of exercise transform your body, mind, and spirit!


Live every day on purpose,

Peggy Romero
