Welcome to the City of Solutions – Pop. You
We all have challenges, but do you seem to have an excuse for not being as physically active as you could? Take a look at some ideas on how to get past the City of Excuses and to the City of Solutions.
Know your “why.” Remind yourself every day why you want to get active. Ask family and friends to remind you too. Plan ahead. Make physical activity a regular part of your schedule. Put it on your calendar.
Break your 150 minutes into 10-minute chunks.
Work out while you get things done. Move briskly while you sweep the floor, mow the lawn, or walk your dog.
Download free exercise apps. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
Turn on the music and dance. March in place.
Ask your health care provider how to treat the injury. For instance, you may need to rest and ice the area. Use splints and supports as needed.
