It may come as no surprise that balance and coordination deteriorate with age. Below is a great article outlining reasons for regular exercise, along with ways to keep the mind-body connection strong. Hafner’s article also brings to light possible negative effects of long-term medication use.

Preventing a fall, and the resulting injuries, isn’t simply a matter of being more careful. Indeed, experts who have studied falls wish that people would take measures to protect themselves much as they do against heart disease or viral infections.

We’ve heard it a million times . . . if you want to reach your goals, stop making excuses and just get your workout done.
I’m here to admit – it can be really hard! When someone in my life needs something, I jump and put myself on the back burner. (Sadly, the back burner gets turned off at night.)
It helps having the kids back at school, but that doesn’t stop the mental excuses on busy days.
- I don’t have enough time to get all my sets in, so I’ll do it on X-day!
Do what you can with the time available and move on
- The day got away and I’m tired
Focus your energy on a basic workout session
- I’m sore and need an extra day of rest
15-20 minutes of Yoga will do wonders!
“Excuses” turn into set backs and we all know it. The point is to just keep going and do your best. Not every single workout will be spectacular because life gets in the way. Stopping derails all your effort up to that point and makes getting back on take WAY longer!
So there you have it, my excuses for everyone to see. Feel free to share your excuses, no judgments 😉
Wishing you bountiful energy and drive to get on track and stay there!!
Have you seen Colbie Caillat in her video”Try?” A great message speaking to women on a plethora of levels about topics such as self-image, media, unrealistic expectations, what it means to be a striving woman living in America.
The observations Caillat makes about comments she has received from others when she’s not wearing makeup and looking “dolled” up definitely confirm my experiences.
The makeunder happens all while she sings “Try,” which the singer hopes will help take the focus off unrealistic beauty standards, and remind women to be true to themselves.
There’s nothing more beautiful than someone who is comfortable in her own skin and unafraid of letting her inner light shine through. If you haven’t read an article, here’s a great one: http://www.buzzfeed.com/melissaharrison/colbie-caillat-no-makeup-music-video
