On the Move

color-run

I heard a personal trainer say last week: “sitting is the new smoking.”
 
This startled me. I’m sure that was his intent. And then I found this article with nearly the same title. Ok, let’s add this to the ever growing list of things that are bad for us. For many of us, that’s not a problem — food service operations doesn’t involve a lot of “sit time.” 
 
And, yet, we hear how important (like super, super important) it is to not just move around during the day, but to get your heart-rate pumping for a sustained 30 minutes (minimum) every day (strive for 5 at least!). Heavy breathing…is so good for us. 
 
Now that the snow has melted, the birds are singing, and spring is in the air, what are some ways to make this a habit and a gift to yourself?
