Outdoor Workout

It’s not just what you eat, it’s also important to work out regularly with or without equipment.  The idea is to buildup strength, improve stability, balance, mobility, and posture.

We know a daily workout is good for optimizing health, but also, we like to look good naked lol! so I am sharing some tips to start building discipline and motivation.

First, focus on achieving your goal. Write down your intention on a piece of paper or board then visualize meeting your goal.  Place it in on a wall, mirror, fridge door, really anywhere you will see it every day.

Second, organize 30 min to 1 hour of your daily time during the week and set at least 3 to 5 days for your physical activity. You want to build a routine and create a good habit for life. 

Third, check what type of physical activities you like to do; it’s important for nurturing your motivation:

  • Dance 
  • Walk 
  • Jogging or Running
  • Aerobic exercise classes.
  • Bicycle riding (stationary or on a path)
  • Lifting weight
  • Stretching
  • Pilates
  • Working with resistance bands
  • Yoga
  • Barre workouts
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Jump rope
  • Kickboxing

The most important of all, is that you can do most of this activity in your home or outdoor space.  Also, having some equipment like a stability ball at home.  A few weights or resistance bands are inexpensive and will keep you in shape.  This helps to stimulate the body’s natural motor reflexes and keep your focus.

In my case I am focused on building my strength because it’s very important for a long healthy life. I have learned through the years that using a training routine with slow focused movements can build physical and mental strength. This is a great way to increase your healthy lifespan especially when combined with healthy food habits.
