It takes effort, and, no matter how strongly we believe in it, actually doing it can be a challenge.Here's a couple of tips if you think you cannot exercise.1. Prioritize your exercise.
2. Make it pleasure, not punishment.Prioritize Your ExerciseBy prioritize, I don't mean set up a workout schedule of what comes when. While that CAN be an important part of any physically active lifestyle, at this point, I'm just trying to get you off the couch and out the door.So, at this moment, I'm talking about making exercising a regular part of your daily routine. It should be as much a part of your life as brushing your teeth or getting dressed. With that in mind, I want you to get much the same feeling when you skip your workout as you would if you walked outside without your pants o…

Getting up and down stairs, kneeling, gardening, dancing, and exercise. All these and much more becomes affected. There are many common causes of knee pain.

A Healthy Dose of Medicine for the Soul

By James Snyder A large segment of the human population takes things way too seriously for their own good. The strange anomaly is that most people laugh at the wrong thing and fail to laugh at the right thing. This serious incongruity has robbed people of a healthy attitude towards life in general.Those who take life too seriously are in danger of missing the great joys of living in a crazy world like ours. I am not sure about the scientific research but I would guess that for every sad moment it takes one hundred laughs to balance the books. Some people are about ninety-nine laughs short of a real sane moment.I like the old English proverb that says, "Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone."From my perspective, if you cannot laugh with someone you will not be able to cry with him or her and have it mean anything.According to some medical advice, it takes more facial muscles and energy to frown than it does to smile. Of course, the only exercise so…

Type 2 Diabetes - Are You Ready To Make Lifestyle Changes?

By Beverleigh H PiepersThere are two significant challenges to implementing sustainable change in your lifestyle... The first is getting started. If you have listened to a friend describe their "plan" to exercise, eat healthily, or improve their health status, you have probably thought how easy it sounds. How often has it happened? While some follow through, unfortunately, many do not. That is because it is easier to have the vision than it is to execute the plan. Change is never simple, but it does make a difference especially for anyone who has Type 2 diabetes or heart disease.The second challenge is maintaining the effort required to see the change through. It is not enough to exercise a few times and then abandon the plan entirely. While at least this ensures the first challenge has been overcome, what is the point if healthy habits are not maintained?It is easy to talk about improving your lifestyle, but it is difficult to stay disciplined when it comes to food choices…
