I love all of your wonderful, thoughtful questions. Thank you for taking the time to post them. In this segment, I share about motivation and what I like to call the “May I’s”.
Mind, Body, & Spirit
This weekâ€™sÂ heart healthy tipÂ is so simple:Â to keep your heart healthy, pick up the phone and get yourself moving! Â I know, I know, when do you have time when you can barely make time to wash your hair or get enough sleep, but I swear itâ€™s easier than you think (for example, Iâ€™m writing this tip on my phone, from the treadmill at the gym hahaha). MULTI-TASK people! This tip is fun and a little silly, but itâ€™ll help you out in the long run.
Skip the elevator so you can return a call and take the stairs instead. Â Â Another way to get active while on the phone is to do squats while gabbing. Â Or hey, while youâ€™re walking down the hall at work and talking with a colleague, throw in a couple of lunges. Â Sure people might wonder about you, but itâ€™s for your heart! and it will help your butt too!!!
As you may remember,Â Iâ€™m participatingÂ in theÂ American Heart Associationâ€™s campaign to promoteÂ heart health.Â So each week Iâ€™m giving simple tips thatâ€™ll help you stay healthy! Â These little tips that can go a long way, and this one was inspired by my dog, the beautiful Lady Bug. Â She is a wonderful companion and we take great care of each other even though sometimes she can be a handful (I guess she would say the same of me if she could talk). Of course I was blessed with a dog that has a lot of â€œself-esteem.â€ Â We often have to duke it out as I remind her who is the Alpha. This can occasionally make walks an interesting endeavor cause there are times when our walks turn into â€œcarriesâ€ when she decides she wants to hang and watch birds fly by instead of actually walking, but no matter what we walk.Â
