Governor's program begins spring effort to get Kentuckians moving
Get Up, Get Out, Get Fit, Get Moving Adair County and Weight, The Reality Series is kicking off Monday, April 3rd.
"Make Physical Activity Fun," says Kelli Bonifer from the Adair County Extension Agency.
Despite its many health benefits, daily physical activity can sometimes feel like a chore. The good news is physical activity doesnt have to feel like work! The key is to choose activities that you enjoy and make it fun so youll stick with it.
If you enjoy being alone, use your physical activity session for quiet thought and reflection. If it would be more fun for you to be with a buddy, ask a friend to join you for a walk instead of a meal, or organize a walking group with family and friends.
The atmosphere of your activity is important. Find a place where you enjoy going. It might be a local park, the mall, a fitness center or right in your own home.
The best time to exercise is a time that works best for you. Everyone is a little bit different. You might enjoy the early morning before your day gets started. Lunchtime can be a great time too. Take a break from work and use half of your lunch hour for a walk, or use the stairs. Sometimes evening provides the best opportunity. Take a brisk walk with your family after dinner, or play an active game together.
When it comes to physical activity the options are endless. Try to think of things you did for physical activity as a child. These activities werent work at all; they were fun! Fly a kite, play a game of tag, or have a hula-hoop contest with your family. Try a new sport, or change your walking route. Try an exercise video at home or join a group exercise class. Be creative and bring back the fun of physical activity. Its time to Get Moving Adair County!
Get Up, Get Out, Get Fit, Get Moving Adair County and Weight, The Reality Series is kicking off Monday, April 3rd. $10.00 per person (adult or child) includes a Get Moving Adair County T-shirt as well as a goody bag filled with all kinds of good stuff.
