Yesterday Kristen and I went to visit my sister and her kids. Halloween will be here very shortly so we made plans to get together for our annual pumpkin carving. It’s so great to see the kids faces as they get creative and help make some cool pumpkin faces.
My sisters kids are 7 and 5 and are full of energy. What has this post got to do with workouts you might ask? Spontaneity and inspiration I gladly answer.
When we walked through the door to say hello the kids ran up, mentioned they were so excited to make pumpkins and asked politely, “if it’s ok can we go on the trampoline with you first”?
It was hard to say no to those adorable little faces so I said “yes!” We preceded to jump on the trampoline before lunch for what seemed like quite a while, but who was I kidding, I was enjoying myself! We had a lot of fun and it was so energizing and playful.
Remember what is considered to be a ‘work out’ doesn’t have to be a hard slog at the gym. Just remember when you are open and ‘go with the flow’ you might feel inspired to go hiking through the woods, take a bike ride, walk in the park, do some yoga, or hit the trampoline. I was on that trampoline for nearly 45 minutes which was totally awesome and time just whizzed by. What really is a “Workout?” Anything that keeps you active. Work-outs in my eyes are meant to be fun and enjoyed that’s the secret to longevity and fitness. Just keep your body moving. The kids know this innately and they served to remind me yesterday…
Oh and by the way I slept like a log last night and woke up feeling incredibly refreshed this morning! A good workout is like a good investment…in yourself. Happy Halloween!!
