May is Physical Activity Month

When did exercise become a ‘chore’?

Maybe when we took chores OFF our daily activities list and added exercise to stay active! Our society then recognized that for some, exercise was a chore. In an effort to get people more active, we began to focus on physical activity – hence the use of trackers and counting steps. The bottom line, if it isn’t convenient and/or fun it will be more difficult to be consistent with our ‘movement plan’. Personally….I prefer running 3 miles (6000 steps) over watching my tracker and parking further away, taking the stairs, etc. What is your ‘go to’? Structured exercise or physical activity? This month Balanced Wellness will be focusing on all the components of Physical Activity.
