I prefer being active to being idle. I can become your worst nightmare if cooped up for too long with nothing to do. When I was a kid I loved being outside exploring and creating adventures. I still do and escape the 40-hour desk jockey gig as much as possible. You have to find that balance in your life when it comes to being active!
Do you try to get 30 minutes of exercise in each day? I brisk walk if I am not able to hit the gym or get a full workout in. Plus I have cut back on the exercising to 3 days a week too. Being inactive can take a toll on your body, especially if you sit or stand for long periods of time.

The benefits of being physical are:

- Helps prevents injuries, especially falls
- Helps develop better form and posture

Imagine if you had the ability and ease to do the things you needed to do on a daily basis! Just being able to live your life to the fullest!
