Our bodies aren't designed to sit for long periods of time, and I'm beginning to feel it again.
I used to do yoga and stretching, but I could never make a habit out of them.
Do you have any tips or suggestions?
Because I have serious, serious back problems, I get up and walk around outside every hour for about 10 minutes. Helps tremendously with the end of the day problems.
I can totally relate to not being able to make a habit out of working out or stretching! I love yoga but for years I could never do it consistently. However, this year me and a few of my friends decided to create a little accountability group. We do our exercises at home and then text the group to report back and remind others to do their daily exercise. We're on our third "30-days of yoga" challenge at this point! So yeah, I'd recommend getting into one of those "30 days of [exercise]" challenges with a couple of friends to support you and keep you on track. It worked very well for me!
I walk 15000 steps (like 6.5 miles according to FitBit) and lift weights for an hour 5 days a week. Exercise is not my problem. My problem is I got too much time on my hands. I need a hobby of sorts. Went looking for classes to get one on one training in Spanish and can't find what I want. I want someone to talk to me for like 20-30 minutes at least 5 days a week so I learn conversation. I think I moved into the worst county possible in Atlanta.
