According to Wikipedia the word selfish means, it’s an act of placing one’s own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others. It’s ok to care about yourself, especially when it comes to your health. Sometimes we have to be selfish & put our own needs ahead of others.
It’s nice to have a few minutes to yourself every now & then, and what better way to do it than getting some exercise in. Exercise helps with our self-esteem. For many people you can’t help but to have a more positive attitude after you work out. According to wikipedia physical activity can also help prevent depression & can even augment an individual’s sex appeal or body image. Exercising can limit the risks for cardiovascular disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes & obesity.
It’s important that we all take 30 minutes a day to concentrate on ourselves & get some exercise in. Here are a few helpful tips to help you out:
- Pack a gym bag. We pack our lunches so why not pack a bag for working out. If you have clothes, shoes, & ipods ready to go you are more likely to go to the gym or go for a walk after work.
- We have 112 parks located around the Oklahoma City area. We have 32 walking paths. Make sure to find one around your home & work.
- Get an accountability partner. It’s easier to go when you have someone to go with.
Remember positive attitudes make positive changes!
