Did you brush your teeth today?

Probably the answer to that question is “yes”…of course you did. You probably did it without even thinking about it. Brushing your teeth is one of those lifelong habits that you just “do”. Would you agree?

This month's issue of Weight Watcher's magazine had an interesting perspective on exercise. Ideally, exercising should be something you just “do” like brushing your teeth. It needs to be something that we do not question and is a non-negotiable. Nevertheless, in order to make that happen it must be consciously scheduled into our lives. If you work another job in addition to your party plan business, that might mean walking during your lunch hour. If you have small children at home, you may have to get up 30 minutes earlier in the morning. Here is the good news.

Studies show that no single type of exercise works best. One study found that women who participated in aerobics classes had the same weight-loss and fitness results as women who simply increased time and effort spent doing everyday chores.

Staying healthy through physical fitness is an important component to staying balanced for life. We work to keep our family/business relationship balanced as we build our home-based businesses. However, it is just as important to factor in personal health and spiritual well-being.
Summer is an excellent time to begin new habits that will become the building blocks to a more well rounded “you”.

Why not start today by mentally associating brushing your teeth with exercising? If life throws you a curve ball and you cannot “formally” work out, just go about your day with more enthusiasm. Put some jazzy music on the CD; you will be surprised at how much fun and energy it can put into those otherwise “ho-hum” activities like vacuuming, making the beds, or phone work!
