Keeping the Body Strong

So how are you all feeling now that the days are shorter and it keeps raining???? Exhausted perhaps?

Morning walks are in darkness and the thought of a walk after dinner is out of the question?  I know how you feel.

How did we go from flip flops and barbeques, tons of exercise and who cares about lack of sleep to THIS????

It’s called an adjustment period I guess.  Last week for the first time in years I came home at 3:00 one afternoon and slept the rest of the day away.  I also cut back a couple of days of walking and slept in.  Went to bed early a couple of nights and even embraced snoozing on the couch by 7:30pm.  A wonderful thing happened this week, I FEEL GREAT!!!

I know that we sometimes get fixated on exercise and eating healthy to give us energy and keep the body strong but I do believe that sleep may very well be the hottest commodity this time of year.  Ever wonder why the flu runs rampant in the fall?  We’re all adjusting, exhausted and trying to keep up with it all.  Well I say, nap, sleep, snooze and repeat.  The gym will always be there the next day, week or month.
