Creative Play

by Beth Haley

Good exercise and practice, combined with play, is good for the soul. My children just can’t seem to be serious for too long – which is fun for those of us caught off guard! They remind me of the youthful healthiness of movement and laughter. With this in mind, I got a hula hoop the other day. So far, the most exercise I’ve gotten from this new motion plan has been in patience.

In what ways can you incorporate “play” into your health and exercise practice?

    good luck with the hula hoop. I’ve never been able to even get one revolution of my hips completed before it fell to the ground. So that definitely would not be my choice for exercise and play. I know I’m in the minority, but I like exercise just by itself. I don’t need music, TV, a partner, or to play to enjoy my exercise time. πŸ™‚

    Thanx, I think I’ll need the luck with it! When it comes to swimming, walking, or yoga, I’m all in. No extras needed to make it a great workout. But anything else… I have a mini trampoline and the only way I’ll get on it is to have a tv show going. Runners amaze me. Now, that’s torture. I’m getting into some dancing though which is a lot of fun and great exercise!! πŸ’ƒ Txx for stopping by!
