Keeping our patients / clients as active as possible throughout their lifespan is our goal as health professionals. It is also one of the most rewarding parts of being a Podiatrist, whether it's competitive cycling, running, dancing, archery, basketball, netball, skateboarding, surfing, rowing or any other sport you can share. But what I find most rewarding is keeping patients moving through life.
Incorporating incidental exercise into your day is one of the most proactive steps you can take to improving your health.
I try to model this choice as much as I can, but as with many modern mum's, the excuses mount up very quickly. One of my common excuses is that I have too much 'stuff' to transport with me to commute to work on a bike.
This morning I was too tired to do any formal exercise training, and considered my day, sitting in the clinic for most of the day, and considered the glorious summer weather that was there to be enjoyed, and made a special effort to ram as much 'stuff' as I could into my pannier's on my commuter, leave a couple of minutes earlier and ride my bike to work.
Looking forward to hearing your stories of how you choose to add a little more movement to your day.
