Are we as active as we think?
Summer is often considered a great time to be active. There's many more hours of daylight and the weather seems to cooperate much more often than during the other three seasons. Summer also brings with it many additional obligations such as running the kids around to various camps, vacations to get ready for or unpack from, social gatherings, youth sporting events, yard work, house projects....and the list goes on. While some of these activities are more "active", many are not. We need to be careful that while we become busier, we are not becoming less active. Take a minute to reflect and assess. Then, take a look at your week ahead. Are you planning time for activity and exercise? If not, pencil it in. It doesn't have to be going to a gym. It can be a bike ride with the family, a hike with friends, or a friendly game of backyard volleyball at your next barbecue. If it's not planned though, it's easy to become busy and not be as active as we think!
