Make extra steps for yourself!

We keep our soda in an out building that is about 100 yards from our house. If I have a craving for one I have to walk those extra steps to get it, and not having it so accessible makes me think twice about actually going out to get one.

Walk While Talking on Your Cell

At home, when the cell phone rings and I know it will be a 10 minute or longer conversation, I get up from my desk and start to walk in place. It's amazing how much exercise one can fit into a day just be talking on the phone and moving, moving, moving.

Relaxing

I have been watching the sky & clouds each day as a way to stop and relax a moment or two in my busy day

Staying cool when it is too hot to workout.

Put a cool wet towel around your neck when it is too hot to workout. The cool wet towel will help to keep you cool as you work out.

Drinking More Water Made Easy

I found a clear 'plastic' insulated glass (looks like a regular everyday glass) with a screw-on top and a straw made by Aladdin at Target. So easy to fill it up and realize after a bit of time I've taken in 16 ounces of water.

Noxzema for Sunburns

If you get a bit too much sun, try using old, classic Noxzema to ease the discomfort. Slather it on heavily and while it is a bit stinky it will cool the burn off and hopefully you'll see some improvement by morning.

I use my hands!

I write on my right hand "Stop Wasting!" that way when I reach for something I shouldn't, I see that message and really think whether it is worth it. No wasted exercise here!

avoid rashes between skin folds

Hot weather and working out can bring about nasty and uncomfortable rashes or skin breakdown due to excess sweat in warm dark places if you have skin folds or fat rolls. To combat this you can use zinc oxide(diaper rash cream) and talcum powder in the folds to stay dry.

Chiropractic care has many benefits

I never "believed" in chiropractors until a few months ago, because I never understood how important your spinal health is to your overall well-being. Finding a "Maximized Living" doctor in my area has helped me tremendously. I highly recommend getting checked, even if you "feel good."
