Hi everyone on the interweb,
Just a quick message today to see how you all are doing. I am well and ready for another week.
I wanted to quickly ask a question or two about healthy behaviours. We all know that it is hard to find time for exercise in our busy lives. I wonder how important healthy behaviour is to you? Do you make time for it? Walk or run or workout? I do my best but with a busy home and work life there is little time. I have taken to waking up early for a workout and using a pedometer to try and increase my daily step count. I have had some success with both methods. I am also finding that as my daughter grows older, I get more exercise now just playing with her. It is not yet strenuous, but in another 1-2 years I imagine it may become so. (We play “Scooby Doo vs the ghosts” and run around chasing each other for lots of fun!)
I am also curious – do you think government should have a role? It is certainly much more cost-effective to invest in prevention programs (e.g. exercise tax credits) which reach a large population, than to pay for yet another bypass procedure for a single patient. Do you think government should be doing this? Or is this your own business in which government should not intrude?
As always I am curious to hear what you think? What is your exercise program?
