Don’t Mope: Go Jump Rope

 

We’ve all been there: upset and caught in a loop of despair. You feel like this photo of Bette Davis.  You drop on the bed and obsess. Or worse, go on a binge—eating, drinking.  The best thing to clear your head? Go work out. Now, it won’t be easy at first. The law of physics, after all, says things at rest stay at rest.  You gotta get up the will power to get moving. But once you do, it gets easier. Things in motion stay in motion! After the work out, you won’t feel like Bette looks.

Winter Exercise: Skating!

When your blades sail along the ice, you feel like you are flying. Ice skating hasn’t changed that much over the years.  Once you get over the wobbles and gain confidence, there is nothing like it.  Love these old images.  Hope they inspire you to go to the rink or out on a lake if you are lucky enough to live near an outdoor skating venue.
